    Default Omni-Directional Antenna....

    Hi Guys, I have a DWL G550 PCI WIRELESS CARD which works great but I wanted to get a more powerful antenna for it. I've searched around and only found 7db omni-directional antennas.

    I did find more powerful outdoor antennas but I am not sure if I can use it inside.

    Can anyone recommend a good omni directional anntena and also can I use outdoor antenna indoors?

    thank you!

    As with most things, if it works outside it will work inside, provided you do not live in a Faraday cage.

    Even if you did, it would still work inside, just very little signal would get outside. The one thing you have to watch for, is some antennas made for outside use are fairly high gain. Mix one of these with a high power radio and I wouldn't want to sit close to it.
    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

    What are you actually trying to achieve?

    Only if you feel that you don't need your testicles or your eyeballs.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Research the term "near field". You don't want to be in the near field of a microwave transmitter, which is they type of Radio Frequency radiation used in wireless.
