    Wireless Network Antenna

    The HPNA (phoneline) router at my house FINALLY broke. So I went out and bought a D-link Super G router and some cards. The room with the cable modem is on the first floor at the far north. My room is on the second floor at the far south. With the standard antenna I got a 12-20% connection in the D-link utility which was equal to a very low in the standard windows connection icon. I was getting lots of disconnections. I went out and bought a Hawking Hi-gain antenna that is supposed to increase it from 2dB to 6dB. With this new antenna I get a 30-50% connection in the d-link utility and a low in windows. I was wondering if anyone knew of any antennas that were more powerful? This is ok But i'd still like to get a higher connection. Any ideas?

    You can make your own.
    You can even use a dish from a tv-system and get insane range.
    Search google..
