I have the home portal wireless router through SBC Yahoo! DSL.  A friend 
and I were recently testing the ability of our laptops' wireless cards to 
pick up signals.  My laptop doesn't drop from 11 Mbps to 5.5 Mbps until 
nearly 100 feet away in the backyard.  I can easily pick up signal on the 
street and my router is buried in a closet in the center of the house.
