    are there any obstructions from where you sit with the laptop and where the router is? Obstructions as in walls or what not.

    Might not be a bad idea to walk around with your laptop too, test the signals in other areas of your establishment. This could help you pinpoint possible components of interference that celticfan was referring to.

    what kind of walls are they? Brick? Reg sheet rock? Is there metal in the walls? If hte signal goes through a few walls then it is not uncommon for the signal to be low. Depending on what type of wall it is.

    Also can be sure you have the latest firmware for your router and the latest driver for your adapter.

    Have you verified the firmware is up to date?

    Also, if it is under a year from the purchase you can call Linksys for support and they may replace it if they deem there is something wrong with it.
