Wifi comparision/conclusion, SMA DBA etc...
SUMMARY OF TEXT BELOW:
Adapter 1: USb stick with sma connector, 15Dba
Adapter 2: Engenius Senao with removable antenna, 23DBa
What will it cost for me to make Adapter number 1 equally or better:tard: than adapter 2?
I would prefer the smaller stick if I can get the same send AND recieve as Senao for the same price.
Anyone? :nw: :nw: :nw:
Seller tells me there will be "no problem, dont worry" :tune:

I am comparing two items..
I have seen the Senao Engenius 362 external wifi usb adapter that people think is good! It is on 23dba /200mw output power.
To ship it to me costs total of 91$
I have also seen a usb dongle with sma female connector on the plug so that I can add an external antenna to it later. It has no antenna currently and has 15dba output power.
I understand the dongle is not as good as the senao but it is smaller and I get it for 65 including shipping. I imagine I will have to buy an extra antenna no matter which one I choose, and that´s why I wonder if its ANY benefit in getting this SENAO compared to the cheaper plug since I am going for the extra antenna anway? Is there any downsides that I have forgotten?
I mean with the smaller plug I can just drag a usb cable all the way from my computer and glue it to just under the front windshield behind the roof cover and just have a omnidirectional antenna folding down when I want to use it. I guess that will be harder to achieve with the a bit bigger Senao/engenius
According to threads it will be downsides with having the actual wifi device away from the windshield and instead have to pull coaxial antennas instead of using usb wires and just have the actual device higher up in the car... (?)
