    Hi balron. I have seen here and on broadbandbuyers.co.uk that users of the WAG54G have serious problems with the WAG54G wireless side. the signal strength is crap tbh and there is not much you cna do about boosting that. however you cna try to tweak the reciving antennas by adding reflectors too them.

    my downstairs pc had serious prlems gaining a signal and keeping connected. i then bought a Dlink DWL-M60AT to add to my belkin PCI card. this transformed the signal strength ten fold. i have never had a dropped connection now.

    try making some reflectors for you antennas on the other devices
