Low Signal Strength
i seem to be having problems with my signal strength on my router
the router is literally next to my laptop, (two weeks old) and the signal strength is only picked up as "good", and missing two bars.. originally this was "excellant" with all bars lit but dropped in a matter of days
i dont think this is a problem with my laptop as i can pick up at least four wifi signals with excellant strength so this rules out the card as being faulty
i suspect an incorrect setting on my router and a faulty router
would anyone be able to comment on this or perhaps someone else has experienced this and has the solution

Make sure you have no other electrical devices near the router - things like wireless phones/mice, speakers and monitors etc as they can cause interference which will affect your signal strength....Арте́льный горшо́к гу́ще кипи́т. (Moral: Working as a team produces better results!)

Slap me if this a silly question but what happens if you move further away? from my days of fixing tele's a few years ago there is a possiblity of too much signal, which can result in an overload of the input amp on the reciever this can actually cause a loss in signal. Only an idea but worth a try.

It might be worth checking to see if you are picking up someone elses network instead of your own. Do a network search to check availiable networks

you could also try changing the channel that your wireless router is set on, many routers are set to channel 6 by default,and while this channel doesn't overlap, it seems to be the most susceptible to interference from cordles phones and a/c adaptors
channels 1 and 11 are also non overlappers ( hey i created a new word ), but just playing around should help
BTW might be an idea to have a cable to hand in case one of the channels is so bad you can't get enough signal to connect and change
