Ok I am new to the forum but not new to wireless. I have a problem with tinkering with stuff and very inspired by the distance of consumer wifi. What I would like to start doing is tinkering with how far I can shoot a wifi and just see what I can do with it. I have access to a 2 story building in the middle of town, the city water tower, a 200 foot wireless concrete tower at the office, and too much free time. I live in a small town in Florida so everything is pretty flat around here. Only problem is to many trees but I hoping to overcome with tall objects. Anyhow I am looking for some antennas that are portable that can fit in the car and some fairly good wireless ap's. I currently have a WRT54G v2 and a WAP54g v2. I have played with Tofu and Thibor and like the Linksys look.I also really like the way the Yagi's look so I am more leaning to those although grids are more powerful but not as eye pleasing. Do you guys know of a good source to buy antennas? Do you think my Hardware I currently have is efficient. I would like to get the most out of whatever I buy. I prefer Linksys or Cisco but not wanting to spend a lot as I am just getting motivated. Do you have other hardware that you would recommend? Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.
