I got the WRTP54G for my Vonage service and ti works pretty well but the problem is that the device is in thelower level of my house and when i use my laptop to connect via wifi from upstairs (the room directly above where the wifi router is) i often get a unreliable signal that custs in and out going from a very good connect to weak to no signal and back to very good.

so is there some kind of device i can buy to extend the range of my wifif to get reliable signal upstairs?

an easier and free solution would be to get firmware such as dd-wrt or several others for the wrt. you can boost the signal output through the firmware. read a little about it first, but it's pretty easy and safe if you do it within limits. bumping it up a little made the wrt work great at long ranges in my parents house.

edit: actually I used hyperwrt, not dd-wrt.

If the antennas on the WRTP54G are "omni directional" then you may want to try situating the antennas horizontally instead of vertically since you are trying to connect from above the router. From what I have read, omni directional antennas broadcast their signal in all directions on a flat plane. So if you are above or below the router you will not get a good signal. I hope this helps and I am sure I did not get all of the facts correct. Very Happy

I agree with this. I have my WRTP54G and cable modem in the basement since the area around my TV was getting too messy with all the equipment (TV, Cable box, DVD, VCR, X-Box). I placed the antenna horizontally and the signal reaches reliably to both the first and second floors of my house. I keep my notebook on the first floor. My desktop and my wife's notebook are both on the second floor. All three machines get a solid signal and never drop below 48 Mb.
