Rated 5 out of 5 by from Original wireless router on the ground floor, with a laptop in a room on the second floor which was only showing two bars and the connection kept dropping. Bought this and put it in a room on the first floor, now the laptop shows five bars (needless to say the connection doesn't drop). To place this in the best spot I installed a free piece of software called inSSIDer which lists all available wireless networks and their signal strengths (also useful to check others aren't on the same channel). With this software I was able to optimise the signal to within 10% - not something you can do just from the small bar display in the bottom right of the screen. Connect wirelessly or with the wire provided to a pc on your network and enter the network password required, then just plug it in in a suitable spot. It's that easy!
