My house is not that big, but I have the best in the retail (netgear rangemax router and card). And the computer on the other side of the house (2nd floor) barely gets a connection. It constantly needs to repair a connection. Why is the router not having a great range. Even if it connects. It connects at such a slow rate. 1 or 2 mbps. My router has capacities of up to 108mbps. What is wrong with the connection?

It doesn't have an antenna...it's the netgear rangmax router...which supposedly has 7 internal antennas

Have you tried bring the computer closer to see if the signal gets better? Not as a permanent fix but just to see if the signal gets better.

Unless it's faulty it has to be environment. Put the Rangemax up high, position it out of line of site of microwave ovens and other RFI generating objects like cell phones and cordless phones. Try selecting different channels (if that applies) - check the troubleshooting section of your manual or the website.
