You forgot to link to your Yagi Antenna.

I found this one http://www.amazon.com/NextG-USB-Yagi-Range-antenna-2200mW/dp/B0044D7J1W/ref=sr_1_1

The reviews say it is mostly weatherproof, but suggests not leaving it out in the rain for extended periods of time because the USB connection is exposed.

Yes I did, sorry. I was going to link the same antenna.

The antenna I'll need will be outside for months at a time.

Found some here: http://www.l-com.com/wireless-antenna-24-ghz-12-dbi-radome-enclosed-high-gain-yagi-antenna

There are enclosed models for 9, 12 and 15 dBi

"This WiFi antenna is enclosed within a UV-stable, UL flame rated radome for all-weather operation."

I need the antenna to be USB connected.  Looks like all these are coax.  Will check their site out though.
1namylnAuthor Commented:
If I were to use one of those antennas I could use an internal PCIE card on a desktop and just plug it into one of the antenna post on the card?
1namylnAuthor Commented:
Specifically I just need a dumb antenna.  Not anything with a web interface.  Just something to greatly extend the range of my wireless card.
Amy WallerMarketing Operations ManagerCommented:
Sorry about the L-3, forgot to double check the connection.

Found a ton of different Yagi outdoor specific antennas, but they all are coax cables. A work around could be purchasing a coax/USB converter. Looks like the sum of both of those purchases (converter + outdoor w/ coax) are around the same price as the Yagi you linked to.

You cannot extend yout INTERNAL wireless card vai an USB antenna. The antenna needs to be directly connected to the wireless card. usually its done with coax, ive never seen other solutions than coax to connect wlan antennas.
Craig BeckCommented:
Andreas is right - you can't extend an antenna without coax.

You'd be better off finding a WLAN NIC with a RP-SMA connector on it and using a proper external WLAN antenna which can be installed outside.
