    Are there any other interfering signals in vincinity?
    anything in the 2.4 GHz band? (Microwave, DECT phones, Sat receivers, neighbours using WLAN)
    Most likely the signals are bad.
    I fear your "antenna" wont improve your sending quality (think you'd have to do the same on the Wii side for communication!)
    I can hardly imagine, wraping some aluminium foil THAT way improves WLAN sending quality....but still haven't tested that.
    If you plan to attach external antennas to your devices, loog for an approbiate plug (or even solder such to the devices)

    I tried to make a DIY parabolic reflector too, to try and extend the signal so i could play from my room, but i too failed, absolutely miserably.

    great news from this post, though, because my friend has a spare router that has an antenna that he's giving to me. so, i'll try that dish when i get the router.
