Point to Point Wifi Antenna – Surf the net in your shed…3 miles away!

Image

If you need long range wi fi, then take a squiz at this Point to Point Wifi Antenna. It shoots out wi fi EM in an arc, 16° horizontally and 21° vertically and the seller reckons it will work nearly 5km (3 miles) away with a clear line of sight. You’ll need to buy a few adapters and the antenna will replace the standard aerial on your router but if you need wifi in the shed and it’s miles away, this should do the trick. US$89.95 for each antenna, adapters and cables extra.

This 15 dBi antenna is the best antenna we tested for point to point applications over long distances. In our tests, it provided a much stronger signal than other yagis claiming the same gain, and at half the size. This compact antenna has a narrow beam width (16 degrees horizontal/21 degrees vertical) that directs the WiFi signal and helps to prevent interference with your neighbors.

  • This looks like something that my current ISP is using for my internet connection. Now that I see it, it looks like I could have done it myself and I let them overprice me for the installation. You learn something new everyday!

    • Don't forget Jeremiah, you need two of these aerials and the connectors, so you may not have been ripped off.

  • I'm looking for point to point audio like this. Anyone know if this can be adapted to send analogue audio?

  • I doubt it as it is digital but i'm no expert

    Up to 5km away? Yeah right! With the ever growing population in this world; where am I going to find a line of sight 5km apart with no obstruction? The worst thing, if you need to physically reboot your modem, it will be a long walk back from your shed.
