I have my router and modem in an upstairs office. I get terrific signal strenth and wifi connections throughout 80% of my home. I would like to shore up that remaining 20%.
I cannot realistically move my EA4500 to a "more central" locationBefore purchasing this router, I used a netgear + netgear extender. They worked horrifically together along with my wifi devices - they dropped signals every 4-5 minutes, even with bare-bones data usage. (I've had no connectivity issues, thus far, with the Linksys product)My home has two levels - no basement, no crazy concrete walls or anything. I figured on installing an extender OR another EA4500 downstairs to extend my signal. How two EA4500's work together, if anyone has a similar set up, compared to how (and what model) an extender may work to boost my signal distance in this situation. Primarily, in that "20%" deadzone, I need to use an iPad / iPhone - nothing that would consume tons of bandwidth.
I've been using the WRT310N and noticed that the range is quite poor--I've noticed this in two different houses.I've tried using an old repeater but it is a G repeater so it seems to actually make things worse i.e. a remote device will work slightly better with an unrepeated N signal than a repeated G (router is a in mixed mode).
I have a cisco WAG120N with me.wifi range is very less, means my devices won't catch the wifi even if they are 5 meters away from the router. Ways to increase the wifi range of this router. I dont want to use any repeater or any such stuff, just want to achieve a far more range with te existing device.
I have a Cisco-Linksys WRT310N V2 Wireless-N Gigabit Router and was wondering if there is a setting (which I could not find in the admin control panel) to increase the range to catch internet connection. My house is large, and one portion has a bad connection to it because the router is sitting upstairs on the other end. If there is no setting, is there a external add on I can get to increase the internet range?
I have a WAP4410N access point. In the datasheet, it shows that the Antenna Gain in dBi as 2. I need to increase the range of the access point by replacing the antenna with a 7dB one. I would like to know the maximum dBi supported by this access point.
We live in an area with no Internet available. We are currently using a Motorola Bionic cell phone thru Verizon as a personal hotspot for our Internet. We get fair to good 4G coverage but the wifi signal does not make it out of the room the phone is in. Is there a way to increase the range of the personal hotspot signal
I just moved into my new house a week ago and I have some dead spots in my house. In my small old apartment I had a Linksys EA4500 that got most of the work done. Do you know if it is possible to connect that router (or another it you think it is better) to my xfinity box (router, cable, telephone thing) or should i buy something else to extend the range or rebroadcast the signal? like the Amped Wireless SR20000G? willing to spend around $200
I have a WAP54G and the signal strength and range is not that great; unit manufactured in 04/2007. I have firmware version 3.04 dated Oct 31, 2005. Customer support is suggesting I upgrade the firmware to 3.04.03 but I am sure it will really do anything to the signal strength and range. Also, they suggested I download new drivers for my desktop wireless card.
I have a couple of computers that are out of range of my router so I came up with a unique solution. I have an old laptop with 2 wireless cards that I put halfway between. It is working but I have a few oddities. First of all, the out of range computer is connected to another wireless router that several laptops and another (wired) PC connect to. It has ICS (Windows XP internet connect sharing) enabled. This rules out using ICS on the laptop as 2 pc's would have the address of 192.168.0.1.
Wireless network is functioning as my other devices connect to it properly. Been using the laptop in question for years without this problem and it seems to have just spontaneously lost the ability to identify the available network[CODE]
I've a Dell laptop with Windows XP. I was able to connect to my own secured wireless network. Suddenly no networks are found anymore where my other laptops are able to find wireless networks. Repairing the wireless network connection does not resolve the problem.how I can find my wireless connections again?
We frequently camp at campgrounds that offer free WiFi, but many campsites are on the fringe of receiving a signal. Is there anything I can add to my laptop to increase receiving range- ie usb adapter with antenna?
I am a university student and my building is made of concrete so I get pretty spotty wireless (lag at 9000+ ping on games?!). To improve my connection quality I was recommended the Alfa AWUS036NHR USB network adapter [URL]. The adapter itself works marvelously but here's the problem: when I install the adapter, the existing wireless drivers on my laptop fail and I cannot use the internal laptop NIC even when the adapter is unplugged. It says the device is ready but does not detect any networks. When I reinstall the NIC drivers, the adapter doesn't work anymore.Device manager still shows both drivers installed and running but the corresponding NIC/adapter won't detect any networks.
What I have tried:
-Disabling the other driver, reinstalling other driver -Disabling a functioning driver to attempt to get the other device to work -Trying different versions of the drivers--a longshot I know
Internal NIC:: Realtek RTL8723A Wireless Lan 802.11n USB 2.0 External adapter: Alfa AWUS036NHR using Realtek RTL8192C USB 802.11B/G/N 300M Wireless NIC drivers for Windows 8 Laptop: Lenovo Yoga 13 (i7 version), no ethernet port available, Windows 8 Pro
can I use both of them (not at the same time) without having to reinstall drivers each and every time I switch?
The inbuilt wifi card on my 1521 laptop has lost it's range, I now have to be within a few feet of my BT hub or else the wifi signal keeps dropping out, have checked it not the hub by connecting another PC through wifi. I've taken various numbers from the original card but none of them matches up with the part No's on the Dell website, of the three numbers on the card I think the Dell P/No is DP-N OPC559.
I have an E1000 router in my office with a cat5 cable going to my daughters bedroon thru several doors and around some corners. She (recently moved back in) has an E1000 router also.I need to know how to use both routers to increase the wireless signal in her bedroom.I have not tried anything yet.The router in my office is configured with an address of 192.168.2.1.
I am considering deploying several of these for our church to provide internet access. When reading the manual, I found on the last few pages that the device only supports a max of 63 users at a time. Is that correct? If so, any way to add more ?
i am using wlc 4402 with a mgt ip 172.26.150.x/24 and ap manager ip 172.26.150.x/24, my all ap get the ip address from dhcp . currently in dhcp server 172.26.150.3 to 254 dhcp scope is configured. at mysite some devices are configured like ipad,iphone or galaxy tab with mac binding in dhcp server. now this pool is almost full. i have a policy configured for these devices for mac binding is done in DHCP. to increase pool what are the changes i need to do in wlc. what are the changes i need to do in dhcp server . is policy made for mac binding in dhcp server will get affected by this ?
I purchased and installed a new EA4500 wireless router. At the same time i had a new Voip phone system installed as well which i'm having issues with. The main issue is that my phones communicate with the service every 240 seconds....the issue is that my NAT timeout is below that 240 threshold. Thus my phones go in and out constantly. increasing the NAT Timeout.
We have a new e1000 router that was having trouble reaching the TV for Netflix movie streaming. Too many walls and too much distance. A simple solution was to direct the signals from the router by placing aluminum foil behind the router so all the signal was going towards the TV rather than in an 360 degree circle. Now the streaming works great! After the movie is done I remove the foil and everything looks just like it should.
I have an integrated 881W with a built in 801 access point. I'm interested in increasing the range of my AP. I'm interested in considering any configuration changes while still maintaining support for N. I've included a copy of my running config.As well, I've heard of high gain antennas. I'm using the default antennas that came with the 881W. If there are better antennas that I can buy to increase my range, I'm interested in considering that as well.
if Linksys will be increasing the size limitation of the E4200 USB storage devices? Will the next firmware allow larger drive sizes? I only bought the thing to share via the router my digital content that is stored on an 8TB external device. What is the perpose to the limit in the first place? Is this a hardware or software limitation of the device?
