Re: Reccomend an effective wireless modem router combo...
Since you're having this connection problem with the router that you're using, I will advise you to get a wireless N router from this manufacturer Dlink,Linksys,Netgear the wireless N router from them will definitely solve your connection problem...

The "Wireless / Advanced" configuration window contains a setting for transmit power. Be sure it is set to 100%.
Otherwise, your only options are to replace the antenna with a booster antenna, or to add a stronger wireless router as an access point to your current setup. Using a booster antenna requires the D-Link to have a removable antenna, which it may not have -- none of the documentation calls this out as a feature.
Keep in mind that if you are trying to use this router over excessive distances, boosting the router's own power will not necessarily improve your connection, because the broadcast power of the remote PCs is also a limiting factor.
Basically connect your modem to your router with the right cable connections.Then from the router you can customized your wireless connection name, encryption etc.Now from this router you can connect several pcs either by ethernet cable or via wireless if you can set it up.Now if you are trying to connect a few more pcs wired to the router and there is not enough space then cheapest thing is to get wireless pci card for the pcs(assuming they are desktops and not laptops).I hope I have answered your question here.
Yes the Router can be hooked to a high speed modem like DSL or Cable, that high speed connection would go from the modem to the "internet" port of the router. Now the router would need to be configured if you need wireless, and then a temporary connection to a tower or laptop would be needed.
You do not need 2 routers to connect to the internet infact you need only 1. having 2 conflicts with pcs and causing them not to work.
From the wall you have your cable fro your internet that plugs into your modem, from the modem it plugs into the router by ethernet cable to the uplink slot and then your computers connect to the router. Most routers can connect 4 computers at once. If running them all wirelessly just reboot them and they should connect automatically. If your wiring them plug them into the back by an ethernet cable in the slots 1 for the first PC, 2 for the second so on and so on. You may have to cold boot everything at first meaning shut down all the computers, unplug the router and modem. Then Plug in the modem let it boot up, plug in the router let it boot up then the pcs.
If you need more hook ups if 4 isnt enough yo uneed a switch or access point not another router.
Let me know If this helps and if I can help further.
run the telephone line from your modem into the wall jack. From the modem connect a network cable (cat5) into the back ( via the uplink port) of your linksys router . Your router can now route the IP from the modem.
Yes, I have pretty much the same setup at home. Wired desktop and wireless laptop. On the back of your wireless router, there should be 4 or 5 wired connections which you can use. You will only have to use the setup disk on one computer. Basically, the setup disk is for the router, not the computers, it simply guides you through the router configuration process. You can also do this manually, the manual for the router will give those instructions as well.
set the second router through the web menus to a different ip address, cant have 2 devices on the same (default) 192.168.0.1 address, try 192.168.0.2 (example only) to stop data collisions
connect by cable secondary router lan port 1 to the primary router lan port 4 (any lan port to any lan port),
drag secondary router upstairs on its cable and install it wherever you want
set two routers on different channels.
set all wep settings on both routers the same.
set all pcs to 'auto channel' select
wireless adaptors in pcs will then select strongest signal at any point and transmit thru that router
