Installing dd-wrt will instantly improve signal? :p


Not necessarily, but most people's WiFi woes are due to the pathetic firmwares that are preloaded on these devices. Dropped connections and constant reboots were an issue with my Linksys router until I installed DD-WRT. Now the thing is just rock solid. I don't even think about it anymore.

Same, but I'm on Tomato (which is more minimalistic in interface). Toastman's Tomato builds are great!
