Hooking up wireless patch antenna to router?
Posted on 2007-04-04
I have a weak wireless signal that I'm trying to improve by using an antenna. However, I'm not really sure as to what hookups to use from the antenna to the wireless devices. The antenna has a huge connector at the end (N-type I think) and then I have another length of cable that will hook up to that end and then give me a female end of a very small adaptor which is the same as I have on my wireless router. My question is, is it just a question of gettting another adaptor to join the two female ends, or is there something special I have to do to get the antenna hooked up and start using the signal with the wireless laptop or plug a cable into the router and use it with a PC?
Any help with the whole hookup would be great because I've never done one before.
