    My laptop already has wifi built into it, but I need something that will boost my laptop's ability to pick up weaker wifi signals.....for example being able to pick up wifi from my hotel room when normally the wifi signal eminates from the first floor or concierge lounge of my hotel.

    It has to be small and portable to take on business trips, so no Cantenna. Does anyone know where I could get such a device (assuming it exists)? :x:

    built in antennas really screw any option of adding an external. We run into the same thing while wardriving with my buddies' Toshiba satellite laptop.

    Short of disabling the internal card and adding one, there really is no option we are familiar with.
