After moving the office one of the things that doesn't work reliably anymore (besides a dead printer and a dead Tektronix) is the WLAN. It's a Linksys BEFW11S4 router with the routing parts disabled, to act only as a wireless AP. Worked well for all those years.
Long story short I can achieve good to excellent signal strength in the living area. However, while the connection via this WLAN point always works just fine in the office it is very erratic in the living area of the house. Frequent Internet access time-outs despite great signal strength. We have insulation in all exterior and interior walls, unfortunately aluminum backed.
Tried a parabolic reflector on one of the diversity antennas. Even more signal, but same problem. Can't put it on both because that kills access to part of the office. Any ideas?
