    I dont think they would say built in if you had to break out the iron. I mean I would hope so at least.

        A lot of the new cards have a connector under the plastic antenna blister, frequently the Hirose u.fl

        However, I'm not sure if there is one in the Proxim "business dork" orinoco card.

          Yes, the wardrivers know. I think Blackwave was keeping a list of orinoco clones at one time.

          Blackwave?

            Hmm, I think the list being referenced is this one:

              ok first of all, i OWN the proxim orinoco b/g gold card. IT STILL HAS THE ANTENNA JACK. here is the problem with this great card. They changed the connector port to another proprietary type. They sell the new one from hyperlinktech.com
              I found this out the hard way after i baught my card ($84) and then a pigtail for orinoco. well it arrived, and it seemed a little tough to pop on, but it did. now i cannot ever pull it off or i will rip out the internals to the card and the antenna connector. i called proxim to bitch, they could do nother nor does the 3 year warrenty cover this. they did send instructions for how to disassemble the card and remove the antenna conecter manually thus voiding all warrenties implied with the card period. so i sadi fuck you, ill just leave it plugged in permanently.
              im using it in conjuction with a 5dB gain omni-directional antenna that magmounts to the car. this thing has EXCELLENT range, and im looking into buying a bi=directional 800mW amp for it. increasing over all gains to around TX=17dB and RX=15dB

              but yea,. the proxim has the connecter

                    It also uses the Atheros chipset, so that means currently for Netstum .30 you have to use the NDIS.

                      Does the external antenna actually function while using g? or is it just for b communication?.... How do they get around the FCC with it otherwise? /me will have to start googling this card
                      if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

                          If I am not mistaken, and I rarely am ;) , then the FCC has no issue with 802.11g and external antennas. The FCC has issue with 802.11a and external antenna, and only then when UNII 1 is used. That is because it was mandated for indoor use only, whereas UNII2 and UNII3 can have external antennas. Most (actually I think all) 802.11a devices use a combination of UNII1 and UNII2 which means no external antenna connectors in the US. This doesn't apply to 802.11g because it operates on 2.4 ghz like 802.11b, as opposed to 5.0 ghz like 802.11a.
                          perl -e 'print pack(c5, (41*2), sqrt(7056), (unpack(c,H)-2), oct(115), 10)'

                            Doh! Thanks Chris... for some reason I've been under the impression that g makes use of UNII1 also to acheive 55mbps... maybe I just need to stop talking out my ass and start playing with some g gear :p

                              Haha...no..the UNII1, UNII2, and UNII3 is how they split the 5.0 ghz band.

                              On a side note, and not related to his topic (I will probably end up splitting my own reply into it's own thread, maybe I'll even post my email and IP :) ) I am planning to pick up a WRV54G this weekend: http://www.linksys.com/products/prod...id=35&prid=565

                              Has anyone played with this yet? I like the built in VPN capability and it's only about $50 more than the WRT54G. I would dig some feedback on it though if anyone has any experiences.
