Need advice w/ WiFi antenna/ signal booster
recently the router that I'm connecting to has been relocated farther away from me so I having very weak internet if any at all.

Speed is is 144Mbps, it's never been more than 54Mbps however it reduces down to 1Mbps
The 1Mbps connection is actualley (when I have a connection) stronge enought to download W7MC TV guide.
signal quaility is 5 bars

This is the WiFi adaptor I'm using it really helped alot to increase the signal quaility to 5 bars however there's still connection problems.

Maybe a WiFi antenna will increase the WiFi signal like this one?

I believe this type antenna can only be connected w/ it's coax cable to a PCI type WiFi adaptor
I'm thinking I unscrew the small plastic antenna from the PCI module and connect this antenna in it's place? I wanting to conect to net w/ both Lap top and desktop.

Are there WiFi USB signal boosters available?or can I unscrew the Roswells plastic antenna and swap w/ the TL-ant?

Any advice on this situation is apresheated STB

You can replace the antennas on both the router and receiver, but you will be better served with a repeater, or WDS enabled router in between.

6 TV's in the house on FiOS and we only pay $4.99/month to connect them all!!! Power to the CableCard and WMC7!!!
