Bluetooth a Mile Away

Bluetooth a Mile Away

[Popular Science] With a simple mod, I can make a Bluetooth connection up to a mile away—about 4,950 feet farther than most. Bandwidth is’’t increased, so ’t’s not a Wi-Fi killer, but now I can connect to my Bluetooth devices from anywhere in the house or yard.

More information and pictures can be found up at

Speaking of replacing antennas - remember a few months ago when I was talking about replacing the antenna of my Netgear WGR614 router? I was finally able to track down a place to get the right connector (an U.FL to RP-SMA female bulkhead, bought from JEFATech) so I could add on a Netgear ANT-05 Omnidirectional and really boost the range of my 802.11g.

I'm planning on doing the upgrade in the next week or so, I'll post some pictures and instructions with the results.
