take the phone apart and check for loose connectors

If all connectors are secure, the wifi antenna may be bad or the wifi board in it which I believe is on the logic board

Guessing is misleading to the person that is asking. the question here is for a 3G not a 4 or anything else.

Removed any 4 related sidenots and notes, but the 3G was never plagued with antennagate

Nick, I believe is correct. Since you are getting reception near the router, the connector is loose from the Logic Board. The connector for wifi is Connector #6, carefully reseat this connector to the Logic Board.
