Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Increase Range Using EA4500

Dec 5, 2012

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Increase Range In WRT310N?

Aug 12, 2011

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).

Cisco Linksys WRT310N V2 Wireless-N Gigabit Router - Increase Internet Range?

Jan 13, 2013

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?

How To Increase Wifi Range With Xfinity Box/router

Dec 9, 2012

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

Linksys Access Point :: Increase Signal Strength And Range Of WAP54G?

Jan 19, 2009

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.

Use Laptop To Extend Wireless Range?

Oct 27, 2011

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

Using Alfa AWUS036NHR As A Range Extender For Laptop?

Feb 15, 2013

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

My hardware:

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 - How To Increase Signal Strength

Nov 29, 2010

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.

Cisco Wireless :: Aironet 1142 - Increase Web-based GUI Timeout?

Sep 28, 2012

The GUI times out after 60 seconds.
Since the the "exec-timeout" setting has a default of 10 minutes (if I'm not mistaken), I don't think I could change the timeout value with that command.
Under the "Association" tab of the GUI, there is an "Activity Timeout" subtab and settings for 5 device classes, all set at 60 seconds.
I would guess the setting in question can be configured here. Is the client station device class what I'm after?

Cisco Wireless :: Increase Coverage For AP801 (integrated 881W)?

Nov 9, 2012

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.
