      I take it you have checked that nothing is near the router that can impact the wireless and also checked what channel the wireless is set to on the router itself?
      Try going to 192.168.0.1
      user name = admin
      password = sky
      Click Setup (top left of page) and look at what channel you are on and post back with the information.

      You would be better spending your money on homeplugsm much better than wireless especially if you want to get as high as the attic.

      You can get homeplugs with a wireless access point on it to allow you to use laptops in hard to reach wireless arears.
