try taking the WEP off run with NO secruity and see how that works.

although she is 30ft and your sons further away - it depends on what between the router and her PC - Walls, Doors, etc

My router is in the front bedroom cubboard and I can use it in the back garden - but one of the back bedrooms will not pickup the signal !!!!!

download this software - it will measure signal strength and all the other channels being broadcast - you may just need to change channels - maybe use 1 or 6 or 11

Free software to check signal strength of wireless is netstumbler 0.4.0 available for download from
Please let us know what the final solution was to any problem posted
