It certainly is possible, as the WAP54g has detatchable antennas, but keep in mind that 2.4Ghz cables are both very expensive and very lossy, so you'll want the WAP54g to be as close to the external antenna as possible.

Typical outdoor installations have a weatherproof box mounted with the antenna, to keep the cable length to less than 12 inches. You have to run power and ethernet to the enclosure, but neither of those have loss issues over distances of less than 100M (roughly 300 feet)

Which router modem is best ?


Hello,

If you get a wireless-N router, and you have a wireless-N adapter on your computer, then it should work...depending on the physical environment and building type. If the building has steel-beam construction, or log walls for example, then this will inhibit the wireless signal drastically. Also, having a clear line of sight between the router and intended coverage area will help. Trees and tall brush can also kill the signal. Try to place the router closest to the area you want to cover, so the signal doesn't have to pass through several walls. Try placing it on a window ledge facing the area to be covered. If all else fails, there are high-powered N routers available, signal amplifiers and larger antennas for the router, and also consider mounting an antenna outside. Start with an N router and an N adapter for the computer first though as this is the least expensive solution, and may do the trick.

Hope this helps!

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!

My sat nav won't pick up any satelites


All GPS devices will need a clear view of the southern sky (in the northern hemisphere anyway) to obtain a "fix" or "lock" to display the location on the map.

A fix can usually be had in under a minute or two. The first time "out of the box" however, may require additional time to display the proper location on the display or output. If the device has built-in batteries, bring the device outdoors to an open area (no tree cover, tall buildings, etc.) and allow up to 10 - 15 minutes for the initial fix. If there are no batteries in the unit, extend the cord to allow the device to be outside the car - in a similar location described above (an open parking lot is very good), and allow 10 or 15 minutes to update the location.

GPS device require an open view to the satellites in the sky. Heavy tree cover, tall buildings, etc can cause significant problems for the GPS to obtain the info to determine its location. Some device provide a jack for connection of an external antenna input. These often have an amplifier built in, and can compensate for less than ideal conditions. Antennas with an amplifier built-in are called "active" antennas. Some vehicles may have a film on the windshield (usually a defroster) that can interfere with receiving the satellite signals. In this case, an external antenna would be a logical choice. When placed on the roof, or other location outside, it feeds the signals to the GPS in the car.

A low profile, active external GPS antenna. This will often outperform the one built-in to your GPS.

Weak signal recption


Since wireless networks use radio waves to transmit signals, it’s possible that typical household electronics-your microwave, cordless phone or even the baby monitor- can interfere with this signal. Make sure you move your wireless router away from those devices that use the same 2.4GHz frequency range.
Other causes of interference are brick and cinder block walls, metal doors, metal frames around windows and doors, and metal filing cabinets.
Take these simple steps to reduce wireless interference:
  1. Move the router further away from the interfering device or object.
  2. If there is interference with a phone, you can change the channel of the phone or the Router so they use different channels. If there is still too much interference, you may have to buy a different phone system, operating at either 900MHz or 5GHz.
  3. Place the wireless router in a central location of your house, such as a family room or office.
  4. Arrange the desktop or laptop’s wireless antenna so that it points toward the wireless router.
  5. Avoid placing the antenna close to an outside wall (unless outside is where you want to be). If you want to connect while you’re outside, place the router near a window.
  6. Place your Access Point as high as possible. If your network goes through multiple floors, try to place the Access Point on the upper floor

wireless has limited range and can be affected by walls, doors, glass. Some models of routers if they have removable antenna's can be replaced by highgain antenna's which can drastically improve your range.
