Good Signal Strength - No Connection Outside Window

    I have a wireless setup in my office that works well. When I go
    outside and sit onthe patio, I can see the wireless network and the
    signal strength is excellent, but I can not connect. If I explicitly
    tell the adapted to connect (and enter my WEP key info), it puts up the
    usual "Connecting..." dialog for a minute or so. When the dialog goes
    away, I have no connection.

    It seems like the windows are blocking some vital part of the signal,
    so even though my card can see the signal, it can't connect. Has
    anyone else seen behavior like this?

    Connect to what? Are you sure you see the same router as in your office?
