Boosting Wireless Network Signals
*Sorry if this was already answered, i didn't see it anywhere though*
Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 With an Intel Celeron 2.60Ghz CPU, 256Mb Ram, Built in Wireless Internet Card (Dell Wireless WLAN 1350 WLAN Mini-PCI Card) (Built into computer, not external), & a 40 GB hard drive.
My question is about wireless networking. At my work I really have nothing to do all day so I simply go on my laptop, doing school work, games, etcÖ But what I canít do is go on the internet. But if I step outside of the warehouse I am in currently, and walk about 10 feet closer to this hotel next to us I can get a very faint signal. If I park in their parking lot I can get a full signal, still on low, but it works.
So how can I get the wireless network signal from the hotel next to us ( about 200í+/-) to reach further? ?I donít want to go and buy one of them amplification units to make it stronger if I donít have toÖ Is there anything I could do to my laptop, some sort of external antenna or something along those lines to help it pick up further away signals?
Any configuration settings, tweaks, etc. that I could do?
Thank you very much for any and all help,
