    External usb antenna

    I have had my TF101 with dock for some time. Recently I moved into some dorms where my room receives poor wifi signal. I saw this video:

    n3 USB wireless Wi-Fi adapter PnP/compatible with Android tablet - YouTube

    Hopeful that this might work, I purchased and plugged it into the USB port on the side of the docking keyboard. Unfortunately, The external antenna did not improve the signal at all.
    Any one else use an external wifi antenna with success?
    I was thinking of purchasing a usb host adapter and try that? (like this one:Asus EP USB Erweiterung für EeePad TF101: Amazon.de: Computer & Zubehör)
    but, if it is a driver problem... would not really help.

    This is not going to be much help, but....I have a USB antenna, nowhere near as sophisticated as the one in the video. I had gotten it for an Asus Netbook so I could get a signal in my studio, which is a dozen or so yards from my house. It didn't seem to work at all for the TF, but as I said before, it was not as sophisticated as the one you're considering. Looking at the video, it does seem as it would work...but that's only a guess. I don't know the cost, but it might be worth the gamble!

    There's just no way that would work without driver support. Regardless of what the makers say about compatibility. Do the dorm rooms have ethernet? Can you just get your own wireless router and plug it in?

    Great idea, probably cost no more than the antenna on Youtube!

    My recommendation is to use a wifi repeater. One inexpensive option is to get an old Linksys WRT54G (version 4 or earlier) and flash dd-WRT on it.
