    WiFi Car Antenna

    I have seen similar post asking about Antenna's but have not been able to find what I am looking for. I want to find a USB WiFi 802.11b/g With an external antenna that can permanently be mounted to the exterior of my truck like a CB antenna. Possible with a fender mount. Has anyone seen anything like this? I want something that will have good range. In Portland we now have free WiFi city wide and I would like to be able to access it even if I get a little ways out of town.
    Thanks

    I use this antenna: http://wlanparts.com/product/MA24-7N
    It's awesome and looks a lot better than "rubber duck" styles, although there are some models that have more gain than mine.

    Even with my high-power aapter and 7dBi gain antenna, I still don't have much mroe than 1/2 mile range at best.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Thanatos.

    Edit:

    I think the OP is also looking for the adapter and no just the antenna.

    Well, that's also the same adapter I use, as well...
    It's all good.

    What's nice is that adapter can work with a variety of antennas, depending on what you're looking for in the way of reception.
