Have a look for directional antennas and see if you can locate the source of the BT hotspot. Then ensure the antenna is pointed appropriately towards the signal.
A separate antenna may allow you to place it outside but if you have a long coax lead then you will get losses in that and reduce any benefits. Using a long USB cable is preferable to keep the card close to the antenna with a short lead.
