    I was in Las Vegas this week and there was a gentlman there that had a
    wireless card and an antena attached to the laptop.

    he told me that he was able to do 3000 feet on it.

    he told me i could do a search on the internet to buy one.

    I have however had little success in finding the card that he has.

    Does anyone here know what kind of card it was?

    I know it was a PCMCIA card, but it did not stick out of the slot with an
    antenna like the normal cards you buy. It had a small connector like the
    external antena connector on the oronical cards. but it also had a rubber
    antenna about 6 inchs long with a base that hooked to the side of his
    laptop.

    could somone help me out with this?

    thank you.

  2. With no local interference, it's possible at perhaps 1Mbit/sec.
    Translation. He didn't know the name of the card he was using.

    Duz this look familiar?

    My crystal ball crashed after the last firmware upgrade. I'm working
    on a warranty replacment. Meanwhile, no remote viewing, crystal
    gazing, or precognition. I could use my Ouija Board, but the
    character data rate is just too slow to be useful.
    I call such a card an "alligator". That's an animal with a big mouth
    and small ears. It transmits much farther than it can hear, and is
    therefore not much better than a jammer. If you're going to do
    3000ft, you might need a similar high power xmitter at the other end
    of the link.
