Wifi problems (FC 6)

I need to run this box on a wireless connection, and am having some problems.

1 - I have a very poor signal, considering that the box is only around 3m 
(10ft) from the router.  I changed the antenna on the router to one that says 
it increases range by up to 50%, maximum 40m, but the strength received 
hasn't altered.  I still get only 40% strength.

2 - I thought that wpa_supplicant cached the passphrase, but it doesn't seem 
to.  I still have to give the passphrase after bootup completes.

3 - At bootup, ntpd tries to run before there is a connection.  I'd like to 
get the connection up in time to use ntpd at boot.  What would I need to do?
