Laptop Antenna Size?

Can anyone tell me the size/name of the antenna connector on laptop WiFi cards? I would like to connect a regular antenna to a laptop using some kind of converter if possible. Also, what is the standard connector called, since were on the topic?



Thanks!

Maybe this is the wrong place to ask. Can a Mod move this to the networking area or where else appropriate?

I sometimes have a situation where I need to boost the signal on my laptop but would like to simply connect the card to my 9dBi antenna.

You would be better off using a range extender (no wires or connections to worry about + they are pretty cheap)

Thats the problem though, I travel a lot so I often rely on Hotel internet. And of course the WiFi can't reach the whole building.
