Pigtail

Pigtail

A short adaptor cable that connects from the small "non-standard" socket on the end of a PCMCIA wireless card, ISA or PCI (internal) wireless card, access point, or other WLAN devices, to a connector suitable for 2.4GHz-capable Coaxial Cable.

Depending on the style of pigtail you require to connect to your wireless device, one end is normally an N-Connector, used to connect either directly to your antenna, or to your feed line, while at the other end is the connector suitable for your wireless device.

Pigtails normally cost anywhere from $30-$60, depending on the quality and complexity of the pigtail. Excellent pigtails are offered by External linkVaskos.

What connector is used to connect to your wireless device normally only depends on the brand used. Here's a list of the commonly found pigtails, and what devices they relate to, although it is recommended you read your device's specifications carefully before purchasing one:
