I want to give my sister free net access so am attemping to extend the range of my network. I have a WRT54G V5 with frame burst on. A friend who lives two doors away can access my wireless network through at least four walls with no problem at all. Perhaps a little naievly I looked on ebay and plumped for the antenna with the highest DB I could find, I bought this model - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=018&item=280040619277 Tech spec - Size - 500/75mm Weight - 0.4 kg Gein level - 17 dBi Polarisation: vertical/horizontal Angle: vertical: 32, horizontal:28 Impedanc: 50 Ohm I have fixed the antenna to the back of the router and dangled the antenna over a hanging basket frame outside my study at the rear of the house where the router is. That's pretty much all I've done so far. From the rear (left hand side on diagram) part of the house we can get a weak signal if we hold the laptop up to the window, but only just. I've got a horrid feeling I've gone about all this the wrong way. Help!
