    can i use my defogger as a wifi antenna?

    ok,
    i have already run a search on the forums and it does not seem that this has been asked before.

    can i use the defogger wire on my rear windshield as an antenna for wifi?
    i want to maintain the defogger functionality as well. i know i once read a post that stated you could not use the standard fm antenna because it was designed for the wrong frequency or something like that, it was posted by an old navy radio operator. i understand that i would probably need to put something inline with the wifi antenna to protect the card from voltage back flowing from the defogger. but is it possible?

    thanks in advance
