Wifi Range and Snowball Earth

I was successful in moving the router, etc., but now I have some wifi issues. Cat Lady's laptop has no problem, nor does the Roku, so I assume the issue lies mainly with my desktop's network adapter card, but I'm not 100% certain. We were looking at perhaps upgrading the router and/or card, but for now, we're going to go with a real cheap solution: a long ethernet wire.

Kvelling time: My daughter Sara's going to Vancouver as one of the authors presenting a research paper. This is part of the work being done on the Snowball Earth Hypothesis (Wikipedia). She'll be 25 next month.
