Default HSPA/EDGE low reception, in a full signal area. - 06-12-2010, 07:06 PM

I have a Dell Mini 1012 with an OEM factory installed AT&T card. I get little to no reception and very slow speeds mostly on EDGE with the Dell Mobile Broadband software. AT&T's software doesn't even reconize it as a valid device, which is fine with me because that allows for me to use the sim card from my Motorola phone which shows full signal stength.

Now here's the worst part. My HP Mini 110 with the Gobi worldwide card in GSM mode performs better than the Dell Mini 1012 with a native GSM only card. I get faster speeds on both edge and hspa respectively, as well as faster response time from the modem to turn on and activation

I am wondering if these reception issues stem from the antenna not being connected to the card. Please let me know if you think that's the case, and where I can find said antenna.
