Your wireless LAN devices such as access points and remote routers are equipped with external antennas for signal transmission and reception. These antennas have a certain Gain, providing an operation range determined by their manufacturers. Many manufactures equip their wireless devices with removable external antennas, allowing you to replace them with higher Gain antennas in case you wish to expand the operation range of your wireless network.
To replace an antenna of a wireless device with a higher Gain antenna, you can (1) remove the old one and mount the new one directly on the device, or (2) place the new antenna away from the wireless device in an exposed open space through an antenna extension cable for better signal transmission/reception.
The D-Link antenna cable kits provide the extension cables necessary to install an antenna away from a wireless device. Various cable lengths are available for selection to meet different installation requirements. These antenna cable kits are made of solid materials, providing protection from operation stress and rough environment conditions, including high heat, heavy rain, and intense sunshine.
For an indoor installation where your wireless device must be kept closely together with other equipment in a closet or computer room, for example, a D-Link antenna kit can also be used to place the antenna at an open place many meters away from the wireless device for best signal transmission and reception.
