    Hi..im interested in the wireless linksys router 802.11b but i have range
    concerns. I live in a 2 story colonial house. My main pc is upstairs on the
    top floor. I will have that pc hard wired into the router which will sit on
    my desk. Now, I want to be able to use my laptop in my basement wirelessly,
    which is 2 floors down. Will this be a problem? I know it can go through
    walls but will 2 floors be an issue? If so, is there anything i can do to
    boost the range?
    If anyone has a similar setup or if you have advice, i would appreciate the
    feedback. Most places charge a restocking fee if you return things, and i
    think thats outrageous.

    It works great for me. From the basement to my 2nd floor the Signal Strength meter goes
    from Excellent to Very Good.
