Take the attenuator out - DIY solutions on RF networks are usually a bad idea unless the user actually understands at a deep level what they're doing, how and why it would work.

If they're still poor I can flag this for the forum staff to advise, and if need be they can arrange a technician visit without having to risk the diabolically poor phone or chat "service".
