DIR-655 Antenna replacement

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

One of the antenna broke and I need to replace it. However, I did not find any supplier and I am left with the option of going ''after-market''.
I first looked over ebay and found this:
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/3-9dBi-RP-SMA-WiFi-Antennas-Asus-RT-N16-RT-N66U-RT-AC66U-AC1750-D-link-DIR-655-/290896752599?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43bacc2fd7
OEM are rated 3 dBi, these are 9 dBi... Too good to be true?

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/3-2dBi-2-4GHz-5GHz-5-8GHz-Dual-Band-WiFi-RP-SMA-Antenna-D-Link-Router-DIR-655-/301409312468?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item462d651ed4
2 dBi... lower rated but still better than only 2 antennas.

I wonder which one would you advise? I am looking for a replacement and I don't want to increase the power output ideally.

*lower DB if you don't want to increase range/output..

*higher DB if you want increased range/output..

 

**cheapest.. build your own with some solder, a connector and a coat-hanger
