Dell Inspiron 6000 not picking up wireless signal

\015 Two laptops, Dell Inspiron 6000 and Inspiron E1405.The E1405 picks up the signal in our house when the 6000 does not.Details: 6000 has Intel PRO/wireless 2200BG card E1405 has Dell Wireless 1500 DRAFT 802.11n WLAN cardRouter: ipTIME G504 in "office" (sandwich panel construction--Styrofoam between sheet metal sheathing)Laptops in "home"--steel container next door.Is the Intel card inherently weaker than the Dell 1500? This problem seems to be worse than usual (there are days when I have no problems with the 6000). Right now it's bad and the weather is clear but below freezing. Other times when I have problems are during stormy weather--that makes sense to me.Any ideas how to improve reception. Is it time to get a new wireless card?\015

Answers :

It is never a right time to get a new wireless card, unless you have absolute compatibility problems - which is reducing by-the-year, or you want further reach and faster connection .
\012 :
\012 in your case it may be solved tweaking firmwares on both ipTime G504 and/or Dell inspiron 6000 with Intel PRO/wireless 2200BG card : meaning even back-tracing to an earlier firmware if you have the latest on both .
There are lots of problems of using wireless LANs in metal buildings, especially if you are trying to go outside the building and into another building. What I have had to do where I work is put an external antenna on the wireless router and use that to transmit the signal beyond the metal shell of the building.

If that still does not yeild satisfactory results, you can set up another wireless router in the "home" location with an external antenna to act as a recieving point for the other router in the office ... essentially this is setting up a site to site network. With both routers working together you should resolve the wireless drop out issue.

Bestbuy also sells a Wireless Booster, this works the same way as I explained with using two routers however if you go that route be sure you have the option to either add an antenna or you can place it near a window (glass cuts down on your signal than steel).

If this fails look at replacing the wireless card; this setup will still provide benefical even if you need to replace the card as it will provide stronger signals in stormy weather as well.

My dell inspiron e1505 tells me that it cannot pick up wireless networks. My computer was picking up wireless earlier today in front half of house. we extended the signal via ethernet cord and plugged in an airport. the airport works for my husband's mac, but not for my computer - it just says it can't pick up wireless networks. I came back up to the front, nearest the router, and can connect to the internet, yet i get the same sign - it says "windows cannot configure this wireless connection.
