Can you use a TV antenna as a Wi-Fi antenna?

Sorry, this one’s a no. Each antenna is designed with a specific frequency range in mind, and while TV antennas work from about 50-800MHz, Wi-Fi antennas need to work in the 2.4GHz and 5 GHz bands. You need a completely different antenna for those.

The good news is that Solid Signal has a lot of Wi-Fi antennas… there’s guaranteed to be one that works in your situation. We literally have over 1,000 to choose from, and if you get confused, just give the friendly experts at Solid Signal a call at 877.312.4547 and we’ll help find the right one for your situation.
