Abstract – “The next decade will be the Wireless Era.” – Intel Executive Sean Maloney. Today’s network especially LAN has drastically changed. People expect that they should not be bound to the network. In this scenario, Wireless (WLAN) offers tangible benefits over traditional wired networking. Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) is a generic term that refers to the IEEE 802.11 communications standard for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). The wireless network is formed by connecting all the wireless clients to the Access Point (AP). Single access point can support up to 30 users and can function within a range of 100 – 150 feet indoors and up to 300 feet outdoors. The AP has the traditional Omni directional antenna. The coverage area depends upon the location where the AP is being placed. Omni directional antenna can operate over narrow bandwidth and requires tuning and phasing. Therefore by using Bi-quad antenna with parabolic reflector we can increase the coverage area of the access point. Thus the aim of this project is to increase the coverage area of an AP by replacing the traditional Omni directional antenna with Bi- aim quad antenna with parabolic reflector.
