Most Wi-Fi enabled laptops and desktops have internal adapters. Therefore, it is difficult to pick up the strongest wireless signal and to change the settings of your antenna. In most cases, internal adapter performance diminishes past a 150foot radius, resulting in an unstable connection speed. This causes online activities such as surfing, video chatting, streaming, and gaming, to constantly lag.

This provides high performance and long distance connections for your wireless network.
