    Consider a USB wireless adaptor,as numerous benefits arise, both for
    WiFi & Bluetooth-
    * CHEAP - some 802.11b dongles are now even free after rebate
    * Lossless cable ( since only digital signals on it not RF)
    * Dirt cheap standard USB cable & connections
    * Ease of placing adaptor in signal sweetspots
    * Ease of cable extension by at least 5m (15')
    * Ease of fitting completely unmodified USB adaptor at focal point of a
    parabolic reflector for 12-15dB system gain
