I bought this pair of antennas and pigtails for $10: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DP64JRG Ordered Wednesday, received it Friday. This morning I Installed the threaded pieces, put both antennas on and immediately saw improvements on both wifi and controls. IN an open area I had both wifi and controls working to 1,000 to 1,200 feet away. That's not great, but better than before for almost nothing, and most importantly for $10 I'm now set to just purchase any threaded antennas I want to try. I'm sure I can get much better range with special antennae.
