    Default ALFA AWUS036H - better antenna?

    I'm looking to upgrade the ALFA AWUS036H's antenna. My friend has a massive one and it makes a large difference.. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks.

    Depends on what you want to do. Do you need directional or omni? Does it have to be portable?

    I'm looking for omni, not directional. And no, it dosn't have to be "portable" per se

    An omni antenna isn't the best choice, but if you want a big one you can try with this:

    Connector: N female
    Frequency band: 2400-2500 mhz
    Impedance: 50 ohm
    Polarization: Horizontal 360° - Vertical 20°
    Gain: 22 dBI
    Length:: 1300 mm
    Diameter: 32 mm
    Weight: 0.82 kg

    I guess it's hard to say how much better it is, but can you see 30% more APs, 2x more?

    Your antenna have a gain of 9 dbi, the antenna that I recomend have a gain of 22 dbi if you consider that wiht a gain of 3dbi you are doubling the power of reception of a wifi signal... 22 dbi is a lot more than 9 dbi....

    And if you want more power gain, the same vendor have a 30 dbi version...

    I think that your "+9dBi 15" 3x WiFi Booster Antenna" its cheaper but isn't better.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.
