Weak Wireless Signal

If you have a USB wireless device such as a wireless NIC, mouse controller, etc. that has a weak signal because of location, try adding a USB extension cable and placing the device in a more open location.

USB cables from stores such as Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc. are over priced 5 or 6 times what you can get on the internet.

For wireless network cards, you can also buy a range-extending antenna for the computer's WiFi card or router, or a wireless range extender.
