hi. i just bought a notebook Dell 9100 with Dell 1350 wireless. My wireless base is located on the 2nd floor east side of the house and i have my wireless notebook located at the 1st floor west side, approximately 20-30 feet horizontal distance. my problem is, i have a very low signal (next to none) and when i try to connect to it by walking closer under the base station i get a good signal but walking towards the west side my signal drops. supposedly, i would have a greater coverage than what i am experiencing right now. is there a way to boost your wireless pickup signal aside from going near it? thanks a lot.
