I've seen suggestions that polarization of signal is important too. All
stations should have the same, usually vertical, plus an adaptor behind a
metal case could be somewhat shielded.
1/4 wavelength for 2.4 GHz is about 32 mm. Shortish adaptors possibly OK, but
the nano ones might be less effective.
