I have decent signal in my basement and my w-router is on the first floor (ground+1). It really depends on the materials in you house and the quality of your router. Most modern Canadian houses, like mine, have wood frames and light insulation on internal walls. I use a linksys wrt54g and it's been great. One thing you can always do is buy a booster or high gain antennae, these will increase your signal strenght and are cheap and easy to install.

I get a full signal in the basement and my router is on the 3rd floor of my house. Point the antenna downward to see if it might help. If you try your router and notice the signal isn't good you can try a booster or even a piece of metal attached to the antenna.

If there's trouble, get a directional antenna for your computer end, or for the base station, if you've got one with two antennas. Align for max signal. There are also repeaters available that will reradiate the poor signal.
