How can I increase the range of my brand new Linksys WRT600N wireless router so that my wife's Dell Inspiron 1505 gets a better signal? My former router, a 3 year old Linksys model (WRT54G) seemed to send a much better signal, and I bought this new router thinking I'd see improvements a-plenty, but noooooo, and documentation is sorely lacking. Help! I really don't want to go back to the WRT54G, since surely this new router is more capable when set up properly, right? [more inside]

How do I give my computers subdomain names on my local network? For example, mylaptop.mynetwork.com, mydesktop.mynetwork.com, momslaptop.mynetwork.com, kids.mynetwork.com and so on?
Do I have to set up some kind of local DNS or is there an easier way to do it in the router?
I am not concerned at this point about being able to access the subdomains from the WAN although that would be handy later. It's the LAN I'm interested in.
(Obviously I am using Bonjour right now but for I want to use the subdomains too).
I own mynetwork.com and it points to a static IP.
My LAN router is firewalled behind that. It's a WRT54G running DD-WRT.
I have a spare computer I could run DNS on but I'd rather not have to do that.
Everything is Macs running OS X, mostly Leopard.

Is there any reason I wouldn't be able to plug two Linksys WRT54G
WiFi devices into a Linksys BEFSR81
LAN router? Will the WRT54G's play nice or will they fight with one another, requiring configuration to be done? SSIDs will be different of course.

Is there any advantage to having a router and cable modem made by the same company, or is it better to go best of breed in both cases regardless of maker? [more inside]

EarlyAdopterFilter: After several happy months of running Windows Vista RC1, I've upgraded to RC2. Ever since that day, I've been intermittently getting a "Limited connectivity" error that requires my network adapter to be reset. I don't want to go back to XP or RC1, so I need to make this work.
