Whatif, I can tell by the signal of Blizoo that you are never going to get internet access through it. You'd have to judge how close you are to the router for that hotspot. If you aren't far away (or another computer can get a good signal at the same distance), I'd suspect your wireless card or the antennas as the cause. It's possible the antenna's are disconnected from the wireless NIC on the laptop. But since it's new, I'd just return it.
