Jan 16, 2011

I am using Dell Inspiron 1525, 2008 model with a 1395 WiFi Mini card. The signal strength I get is very low, whereas people in the same location get good strength with other laptops like Sony etc.Is there any way of improving the signal strength without disturbing the router/modem, like some software/ hardware changes in the Laptop. Dell havent answered yet.

Dell :: Inspiron N4050 - Ethernet And Wireless Not Working

Jul 4, 2012

It's a Dell Inspiron N4050, running Windows 7 Home Basic, Service Pack 1. I haven't been able to connect to the internet via an ethernet cable nor wirelessly. The wireless indicator is on (duh!) and the ethernet cable works with a PC sitting next to the laptop. I have a ARRIS modem (yes, the third world) and it works fine wirelessly with other devices here such as phones and laptops. When I plug in the ethernet cable it tells me that it can't identify the network. I do see all the wireless connections but it's the same, unable to identify network. I've tired all sorts of things, having studied computer science myself I'm not a total beginner, but the OS is in Spanish so it's really hard to make sense of things. If I can't fix this soon I will be forced to reformat the computer. The pros of doing that is that I will get the OS in English and lose all the rubbish Dell pre-installs on their products. The setback is that I won't have the drivers installed for the NIC and other things (although they should be on the optical disc that came with the notebook). Perhaps the problem is the modem, maybe I need a driver for it. Somehow I don't think that is the case because I brough my own hard drive from my country of origin and I put it inside the PC and it connected instantly with the internet via the modem.

Dell :: Poor Signal Strength (1525 PCIe Card)

Nov 4, 2011

Just had delivered two vostro 260s desktops both with wireless cards pre installed.

My home wireless network has been in operation for months with a Linksys Dualband router and various devices (.11n and older) operating.

I set up the two PCs in my work room where the router is and they imediately connected successfully.  I moved one of the desktops to another room (about 12 metres away) and it can barely find the network.  At first the signal was not found at all then it would briefly find the network then lose it again.  I re-arranged router, modem, cables etc. to get it about 3m closer and higher up and now the new PC sees the network but the signal strength is poor and all internet actions are very slow.

To put this in some sort of context, I have an HP laptop which detects excellent signal strength from this router at the same location and all round my house.

Dell :: Intel Centrino Advanced N 6230 Signal Strength Is Low

Mar 15, 2013

I have an XPS L502x laptop with an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless card with the latest driver  For the past couple of weeks the strength of the signal as measured by the Intel proset tools goes from excellent to poor in the space of 60 seconds, back and forth.  It seems to do this on all channels from 1 to 13.  It definitely is affecting Internet performance.  I have the security set at WPA-Personal in an attempt to try and stabilise the network.  I have also been using iSSIDer to try and find the best channel since there are about 10 other wireless networks from other houses around me.  I have a D-Link 645 router which is admittedly about 10 metres and 2 or 3 walls away.  However, until a fortnight ago, the network was dead stable showing a strong signal (4 or 5 bars (-50).  Now it is all over the place.  Could it be a damaged card?

Dell :: D600 No Wireless Icon Or Signal Strength Showed On Bottom Right Hand Corner

May 17, 2013

I own a Dell Latitude D600 that I purchased off of Ebay a few months ago. For the past month I have been having an issue with my wireless card. My problem started when I turned on my computer and booted up and when my desktop loaded, no wireless icon or signal strength showed on the bottom right hand corner where are the other icons are. I went to Device Manager and in the Network adapter section was an exclamation point next to the Dell Wireless 1450 Dual Band WLan mini pci card which showed that there is a code 10 error. I have tried uninstalling it but then I would always get the BSOD with the BCMWL5.sys error. I have tried updating the driver as well but it would tell me that it already is up to date. I have also tried reinstalling my OS but my code 10 error always returns. When I opened up my laptop to see if the card is the cables are loose (which they weren't), I noticed that my wireless card is the Broadcom 4309. 

I would also like to ask exactly what order am I suppose to have all of my drivers installed? I am almost positive that I am not installing them correctly. I have seen websites that say to install the Intel Chipset and O2 Smart Card first and then the NSS and so on.

Dell :: Bad Wi-Fi Signal From Router Belkin On Inspiron 17R 5720

Dec 25, 2012

I just got a brand new laptop (Windows 8) for my girlfriend as a Xmas gift and I'm having issues with the wifi signal.

If I stay near the router, no problems. But if I go 10-15 feet away, then the signal is almost inexistant... 1 or 2 bars. 20 feet away then it's 0 to 1 bar and losing connection.That router never gave us any problem before. Another laptop (Inspiron 1525 on Vista) is running correctly with a good signal just besides. An HP is also working fine at the same location. And 2 other ones as well... (Yes I know I have many PCs... ;)

I installed the latest drivers for the Belkin router just in case it's due to Windows 8 but that ain't fixed the issue.

Dell :: New Inspiron 1764 - Low Signal Connecting To Wireless Networks?

Jun 28, 2010

I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop that I received on the 25th of June. It is "replacing" a Dell Inspiron 9100 that has gotten to be too slow and bulky for my needs. For support purposes, both laptops are running on Windows 7.Overall, I love my new Inspiron 1764. However, I have noticed seriously degraded connection/signal strength with the wireless card (Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-card) compared to my Inspiron 9100 (Dell Wireless 1350 WLAN Mini-PCI card).

