    PCMCIA to R-SMA Antenna?

    hi guys,
    ive done a search and cant seem to find any info on the above topic.
    basically ive just acquired a laptop and i want to get a pcmcia wireless card, the problem is i want to use my linksys R-SMA high gain antenna with it so that i get good signal.

    are there any for sale with sma connectors on them? ive had a google and looked at linksys, netgear, belkin etc, but all of them have built in antennas.

    so the question i suppose is how do you guys integrate external antennas? do you just take for example a linksys one apart and solder the external antenna on?

    any help would be great thanks guys.
    oh and it needs to be 54g by the way.

    This Buffalo card has an MC connector. Go here for an adapter.

    MC connectors break easily. I would never recommend those type of conectors. MMCX suck also.
