    How good is your Wifi Antenna?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WD1V

    This is the Wifi antenna I have.
    I havent used it while driving yet, due due my damn POS lilliput TS going out, but was wondering if anyone is using it, does it work well?

    Also, what antenna are you using, and how are the results?

    I have that exact antenna. I cover a lot miles, don't drive slow and don't take it in at night. its still going strong. its never shifted while i've been driving and does a decent job of getting the signal outside the car. works nicely for war driving (is a little less conspicuous than the 7db version, but there really isn't much in it) as an added bunus it frequently out performs my housemates more expensive antenna (http://www.fab-corp.com/minimag.jpg

    I'm using a USB senao card at this very moment, picking up a singal from an AP over 100 yards away with a 53% link quality. It is made by http://www.engeniustech.com/ (will not load in mozilla firefox)

    I currently have a Netgear 802.11g PCI card in the pc in the rear hatch of my car and my signal strength isn't the best....

    If I got this antenna, should I see a major difference in reception even with the antenna mounted inside the car? (I dont want anything on the outside of the car)

    this antenna makes a workd of difference from the crappy one supplied with the card, i've had mine for 3 months now.
    I went from 1 AP at 20% to 4 AP from 30% - 50% i recommend it
