New to wifi.....Making a WIFI biquad and hook up

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Jollyroger1965, Feb 7, 2008.

  1. I am wanting to try and make my own biquad wifi antenna. I kinda figured
    how to make it and how to hook the pig tail to antenna, also I also
    understand how to hook up to a 400 cable to and from antenna. What I
    dont understand, is how to connect the cable to the router i am looking
    at a WRT54G for my router. I read that a RP-TNC to N Male Pigtail is
    recomended for connection to the router, but I am presuming that I will
    eventually need to go into the WAN port...... any help would be
    appreciated. Also If making the biquad is a bit advanced what pre made
    antenna out there could be used?

    Do you mean 400 feet or a type 400 coax cable, i.e the Times
    Microwave LMR-400? 400 feet is WAY too long - LMR-400 almost
    7 dB loss per 100 feet which cancels out any antenna gain.
    Better phrased if it was the REQUIRED type of pigtail.
    You might have inadvertently mis-phrased your question.
    Are you asking if the pigtail plugs into one of the four
    WAN ports? No, the pigtail plugs into the right side antenna
    jack when viewed from the rear of the WRT54G.
