A wireless adapter that uses a universal serial bus (USB) connection gives a business the flexibility to make any computer or laptop a part of the wireless network. A wireless USB network adapter relies on a limited amount of power when it is attached to a laptop or other device. This can sometimes restrict the range of the adapter. One way to extend the range is to change the antenna on the unit. A wireless USB network adapter uses some type of antenna to send and receive signals. This antenna can often be removed and replaced from the unit. The most common type of antenna on a wireless USB network adapter is an omnidirectional antenna that receives signals in all directions. A much stronger connection can be maintained across a longer distance with a directional antenna that focuses on signals coming from a specific location. These antennas are inexpensive and very effective in an office environment. Unfortunately, this will not work with a wireless USB network adapter that contains an integrated fractal antenna that cannot be replaced.
