Where is your wireless router located? If its fairly close and you still get poor signal, you could have interference on the wireless signal. Some things to try: Change the wireless channel setting on your router, don't use AUTO. Choose channel 1, 6, or 11.
Do you have a cordless landline phone? Do not place it too close to the router or that is a factor in the interference.
You may not even need another device as that may add to your problems.
