External Antenna for WRT54G???

Discussion in 'Cisco/Linksys Wireless Routers' started by davidnorthcraft, Jul 5, 2005.

  1. I am installing a WRT54G in a fire station made of cinder block and steel. I need a good strong signal outside the building for police cars and fire trucks. What would be a good external antenna I could use with this router. I would need about 10-20' of antenna cable.
    Thanks in advance!

    20' ! thats a lot of attenuation.
    a directional antenna depending on the arc starts at like 10 bucks.

    yet, you might think of a signal repeater / amplifier.
    if you are aiming for really long range stuff outside, you might be better off with other wireless solutions in the 4Ghz spectrum....

    I think you can put the router near to the windows. :roll:
