    I have a Linksys WRT 54g and my sister never gets a conenction in her room. It is always on low, or she will not have a connection at all. Her room isnt too far from teh router. IS there anything I can do to improve signal strength

    Try changing the channel it runs on.

    Move the router higher up and away from electronic devices.

    See if there are any 2.4GHz phones nearby or in the house stomping out the signal.
