Another question on improving reception

Hello,

"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!
    -Steven
  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...
