The aluminum faced insulation in my in-law apartment is preventing me from getting a good wireless connection when I need to use my laptop. Sometimes it works, but usually doesn't, or gets dropped. I have a cat5 cable run from the router in the main house in to the apartment, and I am thinking about getting another wireless router and hooking it up to just before it goes in to my computer and then using one of the ports to hook the router up to my NIC as shown in the attachment. This should solve my wireless problem if it's possible to do.
