    I have a Merlin C201 data card for my laptop.
    Will a Sierra Wireless AirCard 550 get better reception with its antenna
    (or any other reason)?
    There's a place I go quite often that I get terrible signal with the Merlin
    card, I'm wondering if the 550 will do any better?

    TIA
    Brian

    I don't *know* this for sure, but have seen both a Merlin and the Sierra=20
    card when I worked in a SPCS call center. At that time, both cards=20
    seemed to get the same coverage at that location.

    Given the relatively large amount of electrical/electrnic activity going=20
    on right within a few centimeters of the card's antenna (internal or=20
    not), I suspect it won't make much of a difference.

    Just an update,
    I bought a Sierra Wireless AirCard 550 and went to the same place I was
    having problems with the Merlin card (my in-laws) and it, the 550, worked
    great!!
    Big difference over the Merlin.
    Good signal and speeds range from 53-90 kbps down.
