Wireless Antenna - a handy guide to plugs..

I love standards. We have so many of them.

Here's a handy guide to the 8 or so typically used connectors..

(It transpires that the back of the NetGear WAP54g wireless access point is an RP-TNC female, and the typical end of an antenna is an N-Type female. You can tell I'm breadcrumming this for later on, cant you?)
