What good is having a wireless system if you have to stay too close to an access point? There are two answers to this computer quandary. First is an antenna. Wireless routers with an external antenna can emit stronger signals to the receiving computers. The reason why they work better than internal antennas is they can be placed higher up. This makes transmitting stronger signals easier. Another way to create a stronger network is having a more powerful network adapter card. Simply put, more power equals a more powerful signal. Using both of these enhancements will offer you a very noticeable improvement to your wireless network.
