Default Replacing Attenna On Wireless Access Point

I have seen kits to locate the aerials on bits of cable to cover blind spots
etc... some WLAPs even support "Diversity mode" (both aerials) or you can
select which it uses... this is (AIUI) primarily to allow a single antenna
to be located away from the unit but the WLAP to be in an office somewhere.
(near the ethernet)

Does anyone know if its possible to replace an atenna on a wireless

point so it could be relocated outside?


The impedance and characteristics of the atenna is matched very closely
to the transmitter/receiver.


Adding a cable between the two will upset this
fine balance.


I would say it is unlikly to work unles you have access to
some very specialised test equipment to set it up.


The gear I helped set up last week to light up a business park was
freeely being plugged into several differnet styles and gains of
internal and external aerials with varying lengths of cable.

Software interrogation of the ethernet based wireless access points
seemed to be enough to establish signal strength amd error rates.

The harder part might be getting hold of teh kit you need in terms of
decent cable and plugs etc.


Wireless Anntennae, Connectors, cables, plugs, and sockets can be found on
the Lioncom site under wireless accessories.

Lioncom adsl 4 port router, Nildram adsl running on Redhat 7.3. You can

and hear me and my pal Joe Longthorne on uktalent.org.
