It sounds like something is wrong. I am getting about 60% signal
from another room separated by walls from the base station,
an Orinoco rg-1100.

Experiment with positioning the antenna on the Squeezebox -
I found about a 20% difference between best and worst placement.

Placing the access point as high as possible also tends to
help signal strength.
