Is there anyway I can extend the wireless range of my Netgear DG834g router?

I've a wireless dead spot in a 1st floor bedroom (even portable Tv reception is poor)The frustrating thing is that I've got good signal strenght up to the bedroom door and even up to the loft three floors up!

My network contains 2 PCs (1 wired and 1 Netgear WG121 adapter in loft)

2 Laptops ( 1 Centrino and 1 Orinoco nework card)

DG834g downstairs frontroom/office.

Tried the laptops and the adapter all with the same marginal results.

for wireless networks, although I have no personal experience of using it.

Called a Netgear ANT2405 802.11b/g it costs around £30, and is available from most good online retailers.

Try these powerline adaptors also from netgear, used these devices recently and they work great, simply plug them into the powerpoint and go. click here
the Ant2405 (above) doesn't seem to be compatable with your router though there may be others that are.
