  • great website for wifi antennas

    just thought i would let you guys know, here is a great website for 802.11 antennas: www.hyperlinktech.com

    one of these is going into my trunk once i get an LCD and get it intsalled. 14.4dBi will get you some very nice wireless range.

    i also have one of these and theyre great, i was able to extend my wireless range by over 200%

        Aren't these both directional antennas? How do you keep them pointed at each other, when using in a car?

          I thought it a bit bizarre as well, He'd also need a plastic trunk!

                  If it has an antenna that can be unscrewed, you just take it off and srew one of these on in it's place.

                    I am in the early planning stages of my carputer, and plan on using a trashed(shattered screen) Toshiba Tecra 9000 as the brain. It has built in WiFi. Does anyone know of a way to attach a higher gain antenna to this type of setup?

                    If not, is there a pcmcia wireless card that anyone would recommend that has an external antenna connection?

                    TIA

                      fab-corp.com is really good, and they ship the same day.

                      BTW, to all who are looking at the amps, make sure you do not go over the EIRP.

                        I was at CompUSA yesterday and they have the Buffalo PCMCIA cards that you can attach a pigtail to and then an external antenna.

                        Card:

                        http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...653&pfp=SEARCH

                        I have no idea how well they work as I have never used one but this is a possible solution. I am sure there are others as well.

                        BTW, for all who need to know what EIRP is, here's an article explaining it.

                        http://www.wi-fiplanet.com/tutorials...le.php/1428941

                        I am not sure if there is anyone out there measuring this though so I don't see why it would matter.

                            Hypertech has a retail website (same prices, no minimums:

                            http://sharperconcepts.zoovy.com/

                            I also like Fab-Corp, so compare prices. I've made several purchases from Sharper Concepts and they were great.
