External antenna with stronger front-to-back gain?

    Would like to improve distance reception without sacrificing side areas, too
    much. Is there a good high-gain antenna to be used with an AP that is "bi
    directional", more of a "figure-8" pattern, rather than having its maximum
    gain in just one direction?

    URLs where possible are appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Siemens SpeadStream flat panel seems to work equally well front and back
    sides here.
    Not a fantastic boost, but very definetaly noticable. Best dang little
    antenna I've tried (for $2 and change), although the only other antenna I've
    used has been hyperlinks magnetic base omni range extender, which doesnt do
    much except allows for better placement.
