Velocity Cruz Micro , WIFI antennae help!!!!

Hello fellow Unix/Linux -android heads.

Recently got my Girlfriend a fancy-ass Christmas present, a Velocity Cruz Micro t410 10" screen Tablet.

The Wi-Fi Connectivity is OK ,but We would like to Extend the Range of it.

Any knowledge of a possible USB interfaced WI-fI antenna out there??

BTW ,the USB hookup on this 0verpriced Tablet is a Mini -type usb cable<but not a Digital Camera type mini socket-plug>.

adios, chili

Don't fart about with the wifi, even if you're an electronic engineer. If it's not able to reach your router, move the router, or get one of these dongles the mobile companies sell.

You can change wifi cards on some machines. The real test is to run yours beside hers and only do something if yours is much better (=hers is much worse).
