With the wireless router in a front room of my bungalow, it is only just useable in a front room after three 100mm block walls (the line from router to laptop being perpendicular to the walls).
There is no signal at the corresponding rear room, because the line has to pass through one wall at a very low angle, turning a 100mm wall into maybe a 1000mm path of concrete. I don't need coverage in that room, so there is no point in my relocating the router.
