I have a poor wireless signal in my home..probably because my home was built with steel beams as opposed to wood..however, my main PC is upstairs and i can't use my laptop downstairs to connect to internet as it tells me the signal is poor...is there a device to boost signal on the market. Any advice would be appreciated.

Slightly out of date advice as N standard may make a difference too.

You could also check different channels your router/modem uses. If it's not set to auto try different broadcasting channels. Usually range from 1 to 13.

Home plug ethernet network devices do not have to be on the same ring main to work, just fed off the same distribution system on the same phase of the supply, which should always be the case in a domestic situation

Turns out that the problem was caused by 2 AV video senders in the next room blocking my wireless signal .. turned them off and lo and behold..everything is working fine .. thanks to all who took the time to reply .. much obliged to you.
