    I was wondering if you have any tips on boosting my wireless router's signal?

    Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

    Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

    Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a couple of examples.

    Hawking [HAI7SIP] Hi-Gain 7dBi Omni-Directional Antenna

    Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna

    Hawking should be available in the UK, any reason you think it isn't? Most of the major players have hi-gain antennas, I don't know about the signal booster, haven't see those that often.

    You might also be interested in alternate firmware for your router. If you have a Linksys, just perform a search in Google for it. ;-)

    I'm using DD-WRT for my WRT54G, and I can increase my range.
