The O2Connect is a USB directional long range Wi-Fi antenna by RadioLabs.
The O2Connect is a plug and use device - no other hardware is necessary.
To utilize the O2Connect, you will need to point the antenna towards the WiFi source you're looking to extend.
RadioLabs states that the O2Connect can amplify a signal that is from 1.5 to over 7 miles, although they do state that "distances will vary depending on line of sight and other possible interference." We would caution that you will probably only be able to amplify signals at the shorter end of that range (or less) as most places where WiFi is available are places with obstructions in sight lines.
The O2Connect's feature set is very basic.
