Hello, recently, i've been noticing that my signal from my router is not very strong. I live in a 3 story home (This is including a basement) and I have my router placed in the basement. What can I do to get a strong wi-fi signal from all the locations of my home?

P.S. I am with Time Warner's Roadrunner and have a Motorola SBG6580 branded router, if that helps.

You could do one of two things. You could buy a new router, with a better range. Or you could get a wireless repeater which will rebroadcast your signal making it stronger.

I personally live in a 4,500 sq. ft. house and I bought a high-end router because I need to have it in the corner of the house because of where one of the offices is now I have decent signal throughout my house the yard is the next thing I need to fix...

I could try that repeater idea. Any suggestions?

Sorry, for the lateness in my response, I have been busy lately. Any repeater will work. I would suggest looking for one that supports 802.11n. But other than that find one you like.
