OK I just "hack fitted" a Linksys WRT54G wireless PCI card into my Dell Inspiron 8200 (its a broadcom mini-PCI inside which I installed into the dell by desoldering a few connections and fitting it in) and the drivers load up and everything seems to work flawlessly....except. I get absolute piss-poor reception. I have to be standing right ontop of the access point/router in order to get even just a halfway signal. Walk like 3 feet away and it goes to total crap. (its the Linksys 54g router with the 4-port wired switch) so my question is this: does anyone know how I can improve the reception on this thing? I had to hack the factory dell antenna to actually solder it to the card instead of using the mini-coax connection included.... but I doubt that has anything to do with it since I've read previous success stories doing the same thing. help please?
