Today I had a chance to take the wardrivebox out on a trip and I noticed it did not find a lot of networks. On a trip which should give me 1500 or more networks it only saw about 200. So I tried the box at home, and noticed it sees fewer networks than expected, even my laptop wireless utility sees more. It seems the cable to the external antenna is broken, probably near the connector. Using another simple small omni antenna I once bought but never used gives me almost three times as much networks now. Maybe time to rethink the 'big' external antenna.
