Most wireless routers use an omni-directional antenna and therefore work best when located in the middle of the house, and elevated a couple feet off the floor w/ no immediate obstructions. If you must keep the router in some corner of the house, you might consider installing a directional antenna (you can even try various DIY solutions that cost almost nothing, like the Windsurfer), or consider supplementing your network w/ a wireless repeater.
