My friend has a wireless router (linksys speed booster) and I connect to it with an access point (linksys).
My access point signal is about 47% - 50%.
If my friend increases his internet speed (ADSL - from 1mb/s to 4mb/s) -  will I benefit from this ?? Does my internet speed depend on the strenght of the signal ?
Please enlighten me on this one...

It can,

if you are running at 802.11b, it will typically run at 11mbits/s (throughput approx 6mbits/s HD)
if you have a signal level of 47% - 50% (not knowing where 0% is, or where 100% is) i would guess that you have a signal of around -75dbm - most chipsets can still operate at 11mbits/s there, otherwise it'll drop back to 5.5mbits/s and eventually to 2, then 1 ..
even if you are operating at 5.5 you will notice a increase in performance, but you wont be able to take full advantage of the 4mbits/s he has. if you have 11mbits/s, then you should ..

If you are running on 802.11g .. you'll be fine & will be able to take full advantage of the upgrade..

Kind Regards,
Rob
