I've used a variety of USB wifi clients over the years with more or less success. I like the ability to move the card into a location for better reception.
I've seen "ethernet client devices" which come packaged with POE transformers and rj45 cable. Most of these are many many times the cost of the usb client devices. I have a 9db flat panel antenna I'm not using and am wondering if it's possible to purchase a very basic ethernet client device to go between the ethernet port on my computer and the flat panel antenna. I can make all the connections competently.
Most of the time I go searching for something like this over the internet I find packages mounted to panel antennas and bridges/routers that do many more things than I need it to do. I just want a simple client device, just like a usb "dongle" but with the option to attach it to 100ft of rj45 should I find it necessary. Isn't there some product out there similar to a pcmcia client card except that it is capable of receiving a poe ethernet cable and has and antenna jack?
