Hi, I bought a used G5 without an airport card. I installed an airport extreme card, but my reception isn't that great. I then remembered that all G5's came with the t-antenna regardless of whether an airport card was installed or not. The seller could not find the antenna unfortunately. Does anyone have an extra they could send/sell me? I'm looking to stay away from ebay. Thanks.

um... it's built *into* the case... it wasn't external, what you might want to do is either adjust your base station (router) to where you get better reception, or... get an external antenae that goes into the base station that amplifies the wireless signal

It was *not* built into the case in the earlier G5 revisions.

They'll work if you cut out the 27 digit session ID... (wG78evx3I9LE33GBBIZ1hUSn95E)

I'd rather not increase the range of my router as that requires more money than I want to spend. I'm just looking for the simple T-antenna. I was hoping someone had one lying around they weren't using.
