Product details

TP-Link 2.4GHz 8dBi Indoor Omni Directional Antenna

• 8dBi Omni-directional operation boosts your signal to a higher range
• Very easy to install, no software required
• RP-SMA Female connector, works with device with RP-SMA Male connector
• Manufacturer part number: TL-ANT2408CL

Indoor omni-directional antenna TL-ANT2408CL operates in the 2.4-2.5 GHz band and provides 8dBi omni-directional operation, which largely extends the wireless range and delivers much better wireless performance. The antenna offers the RP-SMA Female connector guaranteeing wider compatibility with most of the wireless equipments.

Replacing your wifi antenna with TL-ANT2408CL will significantly increase the range and strength of your wifi signal. This quality built omni-directional antenna is a direct replacement for the antenna that comes standard with your router, access point. Because it is omni-directional, no aiming is equired - it can send and receive wifi in all directions.

Installation is very easy - just detach your device's factory antenna and attach our booster antenna and you'll experience an instant increase in signal coverage and stability. Please note that the increase in signal strength depends mostly on your router or adapter; upgrading the antennas helps but the signal cannot transmit or receive at a level that your modem or adapter does not have.

Does this work for Bluetooth? Will it screw on to a bluetooth amplifier (which has lost its antenna)? Thanks

Asked by: Jaypee
This antenna would not be compatible with the frequency range for Bluetooth signals. At this time we do not have anything specifically designed for that purpose.
