How do I strengthen my wireless signal? I am using a Linksys router.

The easiest is to replace the small antenna with a higher gain one. You get some very effective 8+ db gain omni directional antennas for linksys on ebay, amazon etc.
If you are in one direction you can also use a Yagi antenna (Directional) with high gain (20+db gain)
Normally the problem is not just the router, but the connecting device as well.
Keeping in mind you have 2 way comms between 2 devices. The router and say a laptop. ideally you should upgrade both antennas. As the best antenna on an Linksys AP will not fix a weak laptop signal. (it will transmit better, and receive better, but the laptop should also transmit and receive better)
Hope it helps

I get bad reception with my TP-Link PCIe Wifi Card! What can i do?

Often times the antennae on these routers come loose. Ensure that the antennae are firmly plugged in.

Try also changing the channel. Routers have 11 to 13 possible channels and most default to 1 6 or 11. Try a different number to reduce interference.

Physical construction of your house can hinder wifi reception. This is often subjective and your best bet would be to move the router around the room or into a different room if possible.

The kindle's signal strength is not strong once I leave the room where the wireless router is. Shouldn't I be able to use this device in other rooms of my house?

Wireless reception can be negatively affected by a number of circumstances. I can give you a list of things to look out for but no definite solution without having more information about your wireless router, the set up of your house and other factors.
  • Place your wireless router in an elevated position and have the antenna stand upright. Keep it at distance from other machinery, metal decoration or containers filled with water. Metal scatters the radio signal of the router, water absorbs it, both is most unwanted.
  • Drywall (aka plasterboard or gypsum board) is used in house interior as wall covers. Despite its name, it contains plenty of chemically bound water. Therefore, drywall is notorious for blocking the WiFi radio waves. The same applies to armed concrete walls.
  • Some electrical appliances (e.g. many microwave ovens) knock out WiFi signals in their vicinity. The kitchen therefore is no good place for a router.
  • Modern wireless routers use MIMO antenna set-ups, greatly extending range and signal quality. If your router has one antenna only, consider exchanging it for a model with three or more antennas (Netgear RangeMax or Linksys SRX models, for example).
Please add a comment to this solution if you do not feel any of the above applies to you, give some more information and I'll try to fill you in more.

My Gateway NV78 looses the wirweless signal if the computer is more than 10 feet from the router. Three other computers can pick up the signal anywhere in the house. Any ideas?

Well the internal antennas in net books are not that universally functional,depending on strength of signal etc ,your brand of pc is not that hot either,I have known a netbook to function differently even frome different points in the same room.
one thing you can do is take your pc apart and solder in a reverse polarity sma connector ,then use a piece of the smallest co-ax you can find(rg 174) or try a military -spec rg 174 co-ax.The only problem then is soldering it to the internal co-ax linking your wi-fi card to the internal intenna,you might even find just cutting this very thin co-ax gives you a better pattern but if you do solder it in you can then link an external omni-directional antenna to your pc and this migh give you a connection just to the strongest signal and not sniff out irrelevant connections you cant connect to anyway---good luck!

External antenna support for Dlink 2730b.

You should be able to. Most Dlink wireless boxes use a RP-SMA (rp=reverse polarity) connector on the external antenna. So you make or buy a cable to go from the male RP-SMA on the box to whatever is on the antenna (female RP-SMA obviously if you use the same antenna).

If you are going to go to the trouble, I would suggest buying a better antenna also. A directional like the small parabolic dishes work well if getting the signal from once direction.

Compatibility with Sitecom wl 031

This 10dBi omni directional antenna enables you to very easily extend the range of your wireless network. By linking the Omni Antenna to your wireless router, you gain the benefits of an optimum wireless signal while minimising the number of ‘dead spots’ (points in your home where the signal is either weak or lost).
However it does not fit the following types of routers,modems and accespoints:
These antenne's will also fit other brands of wireless products that use an SMA connector
