So recently, I have been experiencing some conenctivity issues with my router.
I am on a desktop running Windows 7 Home Premuim 64 Bit. All I constantly get is a 2 bar connection when my router is 2 floors below me.
Now I know what your thinking, "You're too far away from your router" or "The signal isn't strong enough to go through 2 floors"
No. Normally i have a 3-4 bar connection but when I start talking with friends ect it will just drop to 2 bars. It is really frustrating as I keep getting disconnected from chats.
I am using WireShark to sniff the packets, and I am only binging in about 0-20. I know the normal that I bring in is around 100-200.
For the record I am running off a wireless connection on my desktop. I have a Linksys WRT54GS Firmware version v7.50.5.
I really have no idea what to do at this point. Please help I can't keep going on like this.
Also my iPod right next to me has full 3 bars.

Have you tried restarting your router? I've had luck doing that in the past, when I've had issues with my belkin router.

It could mean that your wifi receiver on your desktop is nearing the end of its lifespan.
