CapTiFi Powered WiFi Antenna

CAPTIFI WiFi USB Antenna - $75.00 (plus postage)

The CaptiFi is an extremely versatile antenna for long range connections. It's compact size and weatherproof design means it will fit almost anywhere. Easily portable, the threaded base allows easy removal and relocation with no clamps or bolts necessary.

We used this antenna in the Caribbean with great success. It was attached to the bimini top supporting tube or we found even a better mounting and that was to use a telescoping boat pole/hook with a 1" Marine Antenna Thread adapter attached.

Then we moved the antenna with boat pole/hook to different places of deck until we got the best signal on our lapbook computer. A short length of line then tied the boat pole/hook w/Antenna to the boat. The 15ft USB cable can be extended by using a 16ft active extension cable. (Active means there is a little amplifier in the cable).

* The only adapter / antenna combination that will work on any computer; MAC, PC (with any version of windows)
* Automatic gain control to minimize the signal distortion on all access points
* Over 30dBm (1000mw) EIRP!
* 5-Volt power supplied via USB PC connector
* Industry standard USB (Universal Serial Bus) connector. Works with USB 2.0
* Sturdy one-piece aluminum/ABS Plastic construction
* Hardwired 15 foot USB cable
* Software CD included for PC and Mac
