I do not have a connection problem. My A500 connects to my hone wireless network fine and has no blind spots. My issue is using it at work. I work in a Courthouse that was wireless access points throughout the building. My problem is the nearest to my desk is about 70 feet away with 3 offices, 2 courtrooms and an elevator shaft in between. Occasionally, I get a weak connection which I seem to lose just as Im going to open my email. I was looking at a High gain USB wireless adapter. My questions, will the Acer A500 accept it and will it work? Has anyone tried? The ones Im looking at have hundreds of positive reviews but not one mentions tablets.
