    Netgear DG834G Router Replacement Antenna??
    The antenna on my Netgear DG834G V2 router has broken, on this version the antenna is removable by unscrewing it,, can anyone recommend a replacement, if that's possible?

    Thanks for those links, the router is downstairs in the kitchen and the PC is upstairs, but not above the kitchen lol When it worked, the PC picked up the router signal ok, despite its location.

    Which of these would you recommend?

    I would go for the 5db, higher gain such as 7 or 9 has longer range on the same floor but might not have enough coverage upstairs.

    the standard antenna is about 2db so even 5db is much better :)
