Default Wireless Antenna

Hey guys,

I am n00b to anything wireless, but i understand the basics, I'm looking to buy an orinico card from borg, i wanted and external aerial cos i want to do a spot of wardriving every now and then.

I'd like to know what would be a good antenna to use, something mountable on my car? something that can clip on to the window perhaps? what about length and ranges?

Thanks in advance,

Get the seneo 200mw card, it craps all over the orinoco for recieve sensitivity, a much better card.

The budget is rather tight.. i don't really wanna spend almost $200 on a card.

I went today and brought a D-Link DWL-2000AP+ access point and a Belkin Wireless G Notebook Network Card - the belkin card just for been around home - got them all up and running which was piss easy.

Still looking for an antenna though...

An antenna for your car... Tricky dickies has a 7dBi antenna with a magnetic base that does the job nicely... if you want something more permanent though, borg has an antenna designed just for the task..

Those high power wireless adapters are fine, but you should also use the best possible antenna. You can buy some good ones out there, but if you can measure cut, and do some soldering, I offer the many long range wifi antennas at my website.
