    it's good but the program won't work for windows 7
    JERRY -- indianapolis, IN   11/19/2010
    It works. I did have to place it in the window facing the wifi that I was connecting to as it would not work when I used a side window. The receptiong is much quicker and the connection does not drop. I am happy with it.

    Dont waste your Money! The software that comes with the antenna will cause the computer to lockup, I tryed it on two differnt operating systems and four different computers, they all lockup. If you have XP or Vista just let the computer find the new hardware. After it is hooked up and working the range is only about 1000 feet, not the advertised one mile or the range the manual claimes of one half mile. Very disapointed customer. John Stephens City, VA

    Product arrived the day we left on vacation. The first time I tried to use it, it found wifi and then quit and would not conect. I tried all the troublshooting and still could not get it to work.

    3.0 out of 5 stars great, BUT does not play well with Mac OS, May 12, 2010 By HawksEye - See all my reviews This review is from: Wi-Fi USB Super Antenna I live on the edge of a privately hosted, but publically available WIFI network. With my native laptop wireless, I could pick up signal outside my apartment or if I held my laptop up to my air conditioner no window on that wall. Needless to say, I knew there had to be another option other than hanging a shelf onto my a/c and standing on a chair to receive the signal. I hung this antenna inside my a/c box, ran the cable through the a/c and VOILA, free wireless access in my apartment! It works. Unfortunately, it is only compatible with certain mac OS versions and it is not stable. If my computer goes to sleep, the program freezes. Sometimes Force Quit works, sometimes it doesn't. If I force quit, I usually have to restart my computer to get the program working again. If I unplug the cable without quitting the utility program, my MAC crashes. IF i restart the computer without unplugging the cable, I can't even access the utility program to get it started. So, if you're willing to dance the right dance, this is a great option for internet access, but I do wish they would fix their software/driver program to play better with Mac OS.

    I wanted to boost my wi-fi reception off my laptop, especially when I use it at the cabin. My neighbor gave me his password to access his internet, but the signal is really weak. The antenna is easy to use, the installation was simple, and I am picking up wi-fi signals from all around the lake. I plan to mount this outside the cabin, and run the 15ft. cable to inside at my desk. This does the job I needed it to do. Have recommended this to others, and would buy again.
    JANE -- loris, SC   12/19/2009
    not happy at all minimally what was advertised. Up to a mile reception was advertised when producted arrived manual said 1/4 mile
    MARK -- marathon, FL   12/11/2009
    I am not sure if I should rate this. It worked only one time since I got it. It did improve my reception that time, but since then my computer will not use it. My device detector does not seem to recognize it. I live on a boat in a mooring field and would really like to have better than my internal antena.
    MARK D -- deer river, MN   2/8/2009
    I bought this in an attempt to improve WiFi reception at my mothers' home. It was an excellent purchase, she now receives an excellent & consistent signal. I might buy another for myself. C.Crane products are always high quality. 5 Stars!
    SOOKYEONG -- bryn mawr, PA   5/22/2008
    It really works. After super wifi antenna was installed, there were 3 or 4 times more wireless site. But weak signal site did not connected well. After all, it will help you.
    SCOTT -- caro, MI   5/26/2007
