Just purchased a linksys WAP200 to link another friends house into our network club but after testing today the signal strength was poor and it's obviously because there's a house that's in between blocking the signal :)

If it was LOS it'd be excellent strength as the house is only 70m away so i'm assuming I need to mount the antennae high to go over the house???

I still need to jiggling positions to see if there's a better place but short of bulldozing my neighbours house are their antennae extensions I can obtain to mount it outside up very high?

Are you saying that you can make them or that I can get them made up somewhere? Would 2m be too long?

omni directional's arent very good you want a directional antenna.  Before shelling out some $$ for one perhaps try and convert your omni into a directional
