What kind of router do you have? 802.11A and 802.11B routers are not meant to broadcast very far. I would recommend a Wireless G router at least if you want to be able to get some range. Linksys is a good brand, and so is netgear.

As you are able to go to internet from room 3 through the same cat5 cable then i dont think its a cable issue. Please check Storage device if there is any access permission/deny needs to be configured. If that doesnt help , you can try once by interchanging the cables between the one going to room2 and other one going to room3.
1. There is a configuration issue here. 2. Check the Ethernet cable in the WLAN port on the back of the router. 3. check the wireless setup *************************************************************** instruction: 1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox) 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop/desktop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly. 8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router 9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.
The issue here may not be the laptop but the router strength of it's wireless radio. Do you have another laptop or a freind who can come over and test his connection? The DV series laptops have pretty decent antennae and wireless cards. Try to update the drivers for the WLAN card, make sure the antennae leads have a good secure fit at the ends where they attach to the card. If the router is a couple to several years old, it may need the firmware updated.
OK try this go to that PC, go START>>RUN>>service.msc (enter) Now when services window comes up, scroll down to DHCP, set to OFF & Disable, reboot, now try again. Sometimes just a Turn it ALL OFF, and ON again and most often it will sort itself out., IF it was working OK prior. You could always run the "Connect to internet Wizard" again, and do that. Also go into router and ensure that DHCP, is set to ON in the Router. Sometimes, a simple re-setup will get it all working again too.
The WPA code is the password to access the router's network, so it can use your internet connection. As long as the Xbox has both the SSID and the WPA password, it can access the internet through the router.
The SSID ( Chris_PC_Network ) is mostly irrelevant to the network connection, and is purely aesthetical. Its only use is to help users distinguish between different networks (so you don't use a neighbor's network or vice versa).
you will have to access the router by the ip address.
(192.168.??.??)once you log in, user name blank and password admin. you will have to set up wireless security. there are several ways and each that is selected has a brief tutorial.
Sometimes, people who are gamers or use Ipods, leave the router unsecure but limit the wireless access by mac address or by ip address so only those wireless devices gain access.
