    5 dBi Replacement Antenna (Black)






    Even More Range

     
    Our 5 dBi omni directional antenna upgrade is designed to help you pick up even more signals. This 5 dBi gain rated omni directional antenna helps you pick up different networks than the standard 2 dBi antenna. 
     
    Compatible with BearExtender Mini, BearExtender Mac, and BearExtender PC.
     
    Please note that 5 dBi gain sensitivity does not mean 2.5X the range compared to the standard 2 dBi antenna. 
     
    This is because gain ratings are not computed linearly.
     
    Because our 5 dBi upgrade has a different sensitivity pattern than our 2 dBi antenna, the 5 dBi upgrade will pick up different networks than the 2 dBi one. 
     
    The 5 dBi upgrade will pick up some signals better than the 2 dBi antenna, while picking up some signals worse than the 2 dBi antenna.

    BearExtender 1200 for Mac BearExtender 1200 already includes a White 5 dBi and White 2 dBi antenna in the box.
