Do a google search for programs that monitor signal strength how detailed do you want to get because there is a 4 bar image on the bottom right hand corner of your screen.

The simplest way to do this is to open command prompt by going to Start > Run > and type ine CMD hit OK in that window type this command ...

ipconfig and hit Enter

then note the deafault gateway address of your wireless area connection and type...

ping (deafault gateway address) usually -t

it should look something like this:

ping -t

once you hit enter it will keep showing you the time it took for the ping to bounce back to you, as you pick up your laptop and walk around the house these numbers will change depending on how far you are from the router. Smaller numbers will indicate a better signal strength while bigger ones will indicate poor signal. So you can also use the signal strength indicator that windows has built in by going to your network connections and double click on the wireless one.

Good Luck.
