      Upgrading Sky Router antennas - worth it?

      Hi,

      I'm thinking of getting a couple of high-gain antenna to replace the two standard antenna on the back of my Sky Router.

      Has anyone done this, and if so, was there a noticeable improvement?

      Thanks,

      Tom

      I've read previously on this site that it's very effective to install a high-gain antenna.

      Netgear warn that using third party aerials invalidates their warranty and may damage the unit (Sky may take the same position).

      I've swapped the aerial on my PCI wireless adapter for one from a broken Linksys -- and it changed reception (and maybe improved it) with no damage so far.
