Alright, so we got comcast cable in our house yesterday, went out and bought some $100 router and now have wireless internet. However, I have been doing some speedtest from different areas in the house and have found some interesting results. It seems that when my computer (or my friends - tested using both) has a direct line of sight to the wireless router, it gets an average download speed of 15mbps downloading and 2.5mbps uploading. However, when line of sight is blocked, even by one or two thin walls, the download speed drops to an average of about .75mbps but the upload stays the same. Any ideas why this is happening? I'm very curious, and somewhat frustrated as to why 1 wall can mean the difference between a 15 second download or a 5 minute one.
