Any tips? I'm using wireless internet and it is IMPOSSIBLE to play any online games without disconnecting or lagging up real bad. I've tried my best to get my wireless adaptor closer to the Router, but look what I end up with!

Help appreciated

I don't get whats going on. Your wireless range isn't long enough to reach your computer?

If you could, bring your internet modem (be it Cable, DSL, ClearWire, etc) to your room and set it up in there. Connect it to your router and then run a real line from the router to your computer. Wireless connections aren't good for internet gaming at all. I tried it for a while and it was, for lack of a better word, poop.

Failing to be able to bring the modem/router to your room, run a really long cable lol.

Is that a USB cable I see!??? Are you using any USB signal boosters, or anything that adds power over that distance?

Why not use an Ethernet cable (CAT5)? I think it would be the better option, if you have a couple Wireless/Cat5 hubs, or routers.

They do have Wireless Signal Boosters, that can increase the range of a wireless adapter/base station.

Location, Location, Location. A wireless device is a strange thing. The direction it is facing, and the part of the room it is in, can affect signal quality. They do not project the signal evenly, but almost at random. There is no telling what can cause interference. Just try repositioning the wireless adapter, and the PC, untill you get a better signal.

Yes, I think that would be a much more practicle solution than USB cables.
