    It also has this sick software that automatically detects and connects to the best network it can find for you.

    guys you are missing a great opportunity here... get an internal PCI card usually broadcast and recieve at the highest sensitivities.. I got a low profiel one from Belkin..
    Then add on an External Antenna:

    for like 6Db gain and I can listen to my home network 4-5 blocks away depending on humidity/weather Netstumbler NEVER goes completely While I'm anywhere around other people.

    What antenna do you use? I have never seen the connector like on my buffalo before... I thought they were like an f connector. Ive got a g54.

    Would be nice if it had:

    1.) Possibility for an external arial
    2.) Low power usage
    3.) Nice price

    1) Check
    2) AFAIK yes, so check
    3) Yes, at least according to folks here. Check
    4) You bet!
    5) Check
    6) Check

    1) Yes, MC plug. Check
    2) How low? Is 5W low?
    3) Well... Suits me, so check as well

    i use d-link. i've tried linksys, usrobotics, netgear. everything didn't give my enough range. i thought i needed an external antenna here in my house because reception was so poor. til i found d-link.

    but that's in my house though, i'm not sure about putting it in a car. as you can see in my sig i'm still putting everything together.

    but for home use, i use d-link. other wireless adapters couldn't give me any signal on my backyard.
