    I'm not sure if it will survive hibernation, but I'm looking to go with this one: http://www.wlanparts.com/product/SUB-362EXT

    Darque bought it and said it works really well. he might know about hibernation thought.

    It's got hibernation issues.
    I haven't done it yet, but I'm going to try setting my DSATXC to leave power to the 5v. It's kinda tough when you're out of town, away fromt he truckPC.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    i have that one that RedGTiVR6 showed and it rocks it survives no problem and i get twice the amount of net works i get with my usb stick one. also i tried it with my modified external 7db gain antenna(in the fab section) I get twice as much ontop of that... i rock,lol kidding. but i do get a crap load of networks. the only problem is that it gets hot, 45-60*C at full power, but who cairs my buddy got two and it only cost me 50.

    i have pics of bolth here
