Hey hope I've posted this in the right section. I dont know much about laptops and dont know much about wireless, routers etc. My laptop brand new would pick the internet up outside in my garden, now sometimes it struggles to get a good connection just in my bedroom, normally get around 3 bars now but alot of disconnects, dads laptop is fine, so is the xbox so pretty sure router is fine, (I took my laptop to pc world few months ago because of a free check-up, told them the problem, it seemed to work a bit better once I got it back which took like 2 months. But now its just annoying as the problem has come back. So I was thinking of buying a new router to help boost the signal around the house, mostly for my laptop and Xbox. I currently have the virgin media router which is.... http://www.ebuyer.com/product/48546 and was considering buying... http://www.ebuyer.com/product/142702 I didn't no what a Wireless-N Router was till yesterday but I found out my laptop and xbox dont support -N only support G, But If its backwards compatible would it still give a stronger signal even on G mode ? My budget is around £40, Any help much appreciated I've also tried changing channels on my router and on channel 11 at moment which no one else is on which didn't seem to help at all. My laptop cant even find other people's networks, where as it use to... and my dads can find at least 8 or 9 other networks. Just another small question: Can anyone explain how you go about picking the correct router and how to tell distance, quality of the signal and router. Etc ? Also can a laptop wireless card be changed your self? My laptop is the Advent 5431 "http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/advent/laptop/5431.htm" I've seen people selling the network card on ebay which is strange, so could I just replace the network card with a better one from ebuyer. Sorry this question is so long and probably didn't make much sense. Thanks for any help in advance.
