      HELP wireless advice needed

      I have Sky Broadband Netgear DG834GT which is fine and working well. When I am next to the PC I can connect wirelessly to laptop but signal constantly drops. My house is very big and old with big walls. I can connect in hallways but not in rooms. I am DESPERATE to get wirelessly connected elsewhere.

      Info for use:
      There is only one active phone socket which obviously the PC and Netgear are plugged into. All other rooms upstairs and downstairs have cordless phones.

      What can I do to increase signal? I can't move the router so what other alternatives are there?

      What about this - Play.com (UK) : Netgear WGXB102 Radio Access Point 802.11b, 802.11g, HomePlug 1.0 : PC - Free Delivery

      Please help as this is driving me nuts!

      Before you sepnd money, try raising the router above furniture and people height which may help reception -- as will placing the router by a window on the same side of the building as the computer you want to connect with.

      Also check for interference from cordless phone base, neighbouring wifi etc and change to a channel 6 stops away -- in fact play with different channels -- they represent slightly different wavelengths which may help.
