    Netgear Wireless Antenna Cables

    Hey,

    I'm using a Netgear Super G wireless adapter (PCI) in my carpc and it works very well...

    Except that the signal strength is typically a bit low. I checked with netgear; they want $24.99 for a 1.5m antenna cable. Anyone know where to get for betta price?

    What kind of coaxial connector are these type called?
    What type of coax?

    I don't have much hope of finding connectors/coax locally to make up my own cable...

    Make sure the cable conforms to RG174 specification. It will say on the sleeve

    No way to say for sure without seeing the connector, but my guess is that the antenna end will need a RP-SMA (reverse polarity SMA) connector. They are common in most smaller antennas. Be sure to check, though, it can also be regular SMA, TNC, RP-TNC, or N as well as being either male or female. Good source is http://www.wlanparts.com/ for parts and pictures.
