Hello everyone,here goes. I have w/less n/work setup at home(1 pc ,2 laptops )and it is all working fine at the moment.How can i increase /boost the signal to the l/tops as when the kids take them downstairs or into the loft the signal drops dramictally.The router is a Belkin2.4g - 802.11g and the cards are the same, all setup on b/band. Many thanks for your assistance.

Is it posible to locate the router in a more central position, higher would be good.

I think what Mikè meant was higher up in your house, say maybe the loft?

As long as they are not dropping connection I would not worry to much about it.

recap if she puts it in the attic will shinda not risk losing the connection altogether down stairs.

Hello there. well its been a while and I have had some answers to my dillema.I do appericate the help but as yet the sujjestions have not helped. Has anybody got any other suggestions please?

when you say the signal is poor, what do you mean? Even a 'poor' signal of 1Mbs is more than adequate. A 512kbs bb connection will download files at roughly 100kbs.
