I'm in wi-fi hell right now trying to get a halfway decent connection on my desktop computer. I had previously bought a ASUS 9dBi High Gain Wireless Antenna and used it with my router, thinking it would boost the transmitter signal.

Right now I bought a new wi-fi card for my desktop, and I'm wondering if I should continue using the antenna on the router to boost the transition signal, or use it on the desktop to better receive the signal coming from the router.

Either way, I'm sure my wifi will suck, but any help you could give would be great.

The first thing to try is update the firmware. Be sure you use the correct update or you will brick the router.

In my instruction manual it gives you settings you can try to extend the bubble, look in the manual and see if they give you this option.

Keep the router as near the ceiling of your domicile as you can, away from all metal objects, not on the floor or desk.

If you have movable antennas, try different configurations and look at the bars when you move them, this takes two people. Have your helper tell you when it is all you can get.
