> -- you definitely want a omni-directional antenna so you discover wireless networks from all directions. Beware - lots of people sell (especially on auction sites) terrible wireless antennas that don't really get the stated signal strength gain. So stick with a branded antenna, I think mine is from HyperLink Technologies.

I too like the alfa.

Don't go above about 5db omni for wardriving, or you'll start squashing your vertical and miss things that are more than a foot or two above or below your antenna, not what you want at all.
