Hi, is there a device that can be connected to the antenna connection so you can have two antennas (pointing in two directions) for a Wireless Access Point?

The antenna's are omnidirectional (It receives a signal from 360 degrees) which is why it should be as vertical as possible. Don't lay it on its side, i.e. horizontal. You don't need two of them.

Yes you can do it by using a microwave power splitter, they are a bit specilised and maybe costly, remember by splitting the power it will dived the power in half, but this can be combated using a high gain antennas.

If you want it to radiate in opposite directions it might be better to use a single antenna with a figure 8 polar diagram.

I'll have a search of my sources and see what I can find for you.

Hi, thanks for your replys very much.

What sort of range are you looking for in each direction?

to be honest, i was just playing around trying to get the signal as far as i could in all directions :p

Oh right, how does 3.7km omni direction range sound?
