A single band solid micro-strip feed monopole antenna for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) application is presented. The proposed antenna design consists of a Y-shaped monopole antenna with the ring slot and a designed rectangular slot which surrounds the monopole antenna. The experimental result shows that the proposed single band antenna has a return loss of -22.147dB and band width is 1.2GHz which lies at a frequency range of about 5.0GHz to 6.2GHz tuned at a centre frequency of 5.8GHz, which can cover the WLAN-5.8GHz frequency band then, the related radiation patterns have been observed at 5.8GHz.
