Problem With Antenna Signal Strength


Recommended Posts

So this is my little dilemma. I just bought myself a nice new 24dbi grid antenna (http://www.data-alliance.net/-strse-171/Antenna-24dBi-Grid-Parabolic/Detail.bok) this was the closest one to my own i could find in english and i have it connected to a CM9 MiniPCI card, 802.11abg and the problem is im getting a weaker signal from that antenna than i get from my 8dbi D-Link antenna.

Im using a 2 meter low loss cable so i doubt that would weaken the signal as much as it does so im kind of lost to what could cause a problem like this so i turn to the people that know most about this stuff, the hacking community !

I would be very grateful for any help or suggestions you can give to what could be wrong with the signal and if you would need any more information just let me know and i will post it as soon as i can.

I don't know if this will make any improvements, but have you tried pointing the antenna at the direction of the access point, and does it increase the signal strength at all.

Edit: I found this article interesting, it may help you identify the root of your cause http://www.binarywolf.com/249/signal_strength.htm
