    Exist? 802.11G USB Adapter with SMA connector.

    I know i've seen people modding numerous USB adapters to accomodate an Reverse-SMA connector. Are there any 802.11G USB adapters that come with a Reverse-SMA connector built-in.

    I've found:

    Buffallo Tech 54Mbps* Wireless USB Adapter has built-in RP-SMA connector. This is the only one I can find. Is it decent?

    Any others you guys can think of?

    Buffallo are a well respected company.

    Do you have a link to one? I might be in the market for one too.

    I'm using the Buffalo PCMCIA with this external antenna and it works great.

    That antenna is quite good, thats the one I use. Any reason why you need a usb unit?

    Thanks for the link!

    I don't necessarily want to run an external antenna and a usb unit would allow me to position it to a better reception location within the car. But I want the capability to do external antenna if necessary.

    Well, try the netgear G equivilant to the netgear MA101 (101 is b) it can be found at newegg. There is a mod you can do to it to add a connector if you wish, but I would recommend having an antenna anyway, my range and bandwidth increased a great deal.
