    I saw a website that sell 9 dBi rubber duck antenna for Linksys WRT54GS(direct plug in) for $35 each. I'm wondering will it worth to get them? How much gain in distance I will get from this antenna? Do I need two hi-gain antenna or just one?

    Here is some information about them...

    Connector type : RP-TNC
    Gain (dBi.) : 9
    Height (cm.) : 55
    VSWR : < 1.5 : 1
    Vertical beam width : 25
    Horizontal beam width : 360

    Thank you,
