I replaced my wireless g adsl model W8960n as there was a lot of positive recommendations here. However I seem to be getting worse reception from it than I was from my old modem. My main machines are downstairs in the house, but the modem has to be upstairs as that is where the phone jack is.
Any thoughts in what I could do to improve things? The aerials, does it matter which whey they point?
Also the modem doesn't really provide too much feedback on the devices that are connected (eg what their ip addresses are, what wireless mode g or n etc.). Can anyone recommend a firmware upgrade and setup?
