We need more power! lol not unless you are really desperate

Bluetooth or 2.4ghz?

for 2.4ghz
Find an external 2.4 GHz antenna, the kind used on many wireless routers. If you're tech savvy, you can remove the antenna from an old router and reuse it.

Bluetooth
Try getting a usb extender and a discreet dongle and placing it in a location closer to where you are using your devices.
