    I want/need a directional antennae for my wireless router. I have one router
    that serves the sole purpose of allowing a connection from about 150 feet
    away across the parking lot. There is line of site, but with standard
    antennaes the reception is marginal. Does anyone know of a solid design or
    source for such a thing?

    You can make a simple antenna add on like below, and if it works,
    you can make it a little more heavy duty. You can also buy some
    commercial types.

    150 feet, line of site across a parking lot, window to window, might work
    with a simple reflector. One problem with shooting across a parking lot is
    that metal things tend to wander around in a parking lot. Some of them are
    large, and might block signals.

    easiest.

    For an add on antenna, it might be nice to know what kind of router you
    have. Some have removable antennas, some don't.
