    Hi, as you may have guessed from the title, I'm trying to make an omni antenna. I'm following this tutorial, but since I'm a stupid newbie and all, I'm a little confused on how to connect it to a router. I've made the antenna, it's just the connection I'm having trouble with. Could someone be so kind as to describe the process and equipment needed to connect the antenna to a router or wireless card? Thanks you.

    You should get a card or router that has a jack to connect an external antenna. Not all cards/routers have jacks for antennas.

    Okay, thanks.. but the antenna, how do I connect it? I'm not too sure what a flylead is? Do I just get an extra length of the same cable and connect one end of the N connecter to it and the other end to the wireless accessory?
