Also, feed cable length is important, shorter is better, and make sure
the cable and connectors are in excellent shape.  A lossy cable at these
freqs can lose you a lot.  Another thing, I don't see much about it with
regards to WiFi, but impedance matching your tx/rx to your antenna with
a VSWR meter is standard practice with RF stuff in general.  I don't
know why it is not written of more in WiFi stuff.
