Dell latitude d810 wireless not having good range

So Basically I have the dell d810 and the wireless on it is less than 20 ft and I cant figure out why.. My other dell laptop has perfect connection all the way down stairs and this d810 doesn't even get full connection from 10 feet away!!! I have tried to take out the wireless card and put it back in but that didn't work so I am just wandering if it is a driver issue or the wireless card is just screwed up.

  1. Recheck the antenna lead connections on the card. I'd wager that they aren't snapped on properly.

    I ask only because they are buggers to get back on correctly. They may look ok but be askew or not completely seated. The connectors should seat with a definite <snap> when properly positioned and pressed straight down. They should also stay in place when the wire is given a (very gentle) pull. You obviously have a signal problem and by your original post the only thing you did was remove the card, and I assume the antenna connections as well. Since that's the only thing you touched, that's where you have to look.
