Dlink WiFi adapter antenna problem


Hello everyone, I am trying to build myself a helical style antenna and connect it to a wireless adapter. My wireless adapter is a Dlink DWA-123. Now I have taken it apart but I can't figure out which part of it is the internal antenna to which I will connect my home-build antenna. I have attached 2 pictures of each side of the PCB so I would like to ask, where should I connect my antenna cable?

Front side PCB
Back side PCB

Note: I think it might be the holes in the upper right of the first photo but I can't figure out where to connect the ground and the core wire.

Problem solved; most likely I can't and I have to use a wifi adapter with an antenna port.

You have to get the cable that adapts from that connection to a proper end. This is the cable you need. http://www.amazon.com/Mini-Antenna-R...i+pci-e+to+sma

Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
