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?

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.

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-825 :: Increase Wifi Signal Strength With Software?

Apr 5, 2013

Even though I put high gain antennas on my routers which extended the range of good signal immensely, I wish to try to get even better signal strength also.   When using manual configuration mode on the router, I have set the WiFi power level to 100% (default level).  Is there a way to increase that level beyond 100% and "overdrive" the signal?  I tried to input a number >100% and that was not accepted.

I know this is possible if I go to dd-wrt, and possibly with open-wrt, which I prefer not to do for various reasons, not the least of which is that I have both a Rev. A1 and a Rev. B1 router (Rev. A1 is not supposed to support dd-wrt).  I also know that increasing the power will make the router run hotter.  I am willing to risk it as I monitor the temperature regularly.

Has anyone ever tried to do this or, have the people who want this just gone to dd-wrt?  From the dd-wrt forum it appears that the DIR-825 router in Rev. B1 is not very user friendly to dd-wrt.  After 3 years the code is still flaky.  I would prefer not to use it, if possible.

WiFi To IPad - Increase The Signal Strength For A Longer Distance?

Jun 12, 2011

I use a Linksys WRT54GR router. I recently bought an iPad, and I generally use it in a room that is on the other side of the house and through many walls. When it works, it works nice. But recently, my signal has been weak, and is often dropped. Pages load slowly, or not at all after getting a could not connect to server or whatever message. However, this isnt a huge problem for my laptops when used in this room. I dont believe it is the iPad that is faulty because my iTouch also experiences difficulty sometimes. I need a way to increase the signal strength for a longer distance. I looked at a repeater, but im not quite sure what it is and how to set one up, or where to buy one.

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.

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?

Netflix Streaming - Low Wireless Router Signal Strength?

Mar 31, 2012

I have a wireless network in my home, mainly for internet access via any of the 3 or 4 machines we may be using. Normally, there's not a problem with normal surfing, email checking, youtube, etc.My wireless router is a Linksys WRT300N, and the wireless adapter card in my desktop is a D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G510 Wireless PCI Adapter. In my previous home, the router was in the very same room as my desktop, and had no problems to speak of with this setup streaming Netflix. Now, however, I'm set up in an older home, and the router is removed from my desktop by a few walls and tight rooms. I've noticed that my network status icon on the bottom right of my desktop seems to always show "Signal Strength: Very Low".I like to use my desktop sometimes to stream Netflix. My Netflix streaming sometimes goes OK, but typically it just freezes and shows the Loading bar, and sometimes doesn't really start back. It is so bad sometimes, that I am not willing to wait it out, because I know from this experience that even if it starts back up, it will just freeze again. The video is not downloading and caching fast enough.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Low Signal Strength With Wrt54g?

Oct 16, 2011

My wireless router has been spotty since my cable company installed a new modem for cable internet.  I have powercycled several times, downloaded new firmware, rebooted and am still having problems.  Lately when I do finally get on the internet with a wireless device, the signal strength is very low.  It is low on my iphone, on my Mac laptop and also on my Samsung Bluray player.  Lately a window keeps popping up when I am trying to watch netflix that states my band width is too low, even though it has been working fine for 2 months.  Is my router outdated?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Set Up Two E4200 To Improve Signal Strength?

Sep 24, 2012

Currently I'm using one e4200 (v1) as my main router in the house. The wireless coverage downstairs is perfect, but upstairs the signal is weak. To improve this I thought about adding the WAP610N as an access point to my network. But this device gets quite some negative reviews ... Thus I was thinking why not add another e4200 (v2) to my network? The price difference is not that big, especially compared to other simultaneous dual band access points. So my question is, would following scenario work?

- first e4200, connected to my ISP, acting as a router, using both the 2.4 as 5 ghz band (basically my current situation)

- second e4200, connected (via UTP cable) to the first e4200, in bridge mode

- second e4200 also using both 2.4 and 5 ghz band, using the same SSID, security etc but a different channel
So when moving a laptop for example from downstairs to upstairs, automatically the router/access point with the strongest signal would be used.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 - How To Improve Wi-Fi Signal Strength

Nov 26, 2010

I have configured a new LinkSys e3000 as as wireless router in our house.I have left the configuration as default (only secured it and turned on the DHCP server).I have only turned on the 2,4 GHz network ( because the 5GH had an even shorter range).Everything works and all my devices can connect to the router and access the internet.However i find the signal strenght of the router to be very poor.Already in the next room it drops to 60%. And in some rooms on the 1st floor the signal drops completly.This happens not even 20m away from the router in an ordinary "family house".Is there a setting somewhere which could increase the signal strength ?I noticed that the router has no antenna, can one be bought and attached so the signal increases ?The firmware version is 1.0.02 and i found a newer on your web 1.0.03. How to improve the signal strength?

