You can try a couple of things...

  1. get an external antenna to boost signal strength
  2. ensure you are not sharing a channel with someon else causing interferance and degrading your signal. download NETSTUMBLER and scan for vacant channels.
  3. ensure cordless phones are not near router antenna as they often share similar frequencies causing interference
  4. move router if possible to get a "clearer" path - try to put it somewhere that reduces the number of walls etc between it and where you want to work on the laptop
BTW - I have an external antenna and I cover my 3600 sqft house easily

Yes, a wireless router should work fine.
You'll need a wireless-adapter (either internal PCI add-in card, or external USB stick) in your computer, if it does not have built-in wireless capability.

Need to set up a wireless connection


Do you have the CDs that came with the router and the adapter?  If you do, you can run the Router CD on your PC upstairs to configure the Router, and Run the adapter CD on the a610 to configure the adapter.If you don't have the CDs, I need the brand and model number of the wireless router, and the model number of the linksys adapter.  If you need help physically installing the card, let me know.

Wireless means you don't have to hook up to a network via a cable, but you do have to have a Wireless Router hooked up to the network to enable you to transmitt and receive a signal to your wireless products.

Yes, adding a repeater closer to the laptop will repeat or boost the signal so you get a better signal. You can also try replacing the standard antennas with better ones.
