Well we've been having trouble with our router so we bought a new one. It has solved some of the problems. The connectivity is much better upstairs. The remaining problem is range. The house is concrete and the range sucks and our co-tenant cannot connect downstairs in her apt. She even bought the usb adapter that is supposed to increase the range on her end, but still nothing. She can sometimes pick it up while sitting out by the pool, which most of the time is pretty cool. But, in bad weather, or at night, and add in the mosquito problem, it's not really a good long term solution. So we need some advice on how to increase the range on the router. If any one has any suggestions let us know. We are just about ready to cut out the tin foil hat shown above for the router :) Here is a link to the directions for it.
