    They are for medium/short range activities.
    My main rig has 16 gigs of ram and six core processor for better bruteforcing and other stuff. Main rig has 2 wireless systems. First one is Airlive WL 1700USB

    Nice setup, especially your main one. How does the TL-ANT2415D 15 dBi perform compared to the standard 5dbi from ALFA? I am thinking about getting one.

    It does a good job but make sure your cable is not longer than 4 meters after that Alfa's power gets drained and its range gets reduced but overalll I get the range about 800 meters without problems...

    I am interested in this antenna too (TL-ANT2415D 15 dBi ), but I worry about the shape of this product especially when installed on the rooftop, what if the lightning strike ...

    On rainy days you can simply unplug your antenna and don't worry about it...
