More findings:

- PCI card gives way better results/connection than cardslot (test on 10 metres from router, behind two walls : pci - 177KB/sec / cardslot - 122KB/sec)
- play with the position of your antenna, positioning the antenna 1 metre higher on the first flour improved the connection drastically on the ground floor
- Kiss dvd player + i-net radio + wireless here i come

Finally came around to actually installing it.

Added 1 cheap wireless router and wiring, disabled DHCP on 1 router and both their IP's and SSID's (and security) and it worked flawless immediatly !! Thought it would be a nightmare configuring it ... but it was extremly simple.

Nice bonus is the added coverage, combining the two signals apparantly gives an extra boost to the range:
where the coverage at point 1 at approx. 30 meters from AP1 was about 10-15% it is now 20-25% by adding AP2 at approx. 40 meters from that point.
