To my system, it's the difference between "low" and "very good" signal strength.

My laptop has "very good" signal until it cliffs at my router's radius. That must mean its a very good router/connection.

netgear wpn311, very good, basically its much better to get a PCI card as USB ones arnt as strong and powerful as a USB one is powered by the USB port, also you can experience lag and weaker signals

i might give that antenna a go
