Will connecting a grounding rod to a pc frame enhance wifi signal reception  
strength on a typical usb radio? If so, should you ground the radio body or
the pc frame or both?

No.


2.4GHz is microwaves which does not require a grounded counterpoise
for propagation.  The length of the ground wire is also such that it
becomes an rf choke (inductor), making it useless for RF grounding.
