I managed to partially revitalize the WiFi by extending the desktop's antenna another six inches, with a homemade extender of inter-wrapped copper wire. Didn't think it would work when I heard about it, but it tripled the trickle of internet I was experiencing. Can't argue with the results. I'm in Utah this week with family, gotta love the holiday season :)
Hope you all had a great weekend, talk to you later.
