In this paper, a circular ultra wideband antenna is considered which comprises of a planar circular patch element on grounded FR4 substrate of 1.6 mm thickness generating the bandwidth of 6.8 GHz. To enable its extensive use in Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) applications, it is modified by modulating the microstrip line to generate stopband from 5.9 to 9 GHz rejecting the extended C band and X band. The antenna ground plane is then drilled to form holes implementing EBG structures to obtain desired passband characteristics, from 1.97 to 2.65 GHz and 3.12 to 5.86 GHz suitable for WLAN(2.40–2.484/5.150–5.350/5.725–5.825 GHz) applications. The designed antenna shows good passband and stopband characteristics and return loss S11 and nearly omni-directional field pattern over the frequency band of the passband.
