Extending Reach Of USB Mini Wifi Card: Soldering?

I have a mini USB dongle with a decent chip for packet injection/monitor mode etc. I want to extend the reach of it. It does not have the embedded antenna to solder onto. Instead, it has a ceramic ‘chip’ antenna like this blue one seen here:

So I was wondering does anyone think directly soldering a wifi antenna scrapped from my array of old laptops would help extend the reach? Does anyone have any suggestions for this mini USB wifi card mods with ceramic chips?
Thanks in advance!

hi,

i dont know what exactly specs has this ceramic antenna, but it should be possible to gain up signal strenge with an iron and a new nice antenna. :wink:
