The short answer is, it's not detachable unless you crack open the router. If you're comfortable with soldering and electronics, you can try what this guy did. Check "John Woo Fan"'s comments at this link:

One of my friend in my neighborhood using netgear wifi router when i connect with that performance vise netgear seems 2 b better is thr any setting to enhance the performance .... we both r using airtel...


To enhance performance is to enhance signal strength which can be accomplished with a repeater or an ACCESS POINT router with detachable antenna.

THen you can connect an omnidirection or bidirectional antenna which will enhance the signal.

You can check TP-Link products. Their routers are with detachable antenna. They have a grid antenna which is like a bid dish for detecting signals.

God Bless You!

Hi, can i attach an external wireless antenna for NETGEAR WGR614v9 router??


Hi,

Please note that it is not possible to attach an external antenna to this router as it does not suppport detachable antenna. To extend the wireless range I would suggest you to upgrade your router with a powerful router say WNR2000 or WNR834Bv2

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

If I have helped you, please help me, and rate this suggestion the highest FixYa rating. If you cannot rate this post with the highest rating, then please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

HOW CAN I REPLACE THE ANTENNA ON THE NETGEAR WGR614v9 ROUTER, WITH A HIGH GAIN, OR A DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA. THE ROUTER IS WORKING FINE, I JUST WANT HIGHER SIGNAL STRENGTH WITH IN MY THREE STORY HOME. THANK...


VERY CAREFULLY!

If you've never heard of wireless access points, try this link http://www.tplink.com/products/product_spe.asp?id=201

Then Google PASSIVE POE.

You hve to run a cable and change out the antenna. Probably end up spending about $80.

Hi,

The antenna for the router WGR614 is not detachable. you can not dismantle it without breakng the antenna.

This is a SOHO product and does not support detachable antennas.

Rate it, If it helps.

Compatibility with Sitecom wl 031


This 10dBi omni directional antenna enables you to very easily extend the range of your wireless network. By linking the Omni Antenna to your wireless router, you gain the benefits of an optimum wireless signal while minimising the number of ‘dead spots’ (points in your home where the signal is either weak or lost).
However it does not fit the following types of routers,modems and accespoints:
WL-143
WL-122v2
WL-114/WL-517
WL-114v2
WL-108/WL109
WL-111
WL-106
WL-025
WL-018v2
These antenne's will also fit other brands of wireless products that use an SMA connector

How to improve on Wireless Range


Wireless and Antenna Terms Wireless routers, access points, and adapters send and receive radio wave signals through antennas. The antenna is hidden inside adapters, but on routers and access points there's a visible antenna. Radio waves can be focussed like a lightbulb. And like a light, some materials reduce or stop radio waves. While light focused from several lights is brighter and makes it easier to see, several antennas in the same area cause interference ? the radio signals will be muddy and confused. Your goals in optimizing power are: * Avoid obstacles. * Avoid interference. * Increase signal strength. Power affects how far an antenna radiates. * Use the equipment in places it's most powerful and most sensitive. Antennas don't radiate equally in every direction. Just as the base of a lightbulb blocks light, and just as a light can be focussed by a reflector, so an antenna signal may be blocked and focused. Since people cannot see radio waves, you'll rely on testing and trial-and-error to get an idea of where antennas "shine" most brightly. An adapter's antenna is important, but the most powerful and sensitive antennas are on routers, access points, and detachable external antennas. The focus of an antenna is either omni-directional antenna or directional. "Omnis" are used in most home products, they radiate horizontally all around, but are weaker upward or downward. When visible, these antennas are usually a rod a few inches long. A directional antenna radiates strongly in a limited direction. It is a flat panel or a dish. These are used for point-to-point transmissions (where two antennas are focused directly at each another). These need a line of sight between them, and preferably a large open space around the main beam. When you are near antennas you'll still get a signal, even if you are out of the direction of its strongest signals. But when further away, you have to be in the direction the beam is the most powerful and unobstructed to receive it. One final concept before you go to the above links is interference. Interference is a signal ? one you don't want ? at the same frequency as the one you're using. Interference comes from devices such as microwave ovens, cell phones, 2.4 GHz cordless phones, and copy machines. Interference is also caused when your own wireless signals are bounced off reflecting objects. Objects may partly or completely absorb signals, reflect them, bend them, or let them pass right through. Metal and water (including the water in people!) absorb or reflect signals. Air, wood, and glass tend to let signals pass with weakening. And when outdoors, plants and the weather may cause interference.
