    Yes, and ironically, I just bought two from England, and they are suppose to be in my mail box right now. If you are interested in one, let me know. I will also extend the wires on the little board for the D-Link radio so you can hook it up to your car antenna. I was having a hard time finding one myself, but there was this cool a** guy here that could buy them in England where they are sold, but dont' deliver to the US. He bought two for me, had them sent to him, and then sent them to me. If you go on ebay, you will be paying $50, adn thats if you can find them on there and win the auction. Let me know. But yea, the D-Link is what you need, and it also works with all other front ends, and even with the radiator plugin so you can use some other plugins with it use it as your radio. I just hooked it up to my car antenna, and the reception is amazing. You won't be dissapointed. Plus, if you take it apart, its so small you can fit it into your computer box and hide it for good.

    Hi there, I'm also in Melbourne, Oz and trying to source one of these rarities. It'd be great if you can do a deal for two more, both sent to Melbourne.

    actually... i borrowed a laptop from work(since i take care of them i guess i get that liberty ) installed all the drivers and that fun stuff, brought it up in my car and pluged the antena DIRECTLY into the D-Link. i got decent reception. the problem i am having(steming back to the original problem) is that my radio antena is a single wire that looks like a coaxil cable with a RCA connector at the end. dont really want to cut that end off without a promis that i could sodder it to the dlink.

    but either way, thatnks for the info. i am now yet another step closer the CarPC. still in half planning/purchasing stage though

    If you say your car antenna has a RCA plug, then you can just plug it into the D-Link. Anything can be soldered, anything. All you have to do is cut the cable, split the two wires apart inside so you have room to solder to them, solder a wire to each part of the coax, and solder it to the plug on the D-Link. anything you do can be undone by just unsoldering it. You don't have to do any damage to solder some wires together, you can always unsolder them. Try it out, it can't hurt, unless you just don't really want to cut your coax cable. Another option, go to the plug for your antenna in the front of the car, and attach the wires to the antenna to that plug so you don't have to cut it. I dont' know if you can solder to it, but you can find a clip to use. The outside is grounded, I think, I will have to double check that, but I don't think that matters. Give it a try, it can't hurt.

    How much would it be for a D-link unit already modified to plug into my car antenna (standard motorolly style connection)? I am interested in this if you have been able to get good reception through the auto PC.
