E 61 Wifi Problems

I don't know abaout others but i had been facing some WiFi problems with my e 61 , the connectivity works great once I am in my room near the Wifi but as soon as i go downstairs the signals drop drastically , now my house is only on 9000 sq feet still it has problems connecting to my router when i am in my kitchen at the far end of the house , one story below . I have a Linksys WRT54g and WRT54gL , both now running custom Firmware running at 100mW still the range only improved by a few feet , on the other hand my Dell Inspiron can connect to it throughout the house

You realize 9000 square feet is quite large...

How does a laptop connect? I am in just over 4000 square feet and I use an Airport Extreme and two Airport Express basestations to extend my network in hard to reach places...

No issues with WIFI for me.

9000 sq ft is not that big only 90 x 100 ft , my Dell inspiron works well throughout the house except basement but E 61 does not catch signals a floor below , have to fix the position of my router and will see what happens

Mine was disconnecting very often and was loosing signal, but after the new firmware, everything's OK

I have fixed the connection a little , moved router a little further away from the wall now it covers the floor below still not at par with my Dell . P.S I have the new firmware installled .
I am also working on getting high gain antennas once i find the one at right price currenlty the linksys one cost USD 100 , else i will make me a Pringles Can Antenna
