couple of thoughts :
keep in mind its a 2 way street and the puter maybe the weaker link (rg3800 is 400mW)
u may try a diff channel and see if it improves ? (trial and error ) try 4 then try 9 etc
also a program called netstumbler can be used to see what choice of channels might be best.......
the passcode is on the sticker on the side of the rg3800 residentail gateway ( u will need it )

is this the only wireless computer in the house? If not, do the other ones get a better signal?
Most of the time a weak signal (including dropped signals) is due to either distance o more oftenr signal interference. Take note what is near the RG and also was is between the RG and the computer....

Bypass the wifi issue completely with this. It'll use the AC wiring in your house to create the network..
Or if you have a cablebox (set top box...whatever you want to call it) that is close to your wife's computer, check to see if the network port in the back of it is not being used. If its unused, then you can run cat5 from your computer to that network port. Voila, instant internet.
Keep in mind the 1-2 bars thing really doesn't matter unless your wife is getting disconnected. All that matters is that her connection is stable.
