Give your computer a powerful WiFi boost, good for dead zones, travel and RV.

The Dual Band Super USB WiFi Antenna DX can be the best WiFi solution for home, mobile, RV, student and travel. It plugs into your PC computer's USB port for a powerful WiFi Internet reception. With this antenna the typical range for 2.4 GHz band is now 400' to 500', even through a few standard walls. If you are closer to your router you can switch to 5 GHz for 3x more speed. If you are further away, the long-range performance of the 2.4 GHz band is much better. The Super WiFi Antenna DX has improved WiFi stability in crowded city conditions and longer range than a typical WiFi Extender.

Plugs into a computer USB port. Software for Windows® 7-10 is included on USB drive or download from the Downloads/Manuals tab. Compatible with 802.11 B, G, N and AC. Maximum tested range is about 1.5 miles with no obstructions on 2.4 band. Weather resistant - rated IP65. This antenna is not compatible with the CC Vector Repeater.

Includes 15' USB split cable, lanyard, suction cups for window, hook and loop, cable ties.

Not compatible with Apple's MAC OS

Weight: 1.8 oz. Size: 1.4" W x 10" L x 0.6" D.

*From your computer line of sight depends on obstructions.

My computer is not showing that the antenna is plugged in. What is wrong?

Check the connection between the antenna and the cable to be sure they are tightly connected. If only one USB port is available, make sure to use the main USB cable connector, not the optional Power Boost connector (single loose connector).

My computer shows that the antenna is connected but when I try to use my Internet browser I am unable to view anything. What should I do?

You may not have a strong enough WiFi connection. Successful connection to a wireless network usually requires a minimum of 2 bars of signal. If the signal is low, you can try relocating or re-positioning the antenna with a better line-of-sight view to the WiFi source; or the wireless network does not offer Internet service; or a firewall/virus protection is preventing access.

I purchased the Dual Band Super USB WiFi Antenna DX and when it is hooked up it does not improve my WiFi reception. Is there something I can do to make it work better?

Be sure that the antenna is positioned vertically in the center of the window, if the WiFi source is outside your location. Using the optional 30 foot USB split cable, you can mount your antenna outside and up high for best reception. Visit www.ccrane.com/SPC for more information or to purchase the 30 foot USB split cable, or coaxial sealant.

Which side (front or back) faces the window when using the suction cups?

It is up to you. The Dual Band Super USB WiFi Antenna DX is omni-directional, so it can receive the WiFi signal from any direction.

Can I use the antenna with a non-Windows device to increase my WiFi reception?

No. The Dual Band Super USB WiFi Antenna DX requires installation of Windows software drivers.

What does the red light on the antenna mean?

The flashing light means the antenna is getting power and is communicating with the computer.

Can I connect the Dual Band Super USB WiFi Antenna DX to more than one Windows computer/laptop?

No.

I have a CC Vector Repeater. Will the Dual Band Super USB WiFi Antenna DX work with the repeater?

No. Unfortunately the CC Vector does not have the drivers to support this antenna.

Can I use a passive USB extension cable to add on to the existing length of the cable that came with the Dual Band Super USB WiFi Antenna DX.

No, the Dual Band Super USB WiFi Antenna DX should not be connected to an additional passive USB extension cable. Please use the 15 foot USB split cable that came with the antenna, or replace it by purchasing the optional 30 foot USB split cable.

My laptop/computer has an internal WiFi antenna. Is it necessary to disable it before installing the software and the Dual Band Super USB WiFi Antenna DX?

It is not required, but it is recommended. If both WiFi connections are going at the same time, it will require more power from your computer and create extra heat. Usually there is a button, switch, or key on a laptop that disables the built-in WiFi device.
