Essential Wi-Fi

Installing External Antennas… Correctly

We recently encountered a wireless network whose administrator had attempted some creative problem solving. Clients in an outlying building needed wireless connectivity. An access point was already installed in the main building, near to the outlying building. Wireless connectivity in the outlying building was sporadic—almost there, but not reliable enough for day-to-day work. The administrator addressed the issue by replacing one of the access point’s antennas with a single “high-gain” omnidirectional antenna (the antenna was actually 8 dBi).
