    Why, when I'm only 2ft from my wireless router, does the wifi status bars not show full strength?

    Wifi bars don't mean much. I've seen perfectly solid connections with one bar.
    There's no universally agreed upon standard for what constitutes one bar on five bars.
    Most measure signal to noise ratio. In a room with a lot of other equipment there can be a lot of noise.

    Post back when you start having disconnect problems. In the meantime amuse yourself wirh wifi analyzer free in the market.
