I have a high gain antenna that I would like to connect to the SB1/2/3. What kind of wireless connector is on the SB1/2/3? And, what are your recommendations for a cable? (manufacturer, web site, price, length, type, etc.)

Thanks.

You can only change the antennae on SB1 and SB2, as SB3 uses an internal antenna. The connector is the usual SMA (I think Reverse Polarity) connectors found on wireless routers etc.
You can get SMA pigtail extension cables from most manufacturers (Dlink, Buffalo etc) but bear in mind that the longer the cable run to your antenna the higher the gain *loss* will be!!
