This suggestion maybe a bit too obvious but have you tried making a
connection with the laptop in the same room as the desktop/router....if
there's a good solid connection present under those circumstances then
probably something is either blocking on interfering with the wireless
signal when you move the laptop to the other room. That's the first thing
I would check out. :-)
