Help please finding a WiFi router with external antenna input ???

Hello -

A friend needs a wireless router, 80211b or g would do just fine. But he wants to connect a cantenna or some other kind of external antenna up to it.

None of those that I've seen have an external antenna input on back.
Can anyone reccomend a good cheap router that has an input for an external antenna ?
Also would appreciate any feedback on using a cantenna and how well they really work.

thanks

Most router have removable screw off antennas. Linksys, D-Link.
NetGear and Belkin have some that are permanent and some that are removable

Buffalo routers, I believe, all have external antena ports.

Awesome!
I have an extra Linksys, i'll check to see if the antennas screw off.
And I'll also check out those Buffalo routers.

The newer Buffalos have the normal screw type antennas--the older (oval shaped) ones have a port for the much smaller antenna connector.

I've got a LinkSys W54C compact router with an internal antenna and a fold out connector for an external.

Very nice little router.
