Here is where I am with my home network. x3 Machines: 1 desktop , 1 HTPC and 1 laptop. All have belkin 11g wireless nics. File sharing and transfer works fine. Radmin works fine from the HTPC to the desktop. ICS is operational but is unreliable : distance from host doesn't make any difference. Reception from the desktop to the HTPC is usable but not great. Seperation is in the region of 20ft with a couple of walls and one floor in between. Moving machines closer does improve reception but is there any other way to get better reception without moving the machines? Aerials , software tips??? Really I'd like to be able to surf the net wirelessly on the laptop and potentially use the htpc to obtain cd track data from the net.
