Even More Range

 
Our 5 dBi omni directional antenna upgrade is designed to help you pick up even more signals. This 5 dBi gain rated omni directional antenna helps you pick up different networks than the standard 2 dBi antenna. 
 
Compatible with BearExtender PC, BearExtender PC v3, BearExtender Mini, BearExtender Mac.
 
Please note that 5 dBi gain sensitivity does not mean 2.5X the range compared to the standard 2 dBi antenna. 
 
This is because gain ratings are not computed linearly.
 
Because our 5 dBi upgrade has a different sensitivity pattern than our 2 dBi antenna, the 5 dBi upgrade will pick up different networks than the 2 dBi one. 
 
The 5 dBi upgrade will pick up some signals better than the 2 dBi antenna, while picking up some signals worse than the 2 dBi antenna.
 

Compatibility

 
BearExtender Mini
BearExtender for Mac
BearExtender PC
BearExtender 1200 for Mac BearExtender 1200 already includes a White 5 dBi and White 2 dBi antenna in the box.
Generally, the 5 dBi upgrade picks up more signals, with higher signal percents than the 2 dBi antenna. Please see the example test below.
