well i build this computer for my parents but its extremely far from the router and there complaining about no connectivity.

also i have a friend and other ppl with the same problem.

btw i tried getting a big antenna (9dbi) but it didnt help.
also tried the aluminum foil trick with the router. helps a lot but not stable.

willing to spend around $50 but not sure about everyone else.

whats a good adapter to get?

Coolwaters, you need to know if your router supports Wireless N before you buy a Wireless N device.

You can still use the Wireless N device, but you won't get the range/speed you are looking for.

What router do you have?

What router do they have? You could put DD-WRT on it and then boost the signal strength. My router was default to 70 mW of transmission power and with DD-WRT I can boost it all the way to 215 mW. I keep it at 150 mW and I can get a clear signal at almost full strength through all the walls in my apartment and my neighbor's apartment.
