Indoors and outdoors are as they sound. Indoors mean inside your house and outdoors mean out in the open with almost no obstacles.

The difference in range is because indoors there are walls, furniture etc as obstacles and devices like microwave ovens, bluetooth and mobile phones which contribute a little to the interference.

Due to these things the signals indoors are weaker as compared to the areas where there were none of the above and you had your wireless router in an open field.
