  1. Your new antenna (with a dubious 16db of gain) has a RP-SMA connector but the AWUS036H adapter has a SMA connector. You need a gender-changer adapter for that antenna (such as this one HERE).

  2. why? when my new antenna has female connector and adapter has male connector. I can attach one to another
  3. May have something to do with you saying

    So I looked them both up and found the adapter has an SMA connector and the antenna has a RP-SMA connector.
    It it works, what's the problem?
  4. problem is... I can attach antenna to adapter but it cannot capture many wireless signals. But with my old antenna it can
  5. A smart-arse answer would be to keep using your old antenna, but you need something better than that.

    A 2.4Ghz vertical omnidirectional antenna with 16 DB gain would probably be in the neighborhood of 9 feet tall. It would be a collinear type antenna. You were taken. The one you bought might deliver 2.5db in real gain. A simple rule for buying anything on Ebay is to know what you are buying. If the price is too good to be true- then it probably isn't true.

    A small corner reflector would have been better. A good one (
    HERE) is available at Fry's and other places. The thing actually works as advertised.
