    Hi, a quick question about wireless networking.

    Ive gone hough ..pfft...about 10 routers in 2 years, they keep dying getting hot and unreliable.

    I have electrical heating panels in my ceilings (like a large metal mesh). Do you think this has anything to do with it? my macmini is directly above the router which has a large upgraded antennae pointing upwards and only gets 2 bars of signal. Id love to run a cable up, but cant because of the heating panels.

    what would you suggest i do to either get better signal or whatever?
    (i tried a wired ethernet through my home electrical circuit but it didnt work very well..SLOW).

    thanks in advance for any tips :eek:

    I'm confused. :confused:

    Why would your ceiling affect your router? ...Is your router in your ceiling?

    ...Or do you have a two story house?
