Netgear WG602 Antenna

We have a Netgear WG602 and wish to somehow get a better antenna to increase the range to the  bottom of the garden. Any ideas?

Your best bet is going to be purchasing another router and using it as a wireless bridge/repeater.

There's the documentation on setup. The only problem I see arrising it finding a power outlet in or near "the garden". If that's not a problem, then you have you're solution.

Right been able to find out a bit more.

I have a FWG114P router which has the wireless built in etc in the house.

In the shed I have a WG602 which I want to attach to the switch in the shed. I have set the mac addres son the wg602 under wireless repeater, but it doesn't seem to work properly, any ideas?

Firstly the netgear wireless routers do not support repeating or bridging only the access points.

The good news is that the wg602 can get over this if you have the rigth version
If you have a wg602 v3 (printed on label on bottom of device) update to latest firmware version
available from  netgear support site.
You get a feature called AP Client
details on http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d102956.asp
feature must be enabled on wg602

Hope this helps
