Default PL connectors ??

Hi ,

I'am useing a PL connector for 2.4 Ghz network ( wireless ) , is this connector good ? I use it at the antenna ( on the roof ) and in my home ( the back of my computer ) a SMA connector . The cable is Belden H1000 , i will loose signal ? The network will still work for 1 km distance ? The antenna's are homemade BIQUAD's .

I saw lot's of antenna's with N connectors .. i use a PL one .. this is the problem ...

This is known as a PL259 connector. It doesn't perform too well at 2.4 GHz. It was designed for low band VHF frequencies and begins to have some serious impedance bumps above 150 MHz.
My choice would be a type "N" connector. They're good at 2.4 GHz.

Hope this has been helpful.
