Re: Wi-fi signal issues

I don't know what router you have, but you may want to checkout aftermarket firmware for the wrt54g. 

DD-WRT, OpenWRT, Tomato... I believe you can turn up the gain on the routers antenna in all of those distributions (I know you can in dd-wrt), but I am not sure if that will resolve your issues with latency. 

With two of them you could setup a wireless ap/bridge, which adds another hop and may not get you to the desired latency range.

The antenna has a 1m cable on it, but even with moving it the signal does not improve.  part of the issue is that I have an exterior wall (wall that has insulation and other goodies stuffed into it) behind my desk and directly past the exterior part of my bedroom wall is a wooden entertainment center that isn't an issue for any other devices (Wii, Pocket PC, PSP).  I have found out that the head of my bed is about the max distance I can get out of any device and devices like my Pocket PC and PSP work sparadically.
