    This antenna gave a true +3dBi gain over the similar 9 dBi antenna, so it works as advertised.

Omni WiFi Antenna w/ RP-TNC Connector

Omni Directional Dipole Antenna with RP-TNC (male) connector

  • For WiFi / wireless networks
  • 9dBi and 12dBi options (choose above)

Omnidirectional dipole antenna: Radiates signal with a beam of 360 degrees; also receives signal from 360 degrees around it.

Compatibility with wireless standards & applications: This omni directional antenna's range of frequency band compatibility in the 2.4 ~ 2.5GHz frequency band range, its very low broadband VSWR at < 1.8 (lower VSWR is better), and impedance matching to 50 Ohm gear, makes it suitable and compliant for all the following applications:

Features & applications

  • As access point antenna: Provides signal to clients in any direction (360-degree horizontal beamwidth)
  • As client antenna: Connect to an access point in any direction
  • Capable of extending your wireless range up to 300 meters.
  • Suitable for outdoor or indoor wireless gear with RP-SMA-female or SMA-female connector.


Compatible with Wireless Access Points & cards that have RP-TNC antenna jacks: Cisco/LinkSys Wireless Access Points have an RP-TNC (female) jack that is compatible with this antenna.

ROHS 3 & REACH compliant: Antenna, cable and connector are all compliant with ROHS 3 and REACH.

RP-TNC Connector Characteristics and Details:

RP-TNC is a round screw-type connector, with nickel-plated brass.

  • Nickel-plated brass is the best plating-alloy for corrosion-resistance.
  • RP-TNC is similar to BNC except that whereas BNC has a slotted mating collar, RP-TNC has a screw-down type connector. RP-TNC's screw-down connector performs better than BNC in the microwave spectrum.
  • RP=Reverse Polarity. Gender of RP-TNC is counter-intuitive: Click for details.
  • Articulating (Bendable) Right Angle: This antenna can be angled up to 90 degrees (articulating right angle) or positioned straight. The articulating (bendable) right-angle isn’t weatherproof: Water can seep into the angled part of the antenna. Articulating right-angle antennas are therefore recommendable for indoor use or protected outdoors, i.e. under an eave. If you need a weatherproof dipole antenna, you should choose either a straight dipole or one with a fixed right angle. See our weatherproof antennas .


All of our antennas pass QC test before we ship them.
