I've got an N router and the wireless works fine when i'm in the same room as the box, but, my room is not the one with the wireless box in it and i dont seem to get any sort of performance in it. the walls in my house are very thin. if you pictured two square rooms of about 5 by 5 metres next to each other on the bottom floor. the room at the front has the wireless box in it. i am in an identical room above the room at the back. not really a massive distance away but i cant seem to get signal in my room or in other rooms in the house that are a similar distance away. any ideas for what i could do to make the wireless reach these rooms.

Could be a couple of things. Try changing the channel of the wireless in the config screen. Some channels conflict with other devices such as cordless phones so trial a few. Could also be electrical interference if the router is near another electrical device such as fridge / freezer etc.
Lastly even though walls are thing you could be in a building with a metal frame which plays havoc with wifi.
Hope this helps.
