outside wireless antenna connection to linksys router

I have a grid 19dbi outside antenna with 400 cable with a rp-tnc to male connector on the end of the cable. I have wifi here but it is weak. I have a linksys WRT54GS router. How can I connect my outside antenna cable to the internet plug of my router? Then I think I can get a stronger signal.

Thanks in advance

Your post is unclear and poorly written. However a 20 foot cable is also unacceptable. You'll want to get that down to just a few feet. I do not offer to teach RF tech here but that's far too long and will create very odd issues.

The 400 20ft cable works very well when the wifi trans is fairly close
Its just that it is weak for my usb wireless adapter.

Then use some other client device.
