I don't know about arm but I have here "LogiLink WL0054" which is
driven by if_run(4) and comes with an external antenna that's screwed
on, the connector looks smaller than what I see on

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMA_connector

but maybe there are adapters?  Even with just that screwed-on antenna
the range is definitely better than with other usb wifi dongles that
have their antenna built in...  And it works in hostap mode too,
tho I haven't tried 11n myself yet, only g.

 HTH, :)
