Probably not...... With an External Antenna, there is nothing to stop the signal, whereas with the Internal, the Signal has to penetrate the case, before it goes to wherever...... I suggest using the External for the extra distance.... With 2 way radio the clearer the area yo have the Antenna, the greater the distance.... same here.... just using different Frequencies.
The goal is to isolate the problem to either the environment, the computer hardware or the wireless router.
Location of the router versus the PC isn't critical unless you have lots of competing devices, wireless home phones, other wireless routers (apartment buildings always lots of them now) microwave ovens, etc. Walls, furniture, metal appliances, etc can also sometimes be a problem, Try moving the router closer to the PC to see if it helps.
If you have another router try it and see if the signal is stronger. If no, the problem could be in the PC. If you are using an internal wireless card (laptop) the PC might need to be elevated or an external antenna attached if one is available. Reseating the wireless card (or the internal antenna wire) inside the laptop might also help.
If you are using a usb wireless adapter try a 6 foot usb "extender" so the wireless adapter can be moved up to a higher location.
If you're tapping in to your neighbor's wifi, sorry, can't help you with that. Sorry if that offends you but you'd be surprised how many people ask for help with that but don't tell the truth about how they are connecting, and just lead the technician on a wild goose chase trying to solve non-existent problem!
No this is not typical if the Network card and router are just one room away. However electrical interference and walls do impede the signal.
Try moving the Router around to see if the signal improves. You can also adjust the antenna and pointing it in the direction of the Router. 1. Position your wireless router (or wireless access point) in a central location. 2. Move the router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects. (Such as Metal file cabinets) 3. Replace your router's antenna. Antennas supplied with your router are designed to be omni-directional, meaning they broadcast in all directions around the router. Upgrade to a hi-gain antenna that focuses the wireless signals only one direction. You can aim the signal in the direction you need most. 4. You can add wireless repeaters. (just the room next door this would be a last resort if all else fails) 5. Change your wireless channel. You may find one that will transmit a stronger signal. 6. Reduce wireless interference If you have cordless phones or other wireless electronics in your home, your computer might not be able to "hear" your router over the noise from the other devices.. To quite the noise, avoid wireless electronics that use the 2.4 GHz frequency. Instead, look for cordless phones that use the 5.8 Ghz or 900 MHz frequencies. 7. Update your firmware or your network adapter driver Source: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx Nice diagrams on this web page too.

I assume you have tried to retune the TV & angle the antenna in different positions. Very often, due to the location of your home & the strength of signal in that area, you usually find that , no matter what you try, an indoor antenna is just not strong enough to pick up in a weak reception area. The only alternative is to try & add a signal booster onto it or much better still ( and a lot less future reception problems) is to rig up an outdoor antenna.
your antenna can be seen at the bottom of the laptop. it looks like a battery of cellphone bit it has buttons for wire connections, actually it is called internal wireless card. there are many ways in boosting the wireless signal you can easily search how to boost wireless signal from youtube and you will see exaclty how it is done.
