Don't hide your gateway!

My son asked me to help improve his WiFi coverage.  I convinced him that all that all he had to do was move his gateway to the top of his cablinet.  I moved it for him today.  I thought that it might be interesting to post the increase in signal levels:

Note the signal level increase for LGwebOSTV.  It's 11 dB.  It's almost 16 times higher!  The speed is at least double what it was.
