Review: C.Crane High-Gain Outdoor WiFi Antenna (Long Range WiFi Extending)

C.Crane's Outdoor WiFi Antenna is WiFi receiver designed to bring in semi-distant WiFi signals. It is designed for use on RVs, boats, and other mobile entities.

C.Crane advertises that it "works great in open areas up to 3/4 of a mile."

It's mounts with a cast-aluminum mount with "U" bolts to a flat surface or pipe.

It is meant to be swapped with the existing antenna on your router, although you will probably need to order special fittings from C.Crane to make it work with your router.

The C.Crane Vertical Outdoor WiFi Antenna is omni-directional and designed for the 2.4 GHz WiFi band only.
