Another question on improving reception Tags: Wireless Network Wireless Networking Last response: April 18, 2012 9:29 PM in Wireless Networking Share sjboyle March 29, 2012 6:25:46 PM Hello, "Remote-controlled rotating outdoor TV Antenna Frequency: 47-860MHz Gain: 20-28dB Output Impedance: 75Ohm Remote control distance: >6m" http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... I'm mounting this on my roof for the free digital TV in my area. What I'm wondering is if I can split the signal and tie it into my 802.11b/g/n USB Wireless Network Adapter to gain wireless reception. They are different connections but maybe there is an adapter. I researched this once awhile back but didnt find a definitive answer. Can this be done successfully?

No antenna rated at 47-860MHz is going to be able to send or receive any wifi signal. sjboyle April 18, 2012 8:52:05 PM This seems so obvious now that you mention it. I am humbled. One thing that I have had success with this antenna is this - If I put my wireless antenna down the middle of this array that is hooked up to nothing - I pick up much more. I took this a step further and ran about 30' of Outdoor WiFi Antenna Cable to the roof. This has actually made things worse - is there a lot of signal strength degradation with these long runs? Ways around this? Thank you! -Steven Can't find your answer ? Ask !
