    Can A Wireless Network Adapters Antenna Be used for GPS or Radio?

    I just purchased a EnGenius Model EUB-862 High Powered USB Network Adapter and i was wondering there is anything else this unit can be used for besides wireless Network Connections?

    Is there any hacks that will allow this to pick-up signals other than the ones it was desined for?

    For instance
    Can it pick-up RF? (still dont have a tuner)
    Can it pick-up GPS signals (No reciever)
    Or any other signal that may be usefull to us.

    I Have searched everywhere for info and nothing close have even been mentioned (that i found).

    I use RR (testing it and contrafuse)

    The overall goal is to add Radio, GPS and Networking into one Front End

    Any and all Advice about software or Hardware would be great!

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    First, I didnt realize i had posted in the wrong forum so i reposted.

    But besides that, why is it as if there is some sort of millitary theme amongst some mods. I don't really post but i have never started threads.

    Its a Clear Mistake.
    (ill read the manual someday)

    With that said ive noticed in every other thread on forums there is at least one, unbelievably hatefull, lil-goofy-Nuckelhead just waiten to on everybodys comments. Followed by some terse tone yappin Mod waiten to threaten somebody. Its almost like a complex they have. I havent been here enough to know how MP3car.com's Mods are.

    I dont know the policy on speaking your mind, but if its frowned Upon. Let me know and i'll put myself on vacation (right after i finish with this front end)

    Just for the record i didnt like the tone of his reply (who cares right?) but this comment wasnt aimed at any mod in perticular. Just somehing that crossed my mind as i replyed to MatrixPC.

    Bad Day? - Nah
    Bad Searchs - Probly

    If you made a mistake, then PM a moderator to let them know so it can be removed.
    You can also delete the text from the post and when a moderator reads it, the thread will get deleted.

    If it was a mistake, I apologize. There's been a ration of crap happening on the forums lately, so the mods are a little grumpy and on edge.
    Please understanf that we have no way of knowing it was a mistake unless you tell us you made a mistake.

    Speak on, brother.

    Maybe I should start giving Mods the benefit of the doubt, cause I was expecting some sort of aggressive reply that would have lead to an all-out text beef… hahahahaha

    But seriously it was an honest mistake tho
