PCMCIA Wireless card /w rfmon mode and external antenna

Does anyone have any suggestions? I would like a PCMCIA card with rfmon mode to use with wireshark and kismet. Does anyone have a favorite card for this application? I have an intel pro 2915 right now which works pretty well but I would like a second one so I can both browse the internet and be in monitor mode. The external antenna would be great as well.

On second though if anyone has a sony vaio VGN-S580P with the same wireless card and knows of an external antenna for that, that would also be great. I opened up the case and it has a connection for an external antenna. The connector is the weakest connector i have ever seen. Are they all like that?
