Driven by the latest NextG 820.11n High Speed USB Wi-Fi dongle with a built-in RF amplifier, this slim and handy USB-Yagi directional antenna delivers a remarkable horse power of 2200mW at a top speed of 300Mbps.

Unlike most Yagi antennae with long broom and numerous director elements, the design of the NextG USB-Yagi aims at reducing the overall length of the antenna and whilst exceeding the isotropic gain with a wide 56 deg HPBW (half power beam width) beaming aperture to pick up the Wi-Fi signal nearby and afar, blending the best of both worlds.

See the excellent antenna performance below.

It is also slim and light weight that you could carry it in a traveller bag.

From a technical standpoint, no antenna can be designed with purely trial and error, let alone the ones without calibration and tuning which turn out to make a hugh difference in performance.

We use computer aided design (CAD) to engineer the seamless integration of the BALUN (the antenna's driving element) and the USB dongle (radio), a critical differential advantage for matching the impedance in the light of maximizing the signal transmission and penetration without incurring power loss in coaxial cable.

The antenna is made of rigid metal frame and elements so that its geometry, particularly the driver loop element, stays intact against transportation or normal usage for peak performance

As a result, it instantly improves your computer's Wi-Fi reception capability beyond the built-in standard factory gears.

It works within minutes. Simpy plug in the USB2.0 cable of the NextG USB-Yagi antenna to the laptop or desktop PC followed by a few simple clicks for CD-ROM driver installation - There is absolutely no need to worry about the cable compatibility issue.

What's more? You could construct a High Power Universal Wi-Fi Repeater with the additional 11N USB-Omni AP/Repeater kit. Typical application is to pick up Wi-Fi signal from ashore and let other computers share the Internet simultaneously.

Here's how it works. Use the USB-Yagi to catch the remote signal and share it amongst the other Wi-Fi PC clients with the 11N USB-Omni AP/Repeater. It works with all brands of (remote) wireless router, including OPEN or secured WEP, WAP/WAP2 PSK AES TKIP and 802.1x RADIUS server such as BT Openzone and Free Wi-Fi. Detailed Universal Repeater setup manual is included in the 11N USB-Omni AP/Repeater kit.

Simply faster and more powerful!!

 

 

Enabling a router to pick up remote WiFi and share it as a local hotspot

Your WiFi router is a hotspot that shares the boardband from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). The cable that runs from the wall socket to your router could either be an ADSL phone cable or a fibre cable, depending on the Internet access speed of subscription.

 

Types of Broadband input to your router
ADSL < 20 Mbps
Fibre > 20 Mbps
Router WiFi Access NO, mostly

 

Some routers are capable of supporting 802.11ac and 802.11n standards while most of the others are on 802.11n. However, the speed of Internet access has nothing to do with these standards because the bottleneck is at the broadband wall socket. You may find a bit faster in exchanging files between two devices within a router network over 802.11ac, but not so when accessing the outside world (commonly known as a cloud these days) because it is confined by the speed of your ADSL or Fibre broadband.

Many users have come to us for solutions of setting up a hotspot in their barns or properties nearby by pulling in the WiFi from their houses.

Solution 1 - for a solo computer

You could use the 2200mW USB-Yagi TurboTenna to pull in the WiFi from the house. This high power antenna has a pretty good signal reception through obstructions (except a metallic structure which has a shielding effect for wireless signals). This directional antenna is connected to the USB port of a Windows computer using the 2 meters USB cable supplied in the kit.

Solution 2 - setting up a local hotspot if you have a spare wireless router

In addition to the 2200mW USB-Yagi TurboTenna, the high power Wireless Access Bridge is needed as well. It was designed to drive 35dBm RF power into the antenna for pulling in the WiFi from the house and providing a broadband connection to your spare 802.11n or 802.11ac router.

The benefit of this solution is that you could setup a wireless network name and password in the barn or property nearby different from that of the house, so that the computers and gadgets of these two locations are not able to see each other. This increases the level of security particularly you are sharing WiFi access with some guests in another property.
