A CPW fed T shaped slot antenna is proposed for modern wireless communication and worldwide interoperability applications. The proposed antenna simulated using mentor graphics IE3D.The maximum return loss of our antenna shows at 5.5 GHz. It shows maximum gain of 5dBi and designed using FR4 substrate. The dimensions of the rectangular antenna are 43 X 41 mm. The radiation pattern of our proposed system shows that bidirectional in E plane and omnidirectional in H plane.

Keywords: Coplanar waveguide; FR4 substrate; Wireless local area networks; IE3D Software.
