    and am thinking of buying:


    I want to improve the signal around my house, I cant support N but I think the TP-Link runs G mode aswell, also with 3x antennas, am I correct to say this would improve the signal alot?

    Thanks in advance.

    The reason behind wanting a new router, apart from boosting my wireless for my xbox etc... is that my laptop just keeps losing connection alot, I have changed channel but no help, also it cant even find other networks where as it use to... my dads laptop would find around 9-10 wireless networks, When I first got this laptop I could sit in my garden and have the wireless working, now just a bedroom across from where the router is I get around 2 bars.

    If I went downstairs... I could only wish to get a connection for this laptop, I took it to pcworld for them to check out the problem a few months ago which was free because of my insurance, and they said they couldn't see a problem as the wireless worked in there shop. I am stuck on what to do, I dont want to take it pcworld to see if my wireless card is damaged, because they would charge £100 something which is a £10 job just to check.

    I dont know much about laptops only pc's I tried to check inside my laptop.. but the screws are scratched, not sure why, maybe from my free check up which I mentioned.

    I am kind of puzzled on what to do, If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it alot, its driving me mad on what to do.

    Just to add even with speedtest.net I am getting 1mb/s download speed while my dads laptop next to mine is getting 16mb/s, my laptop never use to be like this :|
