There are many different (possibly fun) ways to boost your routers signals. You can purchase better antennas (If you can disconnect your OEM ones, but those can be over priced). You can upgrade the firmware of your router (requires very good technical skill to properly and safely do that), then tweak those router settings then. You can make you own antennas. ( that requires some radio engineering skills to properly do). You can install an amplifier between the router and antennas (can be expensive). or any combination of the above, but be wary of FCC rules with any modification of RF equipment (don't make the signal too powerful, or cause interference to others in your area). :D

One more viable way is to use a repeater in another area of your home to repeat your routers signal where needed (repeaters are hard to find, can be expensive as well).

You need to buy a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander to boost the signal
  • Move your wireless router to a central location in your network, keeping in mind that the router should be at waist level at the very least, not on the ground.

  • Plug in the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander in the room where your wireless router is. You'll move the range expander later, but for setup purposes, it should be in the same location as your wireless router.
  • Press the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander's "Auto Configuration" button for five seconds, which will allow the range expander to detect your wireless network and configure itself with the appropriate settings.
  • Unplug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander and relocate it to a location closer to the Xbox 360.
  • Ensure that the antenna for the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander is pointing upward, and keep in mind that the higher the range expander is placed, the better performance you will get out of it.
  • Plug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander back in, and your wireless network should have a much greater range, ensuring that your Xbox 360 is able to maintain a good connection to the network.

    The possible cause is the router is not able to extend the signal to that range. Try using a range extender to boost your wireless signal. Signal strength depends on the router. So adding a range extender should solve this issue

    I have a HPPavillion laptop with built in wireless. Is there anything I can buy to strenghten my signal to a wireless router.


    No , thers nothing to boost the PC unless you go with a wireless N card, BUT, there IS equiptment for boosting the signal from your router and it will depend on which router you have.
    Since you didnt post the make and madel of your laptop or router , this is just going to be a general fix.
    Go to Yahoo, google, ETC. Search for "xxxxxx wireless signal booster ". xxxxxx being the make of router you are using now.
    For example, i searched linksysy and found one for linksys: http://www.bizrate.com/networkingproducts/linksys-wireless-g-range-expander-router-wireless-signal-booster--pid11678449/index__kw--wireless+g+booster__qcid--1402153.html
