    Hi,

    I would like to find out if it's possible to transmit a Wi-Fi signal (2.4GHz) using a GSM antenna (900MHz/1800MHz)?

    Of course it is possible.
    You could transmit a Wi-Fi signal on a metal bed spring mattress or a metal frying pan or a sewing needle but you should not expect maximum power transfer from the transmitter output stage to the antenna if it is not impedance matched.
