i know this has been posted before but i didn't find much about the belkin 54g. i used to be able to get a signal in my car with the standard rubber duck arial and the doors open but obviously that's not great.. uploading to the carpc was fine but netstumbling was a definite no. i was thinking about buying a mag mount arial or making one out of a pringles can but finally decided i didn't have the money
so.. i ripped apart the standard arial and extended it up to the rear deck.. it looks great and works great aswell. i found 8 APs on a 1mile drive, 4 of which weren't WEP enabled!
so thanks to all you guys for providing some good information
