  • Netstumbling kit @ wireless central?

    Anyone buy this and does it work well? I have a toshiba internal mini pci card and the range is for s--t. Any worries about possible conflicts with installing a orinoco card?

    Thanks,

    Al (who's *real* new to wifi)

    We haven't heard any responses from people who have ordered from them. I am a fab-corp advocate, ask for the stumbler special ;)

    here are some comments from members on the ns boards who have experience ordering from there: Though the topic title is a little biased...

      I hope to get my setup this week, I'll run a full test on it. Out stumbling today and I was getting pings in the middle of no where, it'll be interesting to see who they were!

        How hard is it to hook an antenna to a ornico card?

          Not at all, the ORiNOCO silver/gold exposes an external jack for usage with an external antenna. Get a pigtail and you are all set :)

              Wardriving is not a crime if you ain't caught

              I'm not complete until I get my T-shirt.

                  Looks like "your mileage may vary" Checked out fab-corp but didn't see a "stumbler special" or was that a joke? I think I'll take the plunge at WC but I really wanted to get some feedback from someone who has used it. I'll wait a week or two.

                  It seems to me XP should set it up as a separate connection, but I'm still wondering about possible conflicts...

                    FAB-CORP, Stumbler Special, Borg Man

                    Question: What is The Stumbler Special?

                    Answer: as quoted below...

                    Stumbler Specials EXPAND!!!
                    Since the begining of NetStumbler, Fleeman Anderson & Bird Corp, aka FAB-CORP has been a part of this team by brining great deals for fellow stumblers.

                    We started the special with the Mini Mag and 19" pigtail for $85.00 in the US delivered.

                    A couple months ago we added the 60 inch pigtail to the deal at $17.00.

                    Now, we are expanding it again. Of course our old specials will stand as they always have.

                    The new specials are as follows:

                    The following connectors are now a flat $3.50 each.

                    N Female Panel Mounts
                    N Male for LMR-400
                    N Female for LMR-400
                    N Male for LMR-195
                    N Female for LMR-195

                    24 dBi Grid Pac Wireless antennas are now $65.00
                    19 dBi Panel Antenna is now $65.00

                    There is no current expiration on these - but they may go away if they don't take off.

                    The grid and the 19 panel will ship GROUND service unless specified otherwise, they are in large boxes, and will cost about $25 on the grid (due to its 25 X 25 X 7 size).

                    As always make sure you let us know when you order at http://www.fab-corp.com/ that you are a stumbler, and you want the items under the special. If you want something other than default shipping - be sure to let us know.

                    Questions, please ask.

                    Cheers,
                    Borg Man

                      alklloyd, Borg Man set up the "Stumbler Special" for those "in the know", not for everyone to claim they are a stumbler. So you need to put "Stumbler Special" if you are getting the Stumbler Special, or "I am a stumbler" if you just want to get the discounted prices... it is a public secret more than anything. :)

                        That would explain it...

                          I sorta wish the pigtail had some sort of quick disconnect in case it gets yanked, sort of like the gasoline hoses at self serve places. I find myself treating it like I am trying to peel a soft boiled egg and I'm all thumbs. :(

                            No doubt, I have heard some people go through a few pigtails a month... luckily I am super careful with mine, so careful it hurts.
