    I just moved into a new apartment today. Of course, I checked to see if there were any open wireless networks before signing up for high speed internet access. :)

    There is one open linksys available, but I am having trouble with it. I get varying signal strengths between all and no bars. They vary as I sit at the table motionless with nothing moving around me. I get high speed streaming audio for a few minutes, then no internet at all for the next 5 minutes. I'm getting the two extremes!

    Any suggestions for improving my internet reception?

    Thanks! :D

    I'm not complaining :) Just curious if there was any way to help.

    I'm probably just going to buy internet anyway... always reliable and full speed :D But I would love to find a way to improve reception until its installed!

    Maybe try moving your laptop to somewhere the signal is strong...

    Well you'll have better reception when you have your own router.
