Actually, the standard Lucent card it has internally has an antenna
socket on it, and people have hooked up the ~$100 omnidirectional
antennas from Lucent into them.
I'm pretty sure that the internals of the Airport base station are
entirely out-sourced. I believe there is or will be a PC company
selling one (in a much blander, probably beige case). THe device also
uses an 80186 as a CPU.
