“Dear PoPville,

I live in a 100 year old town home in Dupont. The back bedroom is set up as an office, and is where my wireless router sits. I have terrible wifi reception pretty much everywhere else in the house. There are a number of plaster walls and a bathroom between the back room and the front of the house. Moving the router out of that room is problematic for a number of reasons, and I’ve upgraded to the most powerful router, turned it up to 11 and so on. Have your readers experienced similar issues, and what work-arounds have folks come up with?”
