Any Idea why I can't get a strong signal on my linksys wireless router.

At the moment its only a few feet away but the signal it very weak.

Even if i put the router on top of the the PC I can only get about 80% signal.

Anybody any ideas?

Operating System & Linksys model would be good. Where is the router positioned? Is it near other electrical appliances such as a microwave or a digital phone receiver - I am told both can interfere.

Try checking that the aerial is secured properly. Also try right clicking the connection and selecting properties. On the support tab click the repair button. Assuming you have X of course.

HI, XP Pro and I think its WGT54 router.

Nothing really near, only a TV and thats turned off. I have wired also connected to the same router and thats fine.

The wireless works fine, Its just the the signal is low and its keeps dropping.

Is there any chance it could be a duffer?

Linksys routers are notorious for their not very good wireless signals.

Only way to prove it, is a replacement. Can you borrow from a mate ?
