    Okay... I have wireless internet and I was wondering if there is a way to make the signal stronger so that I will reach my upstairs computer. Also I need the signal to be stronger so I can get my wireless adaptor for my xbox 360 to work better.

    Is there a product that I can buy to make this happen???

    You could get a Range Extender.
    You could get another Router and set it up as an access point.
    You could buy a N router if you have a B/G.

    It doesn't matter, any computer that has a connection to the router, and is able to log onto the router from that computer.

    range extender

    Fireshot-
    How do you configure a range extender? I bought a linksys WRE54G and of course the disc doesn't work on Macs.

    You need the disk I think.

    For mine, I put in the disk into my desktop, and followed the instructions.
