I agree with this picture entirely. I can see the neighbour's wifi behind our house and the school's wifi across the street but I can't get a connection to my own lounge room wifi from a bedroom through two walls as the signal is too weak.

i think the problem is that most people use the routers given to them by the isp, which suck. if u go out and buy a decent one u shouldnt have this problem
