Need to Connect to Otdoor Ext. Antenna to myInternal Intel 5300 AGN, Vostro 1520, win 7

I would like to connect my laptop to an outdoor External WIFI Antenna.

My Intell 5300 AGN card is internal. 

I do not want to open my laptop and do any soldering.   I would add internal software or hardware if it helped.  I do not want to purchase a slot wifi card.

Do I need software?

Can I connect via USB, PCMCIA, or firewire or the "printer jack"?

I have Vostro 1520, with windows 7, Intel 5300 AGN, 2.4 Ghz.

Thank you

I have not purchased an Antenna yet, I have several in mind, I want to see if I can connect first without opening up and soldering.

Mike

there is no way to connect an external antenna to the card without special connectors which would require modding the the case to run the antenna out. And the 5300 is a three antenna card which takes advantage of the MIMO aspect of wifi.
