Hi Community,
Recently I bought the ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter for my computer. My question is: will getting bigger/longer antennas boost the range of reception I will get and will getting a usb wireless adapter be better than an internal one?

Larger antennae are generally helpful in picking up wireless signals, but location and orientation of the antenna is also important. The USB adapters are so good and come in such a wide variety at good prices that I generally use them over internal cards on almost all builds now.
