    some tips for maximizing the router's connection range (although its for computer)

    You may want to find a router with a better signal? but that involves spending money haha

    The wii supports both 802.11b devices and 802.11g the second one is much faster/better so if your routers a bit older maybe its time to replace it

    Although the simplest solution would still be shifting around some hardware

    hope ive been helpful

    What router are you using? There are a few ways to solve this problem. If your router has detachable antenna, get a higher power antenna. This is the easiest way, but it may not work very well with cheaper antenna. Second, you can get a wireless extender, but it is usually even more pricy than the antenna. Third, set up a wireless bridge using another wireless router. If you are using a Broadcom chip based router (e.g. Linksys, Belkin, USR, etc..), you can get another one to extend the coverage. I have my main router with DSL uplink in the basement, one router in the first floor, and 2 routers in the upstairs bedrooms all bridged together. Last but not least, just get a better router. I found the signal strength varies a lot with brands and model. Among Belkin, Linksys, and USR routers based on the same chipset, the USR one has the highest signal.

    One route would be a signal amplifier, but those cost a lot. Second choice would be to google ways to make a homemade signal amplifier. I've tried making one before and the signal didn't improve, but in all fairness I didn't devote much time to making it and didn't follow the instructions to a T. Good luck and post back if you find a good way to improve signal strength.

    Is the Wii directly below the router? Most antennas have a donut shaped coverage so it may help to move one or both antennas to the horizontal position.
