I have my Westell model 7500 in the barn office. I need the wireless internet in the apartment that was built in the front of the barn. The living room, where I need the signal for Roku, Kindle, and laptop, is approximately 60 to 70 feet from the modem. For awhile I had a low signal strength and I could use the internet but now it is nonexistent in the apartment. The Westell was provided by my internet supplier. How do I boost the signal so that I can get it in my apartment?
Is there any way that I can boost the WiFi signal on my laptop? It is a HP Pavilion dv7, originally had Windows Vista x64, but I wiped the HD and installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and went to the HP website to get ALL of the drivers that I needed for this specific laptop.
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.
I have a wireless router that rests across the house next to the modem. The signal is too weak to reach to the other side of the house. Is there a way to boost the signal so I can get wifi from across the house or any other way to get an internet connection without several fifty foot wires going across the house?
I can never get consistent wifi in my home. I don't know if its because of the concrete walls with rebar inside them or what, but after two rooms I get literally zero wireless signal with my E3000 or WRT54G running boosted signals. Is there some router I can buy that just blasts the strongest signal possible?
I've expanded wireless internet using WDS: routers, but only with 1 boost.Is there a limit on how many times I can use WDS routers to boost a signal AND get ethernet connections out of the receiving side?
I run a small motel and having trouble with Wifi signal reaching the 2nd floor rooms sufficiently. I have heard of the terminology and it's quite daunting... you have wifi booster, access point, range expanders, repeaters, bridges...etc. Do I need one of booster/expanders/repeaters for each floor? The property is a L shape, the router is in the office on the short side.

I used to have a DLINK router which covered my whole house with its Wifi signal. After upgrading to the SRP541W router, only the very close vicinity of the router has any acceptable level of signal to use devices. I seriously need to improve WIFI range to accomodate my small business. I asked the Live chat technician and the answer was "This device does not support external antennae" and then silence. Okay it is not supported but what I am looking for is a solution, not a dead end.
For example, is there a cisco repeater/extender that I could deploy that works with the SRP541W router? Any experience adding one long cable and putting one antenna at a different location of the house?
How to successfully increas the signal range of the WRT310n? I live in a huge old place and the signal drops to one bar (dial-up speed) about 40 feet across the building. However, at the room before that (maybe 30 feet) my Apple Mac book gets great signal and it's no problem. I need to connect the Mac and 2 PC laptops wirelessly.I'm not sure whether to try a signal booster, set up another access point (or how to do that anyway), or what? Running a cable is unfortunately not an option.I also have a WRT300n (which was replaced this weekend with the 310n). Not sure which one really is better, but the 300n router's range didn't even make it as far as the 310n does. (There was weak signal, no active bars.) Someone suggested adding a more powerful antenna to that router instead?
I have Att internet services and the modem I received from them has WiFi with it. The signal that it produces is very weak. I was curious if there is any way to use my E3000 to boost or repeat the signal so WiFi will extend through out the house.
I work on an HP desktop that used to be able to connect to the wireless network. We moved offices and and I am unable to connect to the new wireless network.The network used to appear but had no signal strength. Now the network does not even appear.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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?
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?
Am running WIN 7 64 BIT and have today installed a BT Home Hub 3. WiFi signal is very poor. (1 1/2 bars only) Have Belkin Wireless G Card in computer and previously used it with Netgear DG834G router with very good signal strength.Do I now need to disable the Belkin card in order for the BT Hub to produce a decent signal?
Region : India Model : TL-MR3220 Hardware Version : V2 Firmware Version : ISP : Reliance Net Connect
I called Customer Care and confirmed that MR3220 supports ZTE AC2738 Model even though it is not there in Compatible list. But when i actually configured- It is showing as Modem Identified but signal strenth is showing Zero.
I have connected my DIR-825 to my cable modem through the network ports and completed the configuration. Everything works fine, I am able to connect through wireless to the DIR-825 and access the internet. I had to do this as my cable modem is also wireless and does not allow another router to be connected through the internet connection, but I want to get a better signal stength than the cable modem.When I am not wireless connected, I can see the two bands at full strength in the view available wireless networks screen. As soon as I connect to either the 2.4 channel or the 5 channel, the signal strenth of the channel I'm connected to drops to horrible, while the non-connected one still shows at full strength.i tried disabling one of the channels, but as soon as I connect to the other, that channels signal strength still drops to horrible.
I have purchased two WAP200 units to act as access point and repeater. AP and repeater functionality works fine.
The issue I am having is extremely poor signal from both units. Even when very close to the WAP200, I get poor signal quality. The range before loosing connection is only a few feet.
I'm using the antennas that came with the box and have tried multiple placements both in my house and in other locations. I have also tried changing several of the configurations without any effect on the signal strength. Older D-link and Linksys routers provide good reception to most of my house from the same location.
I have two AIR-AP350 SERIES AP's. I am receiveing wifi from my friends house a mile away across a valley with clear line of sight. I think there is a problem with one of these units because when doing a link test one unit shows 14% signal strength on either antenna from the remote router and the second unit shows 6% on the left hand antenna and 1% on the right.
We just recently invested in 5 RV180Ws to serve as replacements for the aging routers in 5 of our shops. Additionally, we bought them because they seem to offer robust WiFi options for customers/guests, such as multiple SSIDs and restricting 'public' traffic to it's own VLAN.
Straight out of the box we updated them to the new firmware, 18.104.22.168, set up 2 SSIDs (one hidden for employee use, and one broadcast for customer use), and plugged them in.
Everything seemed to be going great until we walked to the other side of the shop and watched the signal drop off almost completely. These are fairly small premises and the router can't be more than 8 metres from where the customers are, and yet the signal is so weak that it's almost unusable.
For reference, we have the WiFi running in B/G/N mixed mode to maximise compatibility. with the channel and width set to their defaults (Auto and 20MHz, I believe).
Moving the routers is only semi-viable; these are meant to serve as replacements for existing IT equipment, and the cabling situation means they can only really go in the office space near the rear of the shops. Also, it simply shouldn't be necessary; WiFi should extend well past 8 metres without issue.
In our project we are building a smartphone application dat determines the locations of persons in a building, using Wifi access points.Using 3 accespoint we are calculating the overlap of 3 circles.Today we measured the signal strength and found out that it changes around alot.So we dont really know if our measurements are right.
We would like to know what the RSSI strengths are of the following access point per meter.Cisco Aironet 1140 2.4 ghz
I am using a desktop PC with a wireless USB stick attached in order to connect to the internet via a wireless router, however, although it states that I am connected with excellent signal strength, it continues to show a warning sign over the wireless connection signal bars ON THE DESKTOP TRAY ONLY. I can't surf the web on my desktop or on my IPAD through the wireless connection in which both devices detect. I have a Sitecom wireless router.
