I've got a WRT54-GL router running Tomato v1.25.
With 2 laptops and my iPhone all less than 10 feet from the router, Tomato is reporting ~50% signal quality for each of them. However, on each of the laptops/iPhone, the wireless connection reports full bars.
I also have another computer downstairs from the router, which acts as my HTPC and media server. It an Edimax EW-7128G, which has been great for a $20 card. Lately, I haven't been able to play HD movies or video from the HTPC because apparently data can't be transfered quickly enough between the devices to provide a smooth stream.
All the computers are running Windows 7 ultimate, and the file sharing is done using the new "Libraries" system.
Moving the router or the HTPC currently aren't options. Any suggestions making this work better?
