C. Crane is all about reception. In most cases we know how to boost a weak WiFi signal to attain the unattainable.

The Super USB WiFi Antenna 3 plugs into the USB port of your computer for powerful long range WiFi reception. Internal WiFi is not required and installation is a snap. It can help you maintain a network connection of more than 300 feet even through several walls and as an added benefit you can typically find several new wireless networks. In our extreme distance tests we were able to connect to a network a mile away (with no obstructions).

Over the years we have made numerous improvements to this WiFi antenna. It is now weatherproof, IP65 rated and has four times the power of our original version. It is one of the best and most versatile home, mobile and RV WiFi Antennas made.

NOTE: The Super USB WiFi Antenna 3 requires installation of software drivers. Gaming stations such as the Xbox® and the Sony PlayStation®, the iPad®, iPhone® and Android® devices are not capable of installing these software drivers. We are sorry but this antenna sold as is does not work on the MAC OS 10.9 or higher.

Update: Now there is a way to connect the Super USB WiFi Antenna 3 to all of your WiFi devices. Our new Super WiFi Repeater Kit will pull in those distant signals for improved reception of almost any WiFi device, including smartphones, tablets and even MAC operating systems (all versions).

It doesnt get any better
This antenna is the BOMB!! It pulls in a signal a half mile away strong enough to watch movies in HD. Easy install, a monkey can do it. I couldn't be happier.
Mine is outside and have had no problems with the weather, winter or summer.


If you live in a rural area it is great.

Didn't meet my expectations
I tried it where I was about 500 yards from my wifi connection spot. There was a slight elevation up to that spot and some mobile homes and trees in the path. I mounted the antenna up high, but I could only get 2 bars. Not enough to do anything.
Brings in other wifi sites.

Doesn't seem to work well in heavily wooded or hilly areas.

Level ground areas.
