Can network cards be added to improve signal reception?

Your machine already has a wireless care as shown on its specs:

You may only need a better antenna such as

Thank you for your prompt answer. Where would I put this extra antenna? Does it fit somewhere inside the computer box or on the outside somewhere? If I have to open the box, will that void the warranty?

Hi,

 

  1. Where: Please select one and check its installation guide. Most likely the antenna itself is out side but there is a cable to connect to the card inside.
  2. Warranty: This is a grey area because we can't define where the warranty stops. All I can say, please be careful when touching to computer parts inside a computer even power off. I always use Anti static wrist strap to work with computers.

Regards.
