I have a toshiba mp50. The AP is a netgear Rangemax 4-port wifi. The problem is that the building has too many concrete sections, and there is only one area that has AP. Is there anything I can do to increase my laptop wifi or the AP signal. I prefer a low cost solution for the AP site, since its the company. I don't mind a mediocre solution for the Centrino laptop. Will a directional antenna a plate of aluminium foil work? Thanks

Does that accesspoint have any sort of an external antenna jack? If so you could purchase a higher db antenna and/or amplifier.

The AP is the new Netgear rangemax wifi with 4 ethernet port. Its just a machine, no antenna sticking from it.
