    VSWR <1.5 @ 100MHz bandwidth
    Impedance 50 Ω
    Gain 7.8 dBi
    Polarization Vertical

      I use

      Model: EUB 362-Ext
      Price: $68 + Shipping from HauteSpot on eBay - Can probably be found cheaper but I had an eBay GC.
      FEATURES
      • Data Rates up to 108Mbps (in Super G mode) for maximum throughput
      • High Output Power up to 200mW (23dBm)
      • Support for External Antenna
      Link to PDF with the rest of the technical specs: http://pcomaha.com/EUB-362EXT.pdf

      This thing is absolutely amazing. I find more AP's than with any of my other wireless cards/antenna combos. The external antenna support is also a big plus as you can add a higher gain antenna and improve your range even more. I haven't had time to do any distance testing yet but intend to this weekend.
