Re: Internal Antennas

Depending on the age of the card and the style of internalness (aka mini-PCI vs motherboard), you might be able to get better results with a newer MiniPCI card, especially if the current one is 802.11b only.

The old pcbus and pcmcia cards were often extended with a soldering gun and a pringles can. I would hesitate to do this with

Not so much linux as linux related. Does anyone know of a clever way to extend the antenna of a wireless card, or in this case an internal wireless device in my laptop?

I've been working in the car a bit, and it only seems to get signal above the level of the windows, can I do the old 'solder a length of wire' to it trick to get better reception?
