    Hello, i have this problem with with HTC Desire S smartphone currently. When i am in my room, connection is fine, but when in another room further than 5 meters, i lose connection, though i have good Wi-Fi signal.

    The interesting part is that when i turn or rotate my smartphone or change place, eventually connection returns. This is weird because i have no range limit in my Edimax's router BIOS. Router has one antenna FYI which i tried rotating differently to no avail. Drivers are latest and router is old.
