Router help required please

Hi All 
I have a very poor w-fi signal from my supplied Plusnet netgear fibre router to my PC with an internal wireless card  - never more than 2 bars (not sure if it's a problem with the router itself as the house laptops connect fine)
Would replacing the router with this help?

Many thanks

That router is well reviewed, so much so that I'm going to take a closer look at it.
Whether it will fix your wifi problem depends on your exact problem / house build.  Getting an external wifi card for your computer might be a better solution.  Killer question is with two bars are you still getting adequate through put?

Cheers. It was either that or the ASUS RT-N66U.
In terms of the billion, it looks like a new model is to be released in June:

The price of the Billion BiPAC 7800N may come down as a result.  Smiley
