WIFI Amplification.
#1
Taken from the SB THREAD HERE I posted:

Quote:Hi all,

I'm hoping one of you guys may be able to help me out a bit here. I'm looking for a High Powered Wireless N USB Adapter (RP SMA 4 Wifi Aerial) that i can fit on the outside of my house.
I made one myself a while back with a tin can, N-type connector, pigtail etc but it's a bit cumbersome and can be seen from my window Smile
I'm trying to find a powerful directional wifi antenna that's inconspicuous and which i can attach to my satellite dish bracket on my outside wall and just run a 3-4mtr pigtail from it, through my wall to my PC.
Any help would be appreciated and links to suppliers would be even better.

I've looked into some of the suggestions given on SB but thought i'd throw it over to you guys also while i sit here in my cave with too much time on my hands and an irresistable drive to "give it to the man".
I.e. broaden my abilities to snag WIFI.
inSSIDer is showing me 4 WIFI networks around me that are unsecured but just out of reach ("GHOSTS") and kaiser wants to crash the party.

Thanks in advance for all input Big Grin

Let the search begin!!!

I'm talking to you now KP through the generosity of yours and my friend (the only IP that folded and banned TPB)....... EIRCOM!!! Big Grin

Their network security around public facilities and their own offices is laughable.
But i love them Shy

I use EnGenius ECO1650 outdoor wireless access and bridge. (My model seems discontinued.) I also use the optional flat panel antenna. Power over Ethernet. Mine is B,G or both, but they make models with N. Works really well, I pick up 4x as many wireless routers. They cost about $100. External antenna cost me about $50. I'm using mine as a bridge tuned on to one signal that I pay for. It's about 3/8 mile away and partially blocked by buildings. I still get about 90-95% signal strength.
I also use EnGenius EUB9603H indoor N antenna. It picks up about 2.5-3x more routers. USB powered. About $35, I think.
I have been happy and had no problems with their products.

Have you pig tailed any of them directly to your PC?
I've modified a parabolic dish to snag the signals but they "twigged it" and they went dark for a week or so until i was asked to take it down by my landlord.
My apartment is directly facing Irelands largest (monopoly) IP.
Anything i use from here on in has to be small and discreet.

It's a game of cat and mouse i'm playing with them but it's lots of fun.
And the best bit is NOTHING i'm doing is illegal as it's WIFI DodgyCoolBig Grin

Ok, I understand, I think..., yes, my flat panel antenna is just like that, except without the can. The panel is about 10"x10". I have used it inside and it works well, especially near a window.

My setup is exactly like the one in this link. And it is a directional antenna.
