    Should do the trick. If not try a restore as a last resort.
    If I was a betting man, and I am, I would bet the reset of network settings will work wonders.

    Thread pre-fix added.

    Have you moved your router at all?

    Is the router located on an upper level or a lower, such as, basement level. I've often heard that you can get better coverage when the router/antenna is higher. Also look for other electronic interference sources such as the humble microwave oven. The composition of the intervening walls/floors can attenuate your signal strength as well. You might benefit from setting your router to broadcast on another channel versus the default most people use. Back in my XP laptop days, I had an app that detected the various wifi networks in my general area. Such an app can show network names, type of security, channel, and strength at your site.
    YMMV
