Ordering the right wifi connector

While searching for a replacement for my Atheros AR5212 based miniPCI card and at the same time searching for some pigtails for use with a DIY directional antenna I found myself in the usual mess of matching IEEE 802.11 cards and antennas with connectors and vice versa.

I stumbled across a German site which not only carries a lot of wifi related datasheets and tips also has an – incomplete, of course – list of cards and their connector types. It’s not much, but it might be enough to get you on the right track when ordering your next pigtail or antenna.
