    Yes engenius is using RP-SMA and its small. Where are you planning to place the ant that you bought. If its an external one I think its not using SMA connector. It uses N-type coonector. Maybe you can take a picture of the ant connector.

    Thanks for the reply.

    This is the antenna i got:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...8225&rd=1&rd=1

    If the engenius is RP-SMA i'm pretty sure its going to work.

    I'm really not looking to mount the antenna outside. I think its ugly. I wonder how it'd do if i mount both the usb adapter and antenna inside the dashboard.

    btw, i just tested this antenna with my dlink pci wireless card and noticed that the signal strength of my connection did not increase much but what it did was pick up like 4 more APs around my area.

    Ya the engenius is RP_SMA. I tried placing the ant inside the car and I noticed that the signal is weaker.

    Hi,

    I also bought a rp-sma 9dbi omni rubber antenna from ebay. I noticed no difference in signal from the 2dbi antenna that came with the eub-362 ext and my new 9dbi antenna. I also noticed no difference in signal with the same 9dbi antenna on my buffalo whr-hp-g54 router. I do notice a improvement in signal with a cantenna on the buffalo router and no signal difference on the the engenius. Has anybody noticed any signal difference with the 9dbi antenna on the engenius eub-362?

    You guys know that you need a ground plane under these antennas, right? They need to be mounted ontop a flat piece of metal to work properly...likt the trunk of oyu car.

    Otherwise the signal will be worse.

    would a plate of metal with a wire attached to it and the body do the same job?

    i plan to mount mine inside. perhaps on the rear window.

    I believe so...as long as it's large enough. I don't think the metal plate needs to be wired to anything though. I would spend some time searching on the internet for antenna ground plane...or seomthing like that.

    I did notice a signal difference between stock ant and the 9dBi rubber duck ant. I am able to get stronger and more ap's with the 9dBi.

    Thanks, nemo1 for your reply.


    This antenna is a a rubber duck antenna. The seller on ebay calls the antenna 9dbi omni.

    I do not think that I would need a ground plane with this type of antenna? I notice no difference in signal with this antenna. If I place the antenna next to my ear and lightly shake the antenna it rattles like something is loose or broken inside the antenna. I was wondering if the antenna is broken. I wrote the seller on ebay twice and he will not reply to my emails. l will not buy from him again and I am ready to leave negative feedback.
