Hi Karen, With so many wireless devices in the home these days, they all compete with different signals. Some run at the 2.4 Ghz while others like newer laptops will work better at the higher 5 Ghz signals. Many routers will take the slowest speed device and run "only" at that speed. My suggestion is to get what is called a dual-band router. I like TrendNet or ASUS. But a lot is personal preference. You can stop by a place like Micro Center in St. Louis Park and tell them what I said and they should be able to show you your options. The price range is from $80 - $140 but your internet experience will be much improved. Plus this class of router has the Gigabyte ports which will take advantage of the higher speed DSL or Cable connection if you have one. Good luck.
