Communication plays a very important role in today's world as the switching of communication systems from "Wired-to-wireless" has been very rapid. This paper presents the bandwidth enhancement of co-axial fed truncated microstrip antenna using dumbbell shaped Defected Ground Structure (DGS). The proposed antenna resonating at 5.4GHz finds application in wireless local area networks in wireless communication systems. To make the proposed antenna more efficient, the designed parameters of the antenna have been optimized and its characteristics are investigated using IE3D software.
