This cures it...
Cantenna = 39.99 bucks http://www.compgeeks.com/details.asp?invtid=SCB10
DWL-900AP as a client = under 40 bucks
I connect the ethernet to the DWL and it goes a long way.
I am using a Compaq Presario 3045US laptop. It has a built-in wifi antenna. I subscribe to a 802.11b ISP. Is there a way I can increase the range of my laptop's antenna?
Thanking all in anticiapation.
