I've looked around and can't seem to find a clear answer for this one. I have no problems with my wireless router (Netgear DG834G), but I'd just like to increase the range a bit and improve the signal strength (and hopefully bandwidth) for the applications I currently use it for.
I figured the best and simplest way to do this was to get a better antenna. I've looked around, and found that for a reasonable cost, the Netgear ANT2405 looks like a decent omnidirectional antenna, giving a5 dBi gain. To get any higher, I'm then looking at spending upwards of £100 (~$160) - which is more expensive than the router and is likely overkill for my uses.
So, my question is simple; will the ANT2405 give an increase in range/signal strength that'll actually be noticable or significant? If anyone has any direct experience of this, that'd be cool. As would any alternative solutions/products anyone has any experience with - as long as they'll work with a DG834G router.
Much obliged all!G
