I haven't used one, but it looks pretty straightforward. The only
obvious detail is the need to buy the appropriate "pigtail". For a
(non-extreme) Airport card, I _think_ you want the Orinoco pigtail.
OK, there's another obvious detail. The pigtail is only 18 inches long,
and would need to connect to your Airport card (presumably threading the
wire through the laptop's PCMCIA slot). This would restrict where you
could put your laptop while remaining connected-- no more than 18 inches
from a plug inside your laptop to the antenna.
Longer pigtails are available, though-- at
<http://www.hyperlinktech.com/> they have a 1.5 meter pigtail for
$24.95. You might also want to check out their options for antennae-- I
got one from them that I plugged into my graphite Airport base station
that has worked really well.
