Hi Colin,

    >What kind of distances are you trying to get?<

I only need the system to work over a distance of about 10 - 12 metres, straight lin and 3 walls.

    >You say <3mtrs is okay but not further. Are you going into another room etc?<

Yes, moved into another room, one wall away.

    >Try moving the Access Point, if it's in the middle of the room try moving it to a corner and see if it changes the profile of the coverage.<

Will do that.  Yesterday I tested the laptop/card combination on another wifi (CafeNet) and I picked up the signal loud and clear whilst sitting inside my car parked alongside the public access hotspot, which tends to point (again) to the router itself.

Cheers & thanks for your comments,
