External Antenna

Can i add a USB Antenna to the WN3500RP to get even better reach? I am using it in my RV which is essentially a metal framed box that keeps campground wi-fi from getting to our devices inside. Would love to put a directional antenna on the roof mounted antenna mast so i could spin it toward the wi-fi source! Thanks for any help, could not find the answer elsewhere.

Re: External Antenna

Hi BobThomas,

The USB port of WN3000RP is intended only for USB hard disks for ReadyShare access. It will not work on your USB Antenna.

If you need directional antenna try to look at business access points that has reverse SMA antenna connectors for external antennas but still not USB.
