Orinoco cable connector

Postby bungopah » Thu Aug 29, 2002 2:17 pm

I bought this orinoco/avaya wireless to N Male and tried to find maching connector to it but unsucessfull. I went to local radio shack they dont really carry that many selection of connectors. Do u have any ideas where I can get them beside hyperlink technologies wensite since they charge too much for the shipping.

Radio Shack isn't the store it used to be 20 years ago :(

Are you sure that's not the plastic bag it came wrapped in?

thanks rogerrabbit,
that should solved my pc card connection problem.
I have another problem for the other antena connector that goes to the tincan. I bought orinoco/avaya N male cable from hyperlink technologies and bought the tincan connectors from radioshack and frys, they both have plastic caps which obstruct the male connector from my orinoco cable to be inserted to the connectors. I tried to pry this open also but it seemed to me the plastic holds both ends of the connector. Any ideas? where can I get this screw on type connector????

Sorry, but I can't visualise what you've got there. Perhaps someone else recognises what you're describing or else you could post pix?

(It sounds to me as if what you got from Frys/RatShack aren't N-connectors? Can you find their counterparts on http://www.fab-corp.com ?)

You don't need to pull the antenna off or anything. The typical Avaya/Orinoco/WaveLAN card just has a little round plug in the end of its built-in antenna. All you should have to do is pop that off. Just don't lose it, it'll pop right back in if you want to keep it.

well, thanks guys...I found it at hyperlinks technologies but it cost me like $8/each plus $5 on shipping they said they can sell cehaper in 15s yeah right. How come they are so expensive? Radio shack & Frys got almost similiar model but have plastic cap that cant be pryed off.

I tried RatShack and got fed up when all I found in the tiny box labled RF connectors was one or two N connectors that weren't even what I was looking for. Don't get confused with the N connectors that are for crimping on the end of wires, thats what I did and they aren't the right ones for building antennas. :(

EDIT: Of course NOW fab-corp has panel mount N connectors! Or maybe I didn't see them before? hmm....
