Hiya. I came across this site recently and am wondering if anyone's done or planned the same thing I'm wanting to do...
I've got a new iBook G4, the 14" 1.2 Ghz version, with Airport Extreme card. The performance of the internal wifi antennae in the screen is definitely better than those built into any PCMCIA card I've used, but I want a connector for an external antenna.
I want to put an RP-SMA jack on the chassis somewhere and run a cable to it from the Airport Extreme card. When I'm not using an external antenna hooked up by a cable, I'll have a rubber ducky antenna screwed onto the connector. (Sadly, nobody seems to make rubber duck 2.4 gig antennae that go on *standard* connectors - only reverse pinned ones, like wireless APs use. I guess that makes sense, though...)
The only question is, where to put the connector? I'm thinking of taking it all apart and drilling out the Kensington lock slot... but I'm not sure if there's anything in there that would either block the space needed by the connector body, or block a cable from being routed from there to the Airport Extreme card. Has anyone taken one of these beauties apart yet?
