Linksys has two devices that extend the wireless signal. High Gain Antenna Kit which has only a 7 dBi gain and is rated so-so by users. Another is a Linksys Wireless-G Range Espander, which is also rated so-so by users.
Environment: The Linksys wireless router is hard wired to a desktop computer and is located in a second floor room located at the North corner facing the street.
Listening Device: Using an HP Ipaq I am listening to internet streaming.
Signal Strength: I can get wireless signal to most places inside house. But when to oposite side of house or outside in yard, I get little to no signal.
Attempted Solution: Repositioned device on computer table and rotated antenna. No substantive affect.
Researched: Other manufacturers who sell high gain antennas. Here is where the water gets muddy, with very little info from users as to real success.
Question: Success stories, Please?
