Any tips to boost WiFi signal?

What are you using on the laptop to connect ? Built in , PCMCIA card , USB connector .....also , when you get , say , 2 bars that is only " seeing " the router , the overheads from encryption will decrease the strength of the connection to less still , hence the drop outs . An example of this was today when I delivered a laptop back to a neighbour , I was picking up my own network ( 2 bars ) that was across the road , through at least 5 walls , and at the bottom of their 50ft garden , tried to connect and it dropped immediately .
