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!!

 

 

2200mW NextG USB-Yagi Turbotenna for Android Apple and Windows devices

Here's a situation, the WiFi signal source is too far away from your handheld gadgets to reach. You need to use the 2200mW NextG USB-Yagi TurboTenna high power antenna to get online that would otherwise be impossible.

 

 

However, the 2200mW NextG USB-Yagi TurboTenna connects to the USB port a notebook computer from which it is powered to pick up a remote WiFi signal.

The catch is that neither do your phones and handheld devices have a USB port, nor sufficient power to drive the antenna.

A Macbook, on the other hand, has got a USB port with sufficient power but there is an uncertainty of the driver availability whenever a new OS release rolls out. We can't build the driver as proprietary information is required.

This problem was solved by the modular design of the 2200mW NextG USB-Yagi TurboTenna that connects to USB port of the Catch n Share Repeater from which WiFi tethering is securely established with the handheld devices.

2200mW USB-Yagi TurboTenna USB cable notebook

3G/4G/LTE Secured Wi-Fi unblock the restriction of tethering

 

Some buyers had also found this solution handy for checking the WiFi security by placing the kit close to the signal source without the burden of a cable.

The repeater box is equipped with high performance 1.2 GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor. Compact size measured at 9cm x 7cm x 2.5cm. It comes with a standard micro USB 5V/2A phone charger, but you can use a 5V/2A USB power bank or a 5V/2A Power converter fed from 24V/12V dc of your vehicle.

This innovative solution gets you closer to a Wi-Fi hotspot wherever you can without consuming your mobile data allowance. You may find it particluarly useful if you are relying on a pay-as-you-go data SIM card, or a low usage mobile data plan to get online.

So what happens if there is no Wi-Fi at all? Well, you may be surprised that the catch n share repeater can also accommodate your data SIM card with a 3G/4G dongle, and be able to unblock tethering as well.

The catch n share repeater is a local hotspot

No cable is required. It allows you to move your smart devices around within the coverage area.

Bypass the obstruction. The Catch n Share Repeater acts as a pivot point midway between the wireless router and the computers where a direct line-of-sight is not possible.

Latency

You probably know that the latency of a router causes a choppy video and high ping delay in online games. A low latency network connection is one that generally experiences small delay times, while a high latency connection generally suffers from long delays.

Excessive latency creates bottlenecks that prevent data from filling the network pipe, thus decreasing effective bandwidth. The impact of latency on network bandwidth can be temporary (lasting a few seconds) or persistent (constant).

Most router based repeaters in the market use the same set of antenna to cater the wireless links for the remote Wi-Fi network and the local clients, thus introducing persistent latency delay exacerbated by the protocol overheads.

Other wireless extenders, jailbreaking dd-wrt routers and wall socket type repeaters fall into this category too.

We have taken a different approach.

Latency is avoided by using the Yagi and Omni antenna to handle these two Tx/Rx links separately and independently, so that they don't have to slot in half of the RF duty cycle talking to the remote Wi-Fi network and another half for broadcasting to the local clients.

Having said that, we don't want to undermine the merits of the router based repeaters even though they come with additional latency, as long as you are using them as wireless extender for jobs like email and web browsing within a small area of coverage.

Range

Power dictates range and speed.

The NextG USB-Yagi antenna is driven by the built-in high power Wi-Fi amplifier. Together they offers a range of 4km in an open field (without obstruction) far beyond than that of a router based repeater typcially rated at 200mW.

Many buyers find it useful for pulling in a caravan park's hotspot or a marina clubhouse Wi-Fi ashore.

But the application is not limited to closing the distance of a remote hotspot. More buyers are begining to realize that it is a great tool to connect the HD/4K smart TV or a game console to the home wireless router at the far end of the house where latency is an important factor and runing a noisy BPL Ethernet is not an option.

Security

The Repeater scans for the hotspot, wireless router and access point through the high visibility of the Yagi antenna. Once the SSID (Service Set IDentifier, i.e. name of the remote Wi-Fi router) is selected, the Repeater makes a connection to it and boosts the original signal locally.

You can setup the Repeater with its own SSID and WPA/WPA2 security password different from the remote Wi-Fi router.

OS agnostic

We have been getting lots of enquires about the drivers availability of the Ralink RT3x7x and the Realtek RTL8188RU chipsets on Apple MAC OS X 10.12.x Sierra.

The truth is that all Wi-Fi devices using the same chipset now face the same driver pending issue.

The Catch n Share repeater solves this problem once an for all. You could even allow your Andriod phone and Samsung tablets and those that happen not having the driver to get on it.

 

Long range, faster and more powerful!
