I recently set up a netgear n-300 wireless router for a client.
They are using a laptop about 25ft from router.
The signal is rock solid.
Now, N band can be 2.4 or 5 gig in frequency.
If it is 2.4 it WILL be effected by :
1) microwave oven usage, yours of a neighbors
2) if there are mirrors/polish metal items in the room (they cause reflections)
Just for the point, what is your signal strength when it works?
This may be a stupid question, but...
If it is only 10 feet from router, why not hardwire it.(run a cable from router to pc/laptop/xbox/ps3
It will be faster, more secure and won't be effected by outside influences.
