Hi,

I managed to be rather too rough with the antenna on my wireless SB1 and
broke it by screwing it in too hard.

I presume (hope?) it's a fairly generic part and that I can pick up
another one fairly easily.

Can someone provide me with the spec. for the connector or, beter still,
point me at a suitable replacement, preferably high gain?

Thanks,

R.

I found this page:

http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/Shop/ShopSearch.asp?ShopGroupID=3&CategoryID=32

In particular, this part:

Is this along the right lines?

Robin,

The connector is called "reverse polarity SMA". It is very common -
used on nearly all access points that have removable external antennas.
Any 2.4GHz antenna with this connector should work.
