Subject :Seeking advice on a high gain antenna for WRT54GL / Target is 8km away.

Wizards,

I have a peek-a-boo view to a tower 8KM away.  I've been wrestling over what antenna to buy for use with my WRT54GL.  I'm worried about the distance.  I'm worried about the power output.  Do these little routers provide enough juice to drive a high gain antenna?

Thanks,

Dave R

Check with path planning software first. Antenna will not fix a bad path. A 24 dB grill dish antennas works reliably for me for over 10 miles.
