building antenna for WLAN
i'm just an average joe living here in Canada and to put my problem in a nutshell, i'm just a guy trying to get better WLAN reception. since I'm not willing to either open up and mod my router nor spending >$50 for a good external antenna for my desktop, i thought i'd construct my own WLAN antenna. so I did some online researching and 2 different designs striked me as very attractive
-- the DOUBLE biquad (a variation of your biquad http://martybugs.net/wireless/biquad/double.cgi) and the wokfi antenna (http://www.usbwifi.orconhosting.net.nz).
so like a naive child i thought... what if i combine the two different designs? i have a mesh wok-shaped thingy, 20 cm in diameter, (ripped from an old portable electric fan) and i was thinking maybe i could use the DOUBLE biquad as a feeder for it. annd since the cone is a mesh, maybe the radio signal from it's back won't be deflected, but rather go pass right through enabling the feeder to pick i up additionally. i will then have a bi-directional WLAN antenna. so, what do you guys think? will it work? any comments?
