    Try setting the router to G-mode (or mixed B/G), reboot it and see if that helps.

    I use the Belkin N1.

    I have read that N routers cause problems. Make sure to have router set to b g and n standards and not just n.

    I also have mine set jointly on AES/TPK

    I have the same router, set to all modes B,G and N. I can be in the front room, and barely recieve a signal. It would be nice to isolate the problem to this router, but I can't. We have a wireless network at the office, that all my isheep fanboy work mates can access at full strengh, and my hero can barely see...

    I have the latest orange firmware installed.
