Hi there, sub genius (wink). I modded my DWL-122 to have an N type connector so I can hook it up to some heavier-duty antennas. For your project, it depends on what kind of external antenna you want to add. If you want to add a standard AP type antenna (like you get on a linksys or whatever SOHO AP), I think rp-sma would be good (but double-check, I haven't done this one myself). If, instead, you want to hook up wardriving magnetic mount antennas, parabolic/yagi directionals, and/or large commercial grade omnis, you should install an N connector. If you want flexibility, you could install an rp-sma and use a pigtail with rp-sma and N connectors to connect to the more "hard-core" type antennas. Maybe a look at fab-corp.com would help you decide what you want to do... Good luck!

I'd like to add an external antenna jack to the DWL-122 USB wireless adapter. Does anyone know which jack I should add? I was thinking about female RP-SMA, would this be a good choice? I'm not too familiar with the various antenna connections.

Thanks in advance...
