Improve the placement of the antenna on any WiFi router by upgrading the antenna and moving the antenna to a place where it has direct line of site.
Use an RPSMA extension cable to reposition an omni rubber duck style antenna on an access point that has an RP-SMA female connector – which is almost standard unless the router is a Cisco or LinkSys model. The cable below, which is RP-SMA male to N-male connector, enables an upgrade to antennas of the highest gain and thus the most potential to reach the longest range potential of the WiFi Access Point: Because the N-male connector on this cable connects the the N-female connector, which is typical of the very high gain directional and omni-directional WiFi antennas of the 2.4GHz or 5GHz bands.
RP-SMA and RP-TNC are among the many antenna connector types that are used for WiFi antennas and coaxial cable assemblies. RP-SMA is an abbreviation of Reverse Polarity SMA, and RP-TNC is Reverse Polarity TNC, which is used on all Cisco and Linksys WiFi routers.
The cable below has RP-SMA male on one end and N-male on the other: N-male is commonly used on directional antennas and large omni-directional antennas.
