I have a friend that has a couple to three year old Dell laptop, it seems to just love hooking up to any wireless signal it can find. It sees wireless at my house, and can attach to them, and my own laptop with a PCMCIA wireless card can't even see.
She just purchased a new DELL Vostro 1700 laptop and I think she got the Dell fancy get all wireless card, wireless N. She had talked to the Dell sales people and they suggested that card. But now we find that her old laptop is much better at picking up wireless than the new by a wide margin.
Question, any experience here regarding the best wireless card to get when purchaseing a Dell laptop? I'm looking at getting a new one in a couple months and am trying to find which one seems to work best with wireless and I'm finding a large variation in performance. BTW, her old runs XP, her new Vista Ultimate.
