    Default Antennas

    I have an antenna that is a cross between:


    and



    They have ~20dbi gain. However they are designed for receiving 25-2000Mhz. Do you think it's likely to work well with wifi considering it's outside of the designed wavelength and wasn't designed for transmission.

    I guess ultimately i'll come down to just testing it.

    It probably won't work very well if at all.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    No. It may work, but it won't work well, and may potentially damage the WiFi equipment due to RF standing wave issues.
