Scott, I am missing a detachable dipole antenna for an AirLink wireless adapter. Do you know of a good place to get a replacement?

There are several types of connectors used for WiFi antennas. Once you know the type it should be easy to search for a compatible replacement. For example most PCI or PCIe WiFi adapters would use an antenna with an SMA connector. If you are sure that is what you have then you can find antennas with SMA connectors from many sources such as NewEgg. Scott.

Well, the wireless adapter in question is of the PCI variety.

That is why I called them out specifically. <g> Let me know which antenna you purchase and how well it works, Scott.
