Having trouble tuning into your Wi-Fi signal? Maybe you’d rather leech onto the free hotspot a block over, but your signal’s not strong enough. Amped Wireless’ new UA600EX High Power Wireless-N 600mW Pro USB Adapter might be just the solution you need.
Coming in at 600mW of transmitting power, this little guy is twelve times as powerful as a typical Wi-Fi receiver. That adds up to roughly 4x the usable line-of-sight distance between your router and your computer. All that extra power means you can be a lot further from your Internet connection or power through an extra floor or two of your apartment building.
The UA600EX is part of Amped Wireless’ Pro line of Wi-Fi adapters – that means it comes with a solid, weatherproof casing and a metal stand that can be used indoors or out. It can also be mounted to a fixed desktop, wall or outside pole.
It also comes with a heavy-duty, waterproof USB cable that’s a whopping 26.5 feet long. With that much cable, you could probably mount this guy to your roof and get all of the internets in town.
All of them.
You might expect this much performance to be pricey, but the cost of these devices has come down substantially in recent years. Amped expects the street price of the UA600EX to hit around $99.99. If you don’t need to go quite so hardcore and keep your antenna indoors, the UA600 is available for $69.99.
