    Well, I moved my router from off of the floor behind my trashcan on the lower right to on my desk in the upper left. It seems to have made a substantial improvement. I'll have to see how things go.

    That's a pretty old Sylvania monitor. One of my good friends use to have one and his fiance just replace it with a 23" @ 1080p. :) The higher you can put it up the better. Be careful having it near your computer though. If it is behind your tower your case could act as a barrier for the wi-fi signal, especially if it has metal in the chassis.
    MT Alex says thanks.
