Ive never seen a Wireless card (for Laptops) that have a Physical Antenna on them. Your best bet for long range would be a wireless N, or N1 if Im not mistaken.

what exactly are you trying to accomplish? bigger poles doesn't necessarily increase range.

and this

with the RP-SMA male connection

just make sure you learn how the connection terminals work so you order the right stuff
for instance, with the RP (reverse polarity) plugs, the threaded, convex connector is the "female" one, and the and the concave connection is the male... with RP it flips and that confused me for like a week...

edit: i encourage you to utilize l-com (formerly hyperlink technologies). they're quite reputable.
