    I have a standard Sky wireless router but we have dead spots all over the house where the signal is so crap it cant be used. :Doh:

    Ive tried the tin foil trick which helped a bit but how do I get better wifi reception round the house? Do I need more kit or a booster of some kind?? :Sad:

    All help as always appreciated :thumb:

    Never heard of having dead spots with wifi - you can boost your speed by snipping the bell wire, but i cannot see how that would improve your reception.

    Hopefully an expert will be along soon that can advise. Have you looked into aerial extensions? I know you can get them for dongles - it may be possible to wire to your router.

    I will go off and have a surf and see if anyone else has had this problem! I know a friend uses overclockers website, and they are quite geekish in there when it comes to technology.
