Can I plug this in to my sky router to extend my wifi 

Asked by: Bobby
It would depend on the model of Sky router you have. This would connect via a reverse polarity SMA connection, if your router has such a connection for an external antenna then this should work fine.

On holiday I have my laptop in the caravan, roughly 400yds away the farmhouse has a BT hub/router. When asked to test it out on Wi-Fi it didn’t work. What can I get to place in the caravan to receive a signal?

On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.

Can you tell me if this antenna will work with a BT hub

Asked by: PaulMG
The BT hub does not have removable antenna so this item would not be suitable.

Hi I am a none tech person , Will this unit help improve the signal to my Laptop from a dongle 3 connection ? or is it just to enhance the wifi connection from an external router unit say on a camp site ?
Asked by: Anonymous
Sorry the product is not suitable for a telephony dongle it would be used on a wi-fi dongle with a small SMA type aerial connector

Does this require a specific operating system to run?
Asked by: Anonymous
no, the item connects as an antenna to a router/network device with a reverse SMA connector so is unrelated to the operating system used.
