Poor Wireless Reception for 8770w when lid closed

New EliteBook 8770w, with lid open it clocks (via 40-50MBPS, but closing the lid results in anything from 10MPBS to 28MBPS. 

The wireless interface still shows 4 of 5 bars with lid open, but speed test sucks. 

Closing lid gives 5 of 5 bars and 50 MBPS. 


I have dual (large) displays and cannot function properly with the lid open. 

This CANNOT be my problem alone. The prior DELL laptop worked solidly in the same environment, in the same location, lid open or closed. 


HP must have put part of the wireless antenna in the lid........
