I am wanting to extend my wireless network to another building approx. 50 yards away.  Can this Outdoor Omni-Directional Antenna be mounted outside and be plugged into an router with a removeable antenna and it work.  Or does this type of antenna need a more complicated setup like a point to point solution.

Two miles is a considerable distance and it may work if nothing was in between your two points AND IF the antenna was not an omni-directional type as you state.

What you really need is a high gain directional antenna such as the jpg shows.

Here's  a link to a company that sells a lot of antennas for wireless nets. They can put any type of connector needed to fit your bridge/access point. As long as the little rubber ducky antennas unscrew, you can add an external antenna. The pigtail you use to connect to the antenna should be high grade coax and should be as close to the AP/Bridge as possible. Long runs will diminish your signal and you will also loose signal for every connector. Shorter is better.
