Does he have a desktop or notebook computer. With my note book I found that the Atheros AR 5006EG Wireless network adaptor to be excellent in getting a wireless signal. I would suggest to get this wireless adaptor because I have never lost a signal and the speed is awesome. I also found that with Belkin you do not get long range with it. So I myself wouldn't get that product for nothing. But in my opinion Atheros is the way to go. I can get the signal from two, to four house away from mine.
