Hi Jim,
Many have found that the position/location of your wireless adaptor can
significantly affect your signal strength and results. It might not be the
very cheapest option, but using an external unit like an access point may
give you more flexibility on positioning and re-positioning.

Good luck,
Kling

Hi Jim,

You should be able to install a wireless adaptor in your PC (I've
tested with a USB version here, and it worked great although the
wireless signal strength wasn't great.)

You'll need to set up the network to be "ad hoc" as opposed to
"infrastructure", but after that it should be able to connect just
fine.

All the best,

dean
