      Extending wireless range with Sagem router

      Hi all. I'm looking to connect my gf's mum's PC to my wireless network (we live next door - don't ask), and the signal strength coming from the Sagem router is so weak that we can never connect to it - half the time I can't even see it. With no antenna I don't seem to have the option to simply replace it with a higher gain version. Is there anything I can do to extend the range of the wireless by another 10m or so, without spending a stupid amount of money on it?

      Thanks for any help you can give

      Put router and neighbour's computer near windows -- wireless signal travels better through air than brick.

      Alternatively try raising the router above furniture level and try changing channels (especially if you can detect other wifi networks).

      I haven't used one but I have read in PCW about wireless extenders, particularly the Hawking version, which seems to get good reviews. Would that solve your problem?

      Next door, I imagine this is joined property ? What sort of distance is the router away from the pc? How thick are the walls ?

      You could go ethernet that is the cheapest option
