    If you Have the "stick" or "dongle" , you wrap it on that.

    Just an amplifying antenna... it helps a bit

    Just remember where to aim it...

    I bought this one last year, High-gain Wifi panel

    Took it to DR and put it up on a poll. Pointed at a residential building about 2 miles away, clear line of sight, and picked up 4 Wifi signals with good strength. Was only able to connect to 1 which wasn't protected. Using 2 of these babies (1 as the AP and the other as the Wifi antenna) I saw a video of techies reach over 6 miles, line of sight.
