Spelling: Pigtail



A short adaptor cable that connects from the small "non-standard"
socket on the end of a PCMCIAPARAMECIA, PECKISH, PUCKISH, PYGMIES, PAJAMA, PYJAMA, CAMACHO, PYGMY, PIGGISH, PIGMY'S, PYGMY'S, POCKMARK, PARKMAN, PAJAMAS, PYJAMAS, PAJAMA'S, PYJAMA'S [1] wireless card, ISA [2] or PCIPIC, CPI, CI, PI, PC, PSI, PCS, PEI, POI, SCI, MCI, XCI, PCB, PCP, PCT, PHI [3]
(internal) wireless card, access point [4], or other WLANLAN, ELAN, WAN, ALAN, KLAN, CLAN, FLAN, PLAN, WEAN [5] devices,
to a connector suitable for 2.4GHz-capable Coaxial Cable [6].

Depending on the style of pigtail you require to connect to your
wireless device, one end is normally an N-Connector [7], used to
connect either directly to your antenna, or to your feed line [8],
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 VaskosBasks, Casks, Asks, Cask's, Vases, Viscose, Viscous, Masks, Tasks, Vasts, Vasilis, Vase's, Wackos, Sask's, Mask's, Task's, Saks, Viscus, Skis, Sakes, Visages, Versos, Visors, Busks, Wasps, Vacs, Isak's, Saki's, Vasili's, Wesak's, Vacuous, Wackoes, Busk's, Maskers, Vassals, VAXes, Sacks, Visas, Vasquez, Zak's, Vac's, Vises, Wakes, Wases, Desks, Disks, Husks, Musks, Risks, Rusks, Ski's, Tusks, Vests, Walks, Wanks, Wasts, Whisks, Vasily's, Visa's, Sack's, Sago's, Sake's, Vassal's, Visage's, Vargas, Vick's, Virgos, Zack's, Sickos, Vagues, Vise's, Wackes, Wazoos, Fisk's, Vang's, Viki's, Wasp's, Desk's, Disk's, Dusk's, Husk's, Musk's, Risk's, Rusk's, Tusk's, Verso's, Vest's, Whiskys, Asoka's, Sky's, Osaka's, Vassar's, Vicki's, Vikki's, Vlasic's, Visor's [9].
