    Just set up my Time Capsule in a new apartment. Internet is blazing fast in the same room as the time capsule, but can't seem to render Netflix/Hulu when I go to the bedroom 20 feet away. The internet in the bedroom is real slow and occasionally just drops off. Any advice for boosting the signal? I'd rather not spend $100 on an Airport Express, that's a last resort.

    (The slow internet in the bedroom has manifested on a Macbook, iPad, and iPhone).

    If you're in an apartment you might be overlapping channels with all of your neighbors. Or you might have thick or foil-backed walls. There's not much you can do aside from moving it or changing channels if you refuse to buy an extender (cheap routers usually have a bridge mode that turns them into repeaters).
