hallo

is it possible to connect an external antenna to a wlan cardbus adapter like AIR-CB21AG-E-K9 ?

The data-sheet reports "Antenna: Integrated dual-band 2.4/5-GHz, 1-dBi, effective-gain antenna on a two-


meter cable"

I don't see an antenna connector on the adapter and I don't find any antenna cable adapter to connect an antenna !!

Can you help me ?

best regards

What I have heard is that you would have to peel off the top "Sticker"..... you know the black thing that say's Cisco peel that off and it will expose the connector.

Wow, you're right.

I used this card for about 2 years and didn't know that, nice.

is there a conversion kit from cisco ?
