Description

Longer Range than the average WiFi Extender - 2.4 GHz.

The Long Range Super USB WiFi Antenna 3 can be the best WiFi solution for home, mobile, RV, student and travel. It plugs into your PC computer's USB port for a powerful WiFi Internet reception. On average you can get 300 to 400 feet even through several walls. Performance: Most people can watch Netflix in HD quality with the Super USB 3 in an average situation. In an extreme line-of-sight test with no obstructions we connected to a network one mile away but speed was significantly reduced.

The Super USB 3 is best suited in a less WiFi crowded area as might be found in the country for a guest house, barn, end of a road or large home. The USB-3 uses 2.4 GHz which is longer range than other bands. (In a WIFI crowded "city" type area 5 GHz is usually a better choice). You can use the 2.4 GHz CC Vector "Extended" Long Range WIFI Repeater System in a WiFi congested area because the narrow beam antenna is not as susceptible to interference.


Features
  • Uses 2.4 GHz for longer range than 5 GHz
  • Installation is usually straight forward but if you have a question or a problem please call C. Crane! Be sure you have your WiFi password!
  • Antenna and 15' cable can be mounted up high, in window or outside for a better connection to a host router or Free Hotspot
  • Low Noise Amplifier for faster throughput and longer range
  • Indoor Outdoor Water Resistant Design (IP65 Rated)
  • Suction cups for window mount included or eye hole for your fastener
  • Includes 15' USB Split Cable for no power loss with weak USB ports
  • 802.11 B, G, and N. Up to 150 Mbps. WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPS encryption compatible
  • Works with Microsoft Windows 2000 to Windows 10. CD included for driver installation or can be downloaded.
  • If you want to use multiple devices we recommend a CC Vector system.

Works very well out in the sticks
I live and work at a remote wilderness lodge. Our only access to the world is our satellite internet service. We have wifi routers in the lodge itself but i live in a trailer several hundred yards from them. I could occasionally get a bar of signal and maybe get my email or the news. The CCrane WIFI antenna 3 has quadrupled my signal at the same distance. The power boost option (second usb plug) really does help as well. This frees me up to move my camper further back into the trees so as not to visually impact the lodge grounds. Nobody wants to see a 1962 camper outside their window when they are paying to stay here, and I don't blame them. Along with a small solar/battery setup this CCrane antenna will allow me to have a bit of convenience in my time off from work and benefit the lodge. This antenna does work exactly as advertised. One tip I wrapped my antenna, including the connectors, inside a plastic bag and secured the bag with a rubber band. It is hung unde
PROS
Compact design,simple setup on Windows 7,power boost option really works,doubled reception at same distance,very long length cord,great attachment options


CONS
Case not entirely waterproof


BEST USES
Extending range of wifi for a laptop

Best WiFi Antenna Made
I have used this unit on Windows and Ubuntu, and it is excellent. I even installed the unit on the roof of my house in the scorching sun, wind and rain it it performed superbly. If mine ever breaks, I will buy again. If you need an antenna that will pull in weak routers, this is it. Notice that the low ratings are all from Mac owners. The problem is using Macs, not the antenna.
PROS
Powerful. Sturdy. Easy.

Stopped working
This product worked great until I upgraded OSX to Yosemite. Now it is useless. I see the explanation in a prior review, but Crane should either write the software themselves or have a better contractual relationship with those who do. This is not acceptable. You are abandoning all your Mac users.

One Very Big Problem
There is one big problem with this antenna that, if I had known prior to purchase, would have changed my mind about the purchase. The software to support the antenna is not consistently updated for Macs. Per the response to my complaint that I received from the manufacturer: Unfortunately we do not write the software for our USB devices. This normally comes from the manufacturer of the chipset that is used in our products. We will do our best to get an updated driver for our products and do understand the importance of keeping up to date with changes of software. You will be contacted via email once we hear of any updated software drivers. The manufacturer went on to say that it could be days, months, or even YEARS before the software is updated. Without updated software, the antenna is a useless piece of $100 hardware. The software is currently not updated for Apple OS X Yosemite (10.10), so the antenna that I purchased just over one year ago is currently useless.

GREAT RECEPTION
We have been having constant Wi-Fi problems at the RV parks until the purchase of this antenna. I mounted it on a piece of conduit with tie wraps and ran the wire through the slide clamping the pipe with simple spring clamps from the hardware store. The software is a breeze and the reception now is better and faster than my AT&T Wi-Fi. Excellent product to cure your problem and easy to use and install. You wont be sorry purchasing this antenna.

So far so good!
Suctioned cupped the varmint onto a high (10ft) eastward facing window about 25ft from computer. Turn on windows 7 and as advertised the varmint went off to ccrane and found the drivers and installed same. The varmint works with Linux Ubuntu 14.04 and Mint 13. Will try varmint on windows 8 and post the results. The quality of Super 3 is much better than Super 2, however, Super 2 served my Linux Mint 11 OK. Super 3 delivers a much stronger signal. I hope the varmint keeps on giving :-)

Just get it! You wont be disappointed
I've owned this antenna now for almost two years with absolutely no problems. I've had to replace the 30 cable, but no big deal. I live in an RV Park and have the antenna mounted on an extendable pole, with the antenna about 3 above my roof line. The antenna was needed to get a decent signal from the parks wifi point. At a distance of over 200 yds. I get full strength signals the vast majority of the time. I wish you could come up with a device that would allow me to connect the antenna to a wifi router. At the moment i use a program called connectify that turns my laptop into a hotspot and transmits a wifi signal throught the trailer for my smartphone and my wifes laptop. it is a work around, but a dedicated device would be nice. all in all a great antenna

Outstanding!!
As everyone has said, works way beyond my expectations. In-and-out 28?signal is now steady 100? I havent tested moving even further away, but I suspect Im not even challenging it. I'd order another one instantly IF ONLY it had a driver that would work on my wifes Android tablet.

Fantastic, BUT
This is a fantastic antenna. It really does pull in weak signals. Overall, it is a very valuable addition to anyones equipment. So why the 2 stars? Because it now CRASHES A MAC COMPUTER EVERY TIME IT IS REMOVED, necessitating a lengthy restart!!!!! This problem surfaced after the upgrade to OS X Mavericks. C. Crane, please make this antenna play nice with Mavericks and you are back to 5 stars!!
