Headchange, what is this extender you speak of?

It extends things. In this case, specifically, your wifi signal

So, what it sounds like needs to happen is this:

You need to have someone run a cat 5 line from kids BR to LR and have a wireless access point that rebroadcasts the signal in the LR

I agree. I helps disperse impacted waves of interference from the transmitter nodules.

If this doesn't work then you probably just need a new router

It's probably a shitty router honestly.

You should call your ISP and see if they can bump up the power the router is putting out. I know our Residential Gateways are defaulted at a power of 4, and we can crank it to 10 if need be.

Where is the router sitting in his room? Try putting it higher up on a shelf or table and see if that helps. Moving it around just a little can help tremendously.

Ignore every other post suggesting you upgrade your internet (retarded) or getting an extender (rarely the solution if you don't live in a mansion).

It is not your router. It's the iPhone, and extenders, router upgrades, etc. will only marginally fix it, if at all. The iPhone 5 is notorious for having poor wifi signal. My wife's iPhone 5 suffers the same problem, and I know it's not my home network setup, since I have a Linksys EA4500 at the center of the house.

I need to look into fixing it for my wife's phone, actually. Maybe I can create a small internal antenna to boost it.

Didn't see this.

It's not the router.

You can purchase a wireless repeater. Not very expensive, and you place it between the router and your computer and it will instantly boost your signal.
