Advice on increasing WIFI range
#1
Hi, I'm using my PBP to work remotely. I'd like to visit cafes in rather poorly developed countries and not have to worry too much about the wifi signal. 

I'm wondering if I can get a Mini U.FL PCI to RP-SMA cable, maybe bore a hole in the case to attach some kind of heavy-duty Wifi antenna directly to the existing wifi antenna ports. Would that help or would it be pointless as it wouldn't raise the voltage to the antenna? 

Would it then make more sense to get a long-range USB Wifi adapter?

could I even splice the RP-SMA cable into the existing antenna and use it, with the extra bulk of an external antenna, only when necessary?

Thanks!
