Abstract: This paper illustrates the usage of G shape patch antenna in WLAN applications. Due to transformation of telecommunication industry and rapid increase in usage of WLAN dual band antennas are preferred. This antenna resonates at single frequency i.e. 2.45 GHz and operates on 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz. This proposed antenna can be used for WLAN application worldwide. Due to efficient bandwidth and very less VSWR this antenna is preferred over many microstrip patch antennas. VSWR for 2.4 and 5.2 GHz is is 1.2 and 1.5 dB and bandwidth for 2.4 and 5.2 GHz is 50 and 72 MHz. Fabricated antenna have VSWR of 1.24 and 1.49 dB at 2.4 and 5.2 GHZ which is in standard range.
