Wireless routers working round the house

Do any of you suffer from unreliable connecting to a wireless router depending on which room you're in?

Re: Defrag?

It must cost them something to inflict this pain on people - not enough obviously.

Re: Backups to the cloud

I spoke with a guy at work who uses Amazon S3 to backup his stuff to - I'm glad I don't have as many files as he does as he has 7TB backed up to the cloud!
