I have a refurbished Nook Color I bought via Walmart. I have been experiencing issues with mine connection to my home WiFi. If I am standing right next to my router it says Fair Signal Strength, if I sit on my couch which is probably 5 feet from my router it says Poor if it connects at all. I have a fairly small house with two levels. I can connect to my WiFi anywhere in or even outside my house with my HTC Incredible(Android phone), with great signal strength.
I am useing a Linksys router. I have read that changeing settings may help on the router. I have changed almost everything that I can think of and nothing helps this. I have narrowed it down to the NC. Is there anything I have missed? Is this a common issue with the NC's? Just the luck of the draw?

My NOOKcolor isn't doesn't get as solid a signal as my laptop, but I can certainly get more than 5 feet with it! My wireless access point is in my basement, and I can move around on the 2nd floor with no dropped signals.
I'd suggest trying for an exchange, if you can. There's not a lot of troubleshooting you can do with the stock B&N firmware, short of restarting the NC and your wireless equipment.