2x Asus RT-N66Us - How To Get Good Signal Strength From Next Door Router

Sep 12, 2012

A friend has 2 Asus RT-N66U's for the purpose of extending wifi range from her small companies shop to her house which is next door from each other.

from the house I can connect to the first router via wifi with a decent signal strength but what I need to do is backhaul from the other router via wifi and then have another wifi network in the house.

can this be done with just the 2 routers, or should I be looking for a cheap point to point setup and 2 separate routers?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Cisco E4200 - How To Improve Signal Strength

Oct 29, 2012

I have a two story house with a basement.  Right now I have a Cisco Linksys E4200 router on the second floor in one of the bedrooms.  I have a DLink GamerLouge 4500 in the basement.  Both systems have the same SSID and are running on different channels.  Computers connect to the appropriate one automatically.  At least assuming that's what's happening.I am getting limited connectivity on the first floor in the kitchen and family room.  Dining room, right by the second floor stairs is fine.  All the bathrooms are dead zones.  Note I have thick travertine tiles on the walls in the bathrooms so may inhibit signals.  Trying to figure out the optimal solution for getting the house setup so everywhere has at least decent signals. I have alot of iPad and laptop devices floating around the house so wireless is key.  Note I have wired plugs with Cat5e all over the house to a central hub in the basement which is where the DLink router sits.  Thoughts on how to improve my signal strength?  Especially in the farther reaching bedrooms and the first floor

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GH Signal Strength Is Extremely Poor?

Oct 7, 2011

I have a WRT54gh, and the signal strength is extremely poor. Full strength at about 15 centimeters, Then drops to 50% at 50 centimeters. By 1.5 meters, the signal is extremely weak or not visible. Have updated to the latest firmware, factory reset and power cycled. There are no other wireless networks or devices that would provide interference Have experimented with channels, thresholds, transmit type, encrypted/open, intervals etc..No luck. Due to signal dropping off so quickly it seems like a transmit strength issue rather than an issue that can be solved in the menu. I'm wondering if there's a way I can console log-in to the Linux kernel and check the transmit strength and perhaps bump it up by a few DB? It's out of warranty so a solution involving opening the case is also acceptable.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 Loses Signal Strength And Transmission Speed?

Aug 30, 2012

I have been disappointed by the range of the EA4500 compared to previous routers, but I am most puzzled by it's behavior. I may get an "excellent" connection close to the router (one room away) and speeds up to 65 Mps, but after a few minutes of surfing the web the signal strength and speed can drop substantially.

The problem is the worst at a distance (one floor down in our house, maybe 30 feet away in total) where the signal strength may start at "good" and a speed of perhaps 30 Mps, but then after 3-4 minutes drops to "poor" and maybe 5 Mps.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Signal Strength Bounce After Firmware Upgrade

Dec 10, 2012

Have two WRT54G Wireless Routers.
-One WRT54G ver. 6, Firmware Version v1.028
-One WRT54G ver. 6, Firmware Version v2.x 
With the WRT54G ver. 6, Firmware Version v1.028.When I ran the android app WiFi Analyzer, I get mixed results.On my Samsung Galaxy S3, I saw my signal on Channel 2, and others around me (two on Channel 6 and two on Channel 11).On my ASUS Transformer Prime TFT201 I see the same signals, but my router signal bounces continously between the baseline (-100dBm?) and about -35dBm.
Plugged in the WRT54G ver. 2, Firmware Version v2.x  Channel 8.Hooked it up and got good steady signal strength. It Had 'WPA - Shared Key' but did not have the 'WPA - Personal' that was on the ver. 6. So, I had to go and screw things up. I've upgraded this to Firmware Version: v4.21.5 and guess what? I now have 'WPA - Personal'. I also have a signal is bouncing on BOTH units.
On my ASUS, I can see both routers. The ver. 2 AND the ver. 6 are bouncing between baseline and -35dBm, in unison. Apprently something in the ASUS does not like the later Firmwares.On my Samsung I can see the two signals - the ver. 2 on Channel 8 is stable as a rock and the ver. 6 on Channel 2 is also bouncing, but at a much slower rate! Running a PC hardwired to the ver. 2 - I get 5.34 Mb/s Download and 0.47 Mb/s upload (yeah, my Internet sucks!) Running through the ASUS/WiFi to the ver. 2 -  I get 2.43 Mb/s Down and 0.65 Mb/s Up.Running through the Samsung/WiFi to the ver. 2 - I get 5.07 Mb/s Down and 1.07 Mb/s Up.
