    I using two WRT's to make a outdoor bridge. I was wondering what the best antennas for the job is, and where do I get them. The link distance is about 150ft. Ideally the antenna is detached from the base unit because half of the equipment will be in a metal building, but if I could run an antenna outside, that would be perfect.

    This goes hand in hand with my thread. I have some nice panel directional and yagis I can use for my bridge. I want to know what the connection for the antenna is on the Linksys routers.

    i belive the connections are RP-TNC.

    hyperlinktech.com is a cool place to research different things(antennas, boosters, enclosures, etc)... they have a sub company that allows you to buy stuff form them... i think its like sharperconcepts.com or something simular.. check out what they have to offer...

    i think the record of 127mi for a 2.4ghz connections was obtained using their antennas.... dont remember exactly where i saw the article on the web...