In areas of my house that my 9100 can get full signal strength (5 bars), my new 1764 is getting 2 or fewer bars. This behavior is also not limited to only my house, as I have tested it at my job and in an area less than 10 feet away from the wireless router, I have "Internet connectivity problems".

I tried twice this morning to speak with Dell support. The first person I spoke at least initiated a DellConnect session with me so that they could check some of my settings and such (however, why they went twice into my sharing settings I could not determine since they have absolutely nothing to do with signal strength.)

Unfortunately, I was disconnected from the session when I went to an area that had less signal than right next to my wireless router.I then got back on chat support with Dell and received another technician to speak with. I explained my problem, told them that I was in a DellConnect session with the other technician, and they looked up my support contract.They then told me that my warranty does not cover software issues and referred me to the software department and told me it would be an extra charge. I told them that I did not believe it to be a software issue in any way, shape, or form. They told me that it must be a setting issue. I have since spent several hours scouring the internet forums on Dell and other websites checking people who have had similar issues. Some of their issues were admittedly from software settings, but I have still yet to find anything that indicates to me that I have an incorrect software setting.

As of this writing, I am standing in my kitchen, typing on my Inspiron 9100 with a full 5 bars, while my Inspiron 1764 sits next to me with a measly 2 bars, and I am literally standing 7 feet above the room that houses my Linksys WRTU54G-TM router.Personally, I suspect a faulty wireless card, but how do I convince Dell to hear my case and replace it rather than trying to bilk me for unneeded software support?

Way To See Signal Strength % On Windows 7?

Jan 10, 2013

Is there a way to view my exact signal strength(say in % I guess) with my laptop running windows 7?I had software for the wireless card in my tower pc which gave a signal strength of 70%. I'm curious if my laptop is getting a similar strength since they are close but a few feet apart. Or where in my house gets the best signal other than just showing low-excellent.

Wireless Low Connectivity / Signal Strength

May 16, 2011

I have three desktops and one lap. I have TWC RCA modem and cisco linksys router and two usb adapters for wireless connection. situation is this: the modem and router are at one end of the house and one of the pc's is located at the other end. that one gets low signal strength only one or two bars and the internet works slowly to a point it feels like i'm on dial up. I've had people tell me to upgrade the router from wrt45g to n which I did to an e1000, but I still have the same issue. also was told to move the modem and router to the center of the house. but twc says that would not correct the issue.

Something about dividing the mpbs and the farther the pc the lower the signal. so, guess my question would be 1. does that sound correct to you. would it be better to move the modem and router? would it be better to have the one in question wired in? I did try an extender by netgear, which gave more bars/signal strength but but then would not connect to the internet. but I did that before I got newer linksys router. not sure if maybe I should try the extender again, but then the geek squad, when they came an set up the new router, said that it would probably do the same thing.

How To Increase Wifi Signal Strength

Jun 3, 2012

I have computers scattered across our home, and in many areas it is not feasible to run ethernet cable. At one location (less than 30 feet away) but through multiple walls, I can barely connect to any POS (I have two). I added a stand alone antenna extension with long antennas on both the router and the WiFi card on the PC, however, this made zero improvement.What should I be looking to purchase to increase the signal strength? I've already tried different routers.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Getting Low Signal Strength / Speed?

Mar 25, 2011

I have my DIR-655 router set up on the first floor because my son's tricked out gaming rig is in the basement while our office is on the 2nd floor.  On the router, I tweaked settings to give him priority speed when he is gaming.  Although he complains about his speeds and connectivity.  In our 2nd floor office -- which is one floor and 30 ft through a wall away -- my signal strength varies from 45% to 70%.  There are times when neighbor's networks show greater strength than mine does.  I live in a house so the physical distance is much greater plus there are two exterior walls, no matter where their router is placed.  The adapter in the office computer is a D-Link DWA-556.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Low Signal Strength In Room

Mar 16, 2012

My question has to do with the low signal strength of my dir-655.  I have it set up in the second bedroom of my apartment.  When I am sitting in my living room (about 30 feet away) it's really hard to pull in a signal of more than one bar on my phone, or two bars on my wife's kindle fire and will often drop the signal all together.  But, if I search for networks, tons of other routers come up with excellent signal strength from our neighbors.  Is there something I need to know about expanding the signal strength?

How To Weaken WRT54gl Signal Strength

Mar 20, 2011

Is there a way to weaken the wrt54g signal strength? I have a client that has one of these setup and they say it's too strong and people can get it from too far away. Instead of locking it down so only certain people can get onto it like I asked they want to limit the strength of the signal so it only reaches two rooms. Is this possible?

Wireless Router - Low Signal Strength Outside Home

May 12, 2012

My router has wireless capability and the signal inside my home is pretty strong so I have no compaints there. The problem comes in when I use my computer which is located in a shed outside. I get a signal maybe 35% of the time, and even then it's weak. I want to use an access point to allow the computer in the shed to aquire internet access. Do I need to hardwire the access point or can I do it wirelessly? Would a repeater be more effective and which config would be best in that case?
