antenna extension?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Gordon J. Rattray, Sep 8, 2005.

  1. Hi there,

    Since one of my computers is in an outbuilding about 100 yards away, often
    times it shows as a very low connection.

    The router is a DLink 524 and the pci internal card is a DWG 510 with the
    little antenna on the back.

    Is there an antenna extender available for this? So I can pick up a better
    signal...or could I just tape on some wire leading to a coat hangar outside
    the building?

    Thanks,

    Gordon
