following on from my previous post, I bought the wlan grid antenna. Dissappointed. I've got it connected to my PCI wireless card and I can't pick up a damn thing with it. Even my little plastic usb stick picks up a couple of AP's but the grid - nothing. I've tried contacting the supplier but had no response yet. To those that may be using a grid antenna there was just one question I'd like to ask: what it the resistance across the terminals on your antenna cable? ie: if you connect an ohm meter to the cable pin and housing what reisistance do you get? On mine I get a short circuit, no resistance at all and I don't know whether this is correct or not. I may have a faulty antenna. I've got several other dinky wlan antennas and I tested all of them and they are all the exact opposite - maximum resistance, not the slightest hint of continuity. I need to work out if this grid antenna is faulty or not. Thanks for any feedback.
