Why would you need to "rig up antennas"?I need to buy new AirPort cards for my macs. Have to rig up antennas first though
As i have stated in other posts (which you may not have read), the MC Card connector for the eMac is broken. Plugging it into a AirPort Extreme would do no good. I either need to replace the MC Card connector or use a MC Card antenna. My FW800 MDD i ripped out the internal AirPort and Bluetooth a ntenna in favor of a custom setup. The MDDs internal antennas were only giving me a connection speed of 24Mbps. I bought a MC Card to RP-SMA adaptor (Which i have) but when my AirPort card died i used a PCI Card. Before the AirPort died I had a RP-SMA antenna hooked up by addinf a 3FT SMA extension to the end of the MC Card to SMA adaptor than I ran that extension out the back where the Modem port was and hooked up a regular RP-SMA antenna. This gave me a stronger and better signal.Why would you need to "rig up antennas"?
Any PowerMac, including the eMacs, came with an antenna, even if no Airport card has ever been installed. Just attach the antenna cable to the Airport card when you install it.
