    My NIC is a Linksys WMP-54G

    The Antenna:
    Model # - Radiolabs Model: "2.4mobile-7"
    Frequency Range 2400 - 2500 MHz
    VSWR <1.5 @ 100MHz bandwidth
    Impedance 50 Ω
    Gain 7.8 dBi
    Polarization Vertical
    Max. Power input 50 Watts
    Ground Direct Ground (RF chassis ground with mag-mount)
    Connector type RPSMA, MC-Card, MMCX, RP-TNC, N-Female
    Dimensions 12" tall
    Weight 1.5 pounds
    Maximum wind velocity Will stay on metal roofed vehicle at any speed!

    It actually stays on the car at speeds > 90mph. If you brush against it's pretty easy to knock off, though. GREAT reception. I'm getting 5 bars now from my home router where before I was lucky to get 1.

    I use

    Model: EUB 362-Ext
    Price: $68 + Shipping from HauteSpot on eBay - Can probably be found cheaper but I had an eBay GC.
    FEATURES
    • Data Rates up to 108Mbps (in Super G mode) for maximum throughput
    • High Output Power up to 200mW (23dBm)
    • Support for External Antenna
    Link to PDF with the rest of the technical specs: http://pcomaha.com/EUB-362EXT.pdf

    This thing is absolutely amazing. I find more AP's than with any of my other wireless cards/antenna combos. The external antenna support is also a big plus as you can add a higher gain antenna and improve your range even more. I haven't had time to do any distance testing yet but intend to this weekend.
