I have a Franklin CDU-680 wireless data card that I am trying to use with a Wilson dual band omni antenna. When I attach the antenna, it shows an improved signal strength on the data card connection manager. But when I try to download a page, it always fails - drops the signal or something - the signal strength goes way down and the download always fails.

with wilson antennas you don't have to need to run duals the proper way to adjust the SWR is to get an external meter like a trucker 2000 and a dummy load. you hook the dummy load to one antenna while working with the other and then switch the operation around. this way both antennas are matched seperatly yet work together.
cant fixed what?
If you means wireless connectivity I recommend you to use the Windows default to connect wireless,because we don't know the wireless configuration of your router or wireless signal provider.
let me know about that
No this is not typical if the Network card and router are just one room away. However electrical interference and walls do impede the signal.
Try moving the Router around to see if the signal improves. You can also adjust the antenna and pointing it in the direction of the Router. 1. Position your wireless router (or wireless access point) in a central location. 2. Move the router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects. (Such as Metal file cabinets) 3. Replace your router's antenna. Antennas supplied with your router are designed to be omni-directional, meaning they broadcast in all directions around the router. Upgrade to a hi-gain antenna that focuses the wireless signals only one direction. You can aim the signal in the direction you need most. 4. You can add wireless repeaters. (just the room next door this would be a last resort if all else fails) 5. Change your wireless channel. You may find one that will transmit a stronger signal. 6. Reduce wireless interference If you have cordless phones or other wireless electronics in your home, your computer might not be able to "hear" your router over the noise from the other devices.. To quite the noise, avoid wireless electronics that use the 2.4 GHz frequency. Instead, look for cordless phones that use the 5.8 Ghz or 900 MHz frequencies. 7. Update your firmware or your network adapter driver Source: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx Nice diagrams on this web page too.

Your antenna is probably still to long. You need to do a few things to see if your antenna is too long or too short. Here is a link to something I found that is very informative, and a post on how to do what you need to do. there is also a thread on the site that has common problems for high swr.
here is common problems for SWR http://cbmx.org/forum/showthread.php?t=46
I had this same problem with a motorola razr some time back. Some cell phones have a built in switch (such as the Razr) inside the external antenna connection. In the case with my razr, I
evidently pushed the adapter into the phone too far. I later had to jump out the switch inside the
phone to make it work with it's internal antenna again. Unfortunately, I could'nt use that same phone with my amp again. Just a thought on your problem.
