    Proxim B/G Cards

    Here's a good indicator that at least 1 model does have the antenna jacks.

    A local kid here just bought one of those B/G cards with the specific intention to use it for wardriving.

    I Informed him that he made a mistake, as I was almost positive that the new orinoco cards did not have antenna connectors.

    Much to my / his surprise the card DOES have an antenna jack.
    (or at least 1 model of it does)

        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

        DUDE, answer your freakin PM's. I need to know which antenna I need to buy that wont be permantly attached to my card. you said they had a new antenna with a new plug.. but the website doesnt say anything about it.

        Link or model number please?
