    image.jpg I moved mine using the omni directional and improved my range by tripling the distance. You need to go to at lest 5 dbi antenna gain or better. 8dbi is really good and not to squarely big. As you can see I used extenders an place my antenna in the sides of my sun screen to get the higher. Works really well. The 5.8 ghz antenna on the left and the 2.4 ghz for the wifi on the right.
