wifi mini pci

I have an Intel 2100ab (>11g) fitted and the signal strength is not that great where the machine is located.

Will an Intel 2200bg (>54g) increase signal strength or just speed.

The pc slot and onboard USB ports are busy so cannot fit any other form of wifi card.

Just speed. You need a better antenna for better signal.

Why not a mini USB hub?

Do you expect the signal strength to be poor where you are, or might it be something mechanical, like an antenna disconnected inside the laptop?

Is the router/WAP yours? Have you tried adding a simple reflector to it? That changed my preferred laptop location from marginal to solid, with no change in the laptop.

EZ-12, printed on photo paper for thick stock, with aluminum foil glued to the sail, provides a substantial boost in signal.

The netstumbler trace. Make the tabs longer than the template drawing, for easier assembly.
