Will TP-Link TL-ANT2424B be a good aerial?


Best wishes,

According to specifications of the TL-ANT2424B you should be getting around 30Mbps. [1]
Of course, you have to install antennas on both sides, as Doug already suggested, to make them "talk" in both directions and also make sure there are minimal possible obstructions between them, especially concrete or wooden buildings, trees, high voltage power lines, etc.
You have to mount them on a poles long enough to compensate for horizon curvature and direct them at each other to get maximum possible signal strength.
Also keep in mind that this setup will be prone to weather conditions like rain, snow, wind and could temporally make signal strength worse.
