    is it possible to connect a high power WLAN USB adapter to a satelite dish?

    Yeap, all you really need is to place the dongle at the focal point of the dish. Or you could mod the USB dongle's antenna by soldering it into wires and then into the SNA or Coaxial connector of the dish.

    how would this be diffrent then useing a soup can for a homemade wifi antennae?what i mean is how would the shape/coating of the sattalite effect the direction of the wifi signal?

    Do you have anymore information for mods on the USB dongles antenna? Maybe what kind would be best suited on moding.

    Where do you plan to beam your wifi signal to? Measat 3 ?

    AFAIK, a satelite is supposed to beam signal in one direction

    so say the satalite was mounted on a omni-directinal tripod,that way you can point it in a certain direction right?would this signal go thru buildings or would they interfere?
