Hi Ulf,

Your English is a lot better than my Deutsch!

I haven't actually taken an Airport card apart yet.  They are a bit 
more expensive than
the PCMCIA cards, so my method has been to use those and the ones I buy 
have an antenna connector
already.  Some cards and many access points have two antenna ports.  
They poll each for the S/N ratio and
use that to determine which one to use.  If the Airport card has 
another antenna port inside that could be reached
without mechanical interference, it would be ideal to connect it to the 
external antenna jack you propose.
