    LOL. No way you were still using your home router at 3 miles. Could be a glitch, locale (will turn router on to check things), or you picked up someone else's. Who knows what caused it.

    Max I've seen is about 1000' Between our city hall and middle school. That was clear line of sight from second floor window.

    Depending on the router model, there might be a setting to power down the range if it persists. On my d-link, there is one. Model is DGL-4500.

    That's strange. I have a linxsys 2.4ghz and in my 2500 sqft house I can barely get wifi on the droid in my bedroom. (the router is on the other side of the house) Maybe one bar. If I go in my bathroom I loose it completely. My old iphone had the same distance too. I agree with one of the posters, the icon must not have refreshed or something and you were on 3g.

    Check your power output settings. Maybe it's set low.

    I have a RangeMax D-Link N router. I get about 600ft range out of it. With a repeater in my attic i can get around 1000 ft.
