I've just bought 2 Belkin wireless USB network adapters (F5D6050), and want to connect them over 110m (335ft) outdoors.
I intend to connect an external antenna to each one using co-axial cable, but dont know how. I opened one up, and saw two antenna cables going into each rubber antenna from the circuit board.
I simply want to run a cable to the roof and attach a small aerial on both houses. Belkin say that it achieves up to 1800ft line-of-site.
Does anyone know how i should go about it?, or do they know of any online tutorial somewhere on the net?
