t-mobile dongle

Hi a while ago my dad got a new laptop under t-mobiles free laptop deal. the laptop i fantastic but the internet connection is fin, usually about 1.5mbps which i think acceptable for this type of connection via dongle. however the signal strength barely exceeds 24%.

Therefore the connection feels slow and at times will come up with the 'cannot find this site' page. it also tends to loose the coonection despite being connected in the web and walk manager.

Is there a way to boost the signal strength?

It all depends on where you are in relation to the transmission mast. Check the T-mobile coverage map for your area. I had no signal in a caravan at all until the dongle was put ouside the window. I then had four bars on the signal indicator. I even got 3.5mbps on the Norfolk coast recently. (with 3 mobile)
