Cantenna Project

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am beginning my quest to extend the range of my wireless network. I have been browsing the internet looking for various reflector and cantenna/antenna ideas. Currently, I am planning on hooking up two homemade cantennas to the two antenna ports on my Linksys router.

I would also like to hook one up to my laptop and see how far I can go before loosing my connection. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a cheap wireless adapter for my laptop that has an external antenna port.

Anyways, I'll post pictures and news along the way with a "how to build a cantenna" guide. If anyone has any suggestions about what kind of antennas to build or links to good plans, please let me know.

And PLEASE let me know if you find a good laptop wireless adapter with an external antenna port! Thanks!

In side laptops there is a wireless card with tiny connectors . You can buy a "Pig Tail" on Ebay to connect from the card internal antenna port(IPX U.fl) to a standard RP-SMA Female connector to attach RP-SMA extention cable for your Cantenna . The extention cable has a threaded nut, and if you could find a 1.21"(Radiating Element)piece of tiny metal tubing to slip over the pin in the RP-SMA connector, it could be easily attached to a hole drilled in the can with the threaded nut . These parts are very resonable, and usually come from Hong Kong, so it will take 2 - 3 weeks .
