Another question on improving reception


"Remote-controlled rotating outdoor TV Antenna Frequency: 47-860MHz Gain: 20-28dB Output Impedance: 75Ohm Remote control distance: >6m"
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?

  1. Wifi (802.11x) runs in the 2.4GHz range. No antenna rated at 47-860MHz is going to be able to send or receive any wifi signal.
  2. 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!
  3. There might be some repeater or amplifier available on the market, but that is out of my knowledge range :)

    Might try some googling for something like that though for the long runs...
