I don't know that much about Wi-Fi except it can get really complicating with the signal, but why would I because I do not have a laptop. My cousin has a Dell laptop and he lives in a community of rich people with mansions all around him. He is not rolling in dough though and only has dial-up. So I though, Hay, people all around him probably have Wi-Fi and he could leach off of them because he is on top of a hill and most of the land is open fields except for a couple of trees here and there. We don't even know if there is any so we might try to get the regular connection working first.

There is a place up the hill that he can connect to with the regular non Wi-Fi antena, but only when he is outside his house and up the road a little bit. So is their any little tricks to increasing the signal on the laptop (like some sort of antenna)? If we can't get it to work we might try the Wi-Fi. Also the router that we are trying to connect to is in a public place and we might be able to move it without getting in trouble.

Which is better? Wi-Fi seems to be a confusing signal that is just a pain in the [bleep].
