    Hi, i have a WAG54G v2 (FW 1.00.19) and it's working perfect as ADSL modem, Router and WLAN Access Point.

    But in my room i have very low WLAN signal. 1 wall (about 70 cm) and 2 or 3 walls with about 30 cm are between my notebook (Dell Latitude D810 with internal Dell Truemobile 1450) and the router.

    So maybe you please can tell me some hints to get better WLAN signal there?
    Any adjusting tips?
    Other antennas possible?
    Other hints?

    Cheap and cheerful

    If you like the crisps in a tin (pringles)... once you have popped and finished the tin place it over the antena, I have seen this boost the signal once or twice.

    Otherwise its time to get the wallet out.

    There are antenas for the WAG - high gain, this seem to be only obtainable in the USA atm...

    Alternatively reposition the WAG.

    You can get signal boosters, but these are as much as the WAG itself. Might as well go for a AP to boost your signal.
