Please ensure you have your router communicating on a non congested wireless channel. You can go to the Google Play store and search for the Amped Wireless Wifi Analytics tool>download it>it will tell you the least congested channels to use as well as other tools.

You may also download the program called InSSIDer if you have a windows based laptop and it will also scan networks and provide the congestion data as well.

Then set your router to use a non-congested channel

replaced it with a d-link dir-655, wow I cant believe what a difference from my netgear 3300. with the dir-655 I can go anywhere in the house and get at lease 4 bars. if any one is looking for a good wireless router for a cheap price take a look at the dir-655.
