Personally, I use an Avaya Wireless PC Card and find that my reception
is much better than using the integrated WiFi on my IBM Thinkpad
T-41. I am not real familiar with the PC model you mention but suspect
that you will find that a PC Card will work better. The Avaya Wireless
card I have also has a little jack on it which allows for attaching an
external antenna.

Hope this helps,
