Networking firm Linksys today unveiled a range of high-gain antennas designed to boost the effective range of Wi-Fi networks.
The antennas include a pair of TNC Connector Antennas and a single SMA Connector Antenna.
"One of the most asked questions we get on our advice line and in customer service is how to get more coverage out of a wireless network," said Robert Auci, EMEA sales director at Linksys.
"Customers are looking for ways to get their Wi-Fi signal in more rooms throughout their homes and offices, as well in distant corners or other hard to reach areas."
The pair of TNC connector antennas are designed to help increase the effective strength of outgoing Wi-Fi signals and the receive sensitivity for incoming signals to obtain wireless access in rooms that the current signal is not reaching.
The attachable dual TNC connector antennas work with the following Linksys devices: WRT54GS, WRT54G, WAP54G, BEFW11S4 and WAP11.
The single SMA connector antenna is designed for connecting to single antenna wireless adapters, bridges and routers, including the WRV54G, WMP54GS, WMP54G and WET54G.
To fit the enhanced antennas users must replace the existing antenna attached to the router, access point, network adapter or bridge and attach the high gain devices in their place.
According to Linksys, there are no drivers to install and no modifications to the setup.
