    Modify the connection from the PC to a laptop by modifying either a wifi card, or a wifi usb device. When modifiing the PCMCIA Card, make sure that you have a slot for the card. Purchase a Laptop adapter cable WG LAO1 (MC card type). And with the USB Wifi device, remove the antenna, and connect directly to the cantenna. Enjoy.

      I have two commerical antennas gave to me from the computer repair store I use.
      They Don't give a brand but I thank they are TELEX
      the dish's are 27" in diameter and have a large feed hhorn 5" by 2.5" with E-connector's. The guy
      told me that would reach out to ten miles and would pick the signal off a cell tower whitch I odon't thank is possable with out a key.
      Anyway I am trying to come up with a system that
      will reach 4 miles with a few trees in the way.
      I also I have a boetie made from a Dish network,also
      a YAGI that will reach out to ten miles,with a UBS connector. What system should I use?
      I read where I should use a Engenius Eco 1650
      router between my antenna and computor, any help
      would sure be nice. Thanks Bob.-
