Here is a view of the D-Link DWL-120 USB client housing ready for outdoor use.

This is a view of the USB client ready to be mounted on the mast.

We mount the modified clients on the mast right next to the antenna, so as to obtain maximum EIRP. To do so, we used several cascaded USB repeater cables. Each cable acts as a single port USB hub, and its length is 5 meters. Up to 5 segments can be theoretically connected, residing in a total run of 25 meters. Nevertheless, up to 3 segments have been succesfully tested for our USB clients. Cable route was prepaired for outdoor using standard PVC tubes.
