Default Whats a good way to boost my wireless internet reception?

I just bought a brand new "10x" router and a new modem. I am using my wireless internet for now until I run a new ethernet wire through the attic but the signal is extremely low still. Anything you guys can think of?

LOL ... I was just teasing ya ... you should have at least a "very good" signal from 20 feet. Is it just your laptop or anybody's laptop that has the connectivity issue?

You most probably can't increase the reception anymore. 20ft. isn't far at all. If you really want something to help you. You could get a signal booster. But, it won't get you any better performance. Or, you could just buy a better wireless modem.
