    USB Wi-Fi adapter with an external antenna connector?

    I have been googling for hours, and can not seem to find a USB WiFi adapter that has an external antenna connection. I want to mount a small antenna on the roof for better reception. What are people on here using?

    I'm considering the same thing...

    The ones that I came across (mind you, I don't have one yet) were:

    I use this one: http://www.wlanparts.com/product/EUB...EUB362EXT.html

    However, there is a newer model that also supports 802.11N: http://www.wlanparts.com/product/EUB...B9701EXT2.html
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Thanks for the options guys! I like that EUB-362, as I never really liked the USB stick ones. Adda nice 10db antenna to it, and I will be in business.

    Thanks again!

    I use it with a 7db antenna and get some pretty amazing range with it.

    I would second the ALFA products. I currently use the AWUS036H and I am more than pleased. I was originally going to mount an external antenna, but found that I get decent range with it being in my trunk.
