Elements that can be blocking signal strength are ...ceramic tiled walls, mirrors, concrete, microwave (not just the cooking type) & other radio devices. For example the central heating controller in our home interferes with my wireless mouse sometimes knocking the connection clean out despite moving the channels, so as previously mentioned theres lots that can cause impact.
15ft isnt far...you should still be getting a decent signal at 30+ft. Check the router & wless card manual for references.
I work cabled to the router but have 6 wireless devices in my home...all works ok...but Im not gaming where a lot of datapackets at large sizes are constantly being swapped. Test the router cabled as mentioned.....if theres stil poor performance...contact your ISP.

I have the option of a 5dBi and an 8dBi antenna. Is 8dBi so much better? Because I have two antenna ports on my card, I could have 2x 5dBi for the same price as the one 8dBi, but if 8dBi is so much better I could go for 2x 8dBi.
And to my never ending story (RAM issue): I tested both ram sticks separately, the first showed no problems for 3 weeks of use, the second gave me instant blue screens and application errors. I run that test two times though, second time the first stick showed no problems once again, the second one worked relatively ok this time, but I noticed application errors and other problems (sometimes PC couldn't boot from the first time) and later had blue screens a couple of times. I tried them both again and had issues. Now I run the first ram stick again and as always no problems (at all).
Am I save to say that the first ram is good and the second one is bad? How must I approach the manufacturer now to get a replacement?
I'd appreciate your wisdom this time again.

Regarding the antenna. Guys, does a 8dBi antenna does really much than a 5dBi? Would you suggest to use the 8dBi?
As I explained I have two antenna ports on my WLAN card, I plan to use two antennas, so I can place them at different spots to have more coverage. Would that make sense? As I know laptops have an antenna wire around the display and I had quite a good WLAN connection with my old laptop.

Edit: Or would it be better to get 2x1GB so these, alongside with the 2x2GB, would give me 6GB dual-channel?
From what I know for optimal dual-channeling you need a pair of equal RAM (same model), but that doesn't apply for a second pair, doesn't it?

I guess I just get me a 1GB for 12,-€ just to keep the PC bootable for the time being untill I get my current RAM exchanged. I keep that RAM then as backup, for the case I'll have further problems with the main memory.
So as I read having two pairs of RAM where one pair is slower, will make the system use the slower configuration even with the faster pair, right?
So my current memory set is 2x2GB 1333Mhz CL7. If I get me additional 2x1GB 1333Mhz CL9, the actual working configuration will be effectively at 6GB 1333Mhz CL9? In case I'm right, would that be better than just 4GB 1333Mhz CL7?
Or am I understanding and talking humbug?

Edit: Ok, indoor it varies between 9 and 11 Mbps. Better than nothing.

It's not easy I guess, but thanks for your input. Maybe it really is better to just get me that cheap 1GB for the time being until I get back my 4GB memory from the supplier.
The 2x1GB in question is this.
