Home Network :: Increasing Network Card Wifi Signal?
Jan 30, 2013
In the bottom floor there are three computers, an iMac computer that receives an average wireless Internet signal, desktop computer and a laptop.I want to take care of the desktop computer and buy a network card, the next card:TP-Link TL-WN951NNow it has three antennas, each of its reception range is 2 dbiI should buy three of the 10 dbi antennas and connect them to the network card?It will give a good solution strong wireless signal and good speed?
im using microsoft network monitor to monitor all traffic in and out (public) and mirrored ports for local traffic, except wireless traffic as its connecting to the router. I want to use a wifi NIC on the server to broadcast, so wireless clients can connect via the server and obtain DNS and DHCP etc from there, therefor, monitoring all traffic.
Here's the layout: Cable modem in the basement. Several devices in which I'd prefer a wired connection in the basement. Upstairs on the 1st and 2nd floor of the house are many devices in which wifi is fine or preferred.Here's the problem: As you might guess, wifi is weak upstairs and certainly on the patio and 2nd floor. I have an access point upstairs that I've experimented with but it is flaky.
I want to make a quite massive "home" wireless network. I wanna get 2 laptops, a desktop, a PS3 and some sound wireless boxes in my wireless network. Therefore, I wanna test the received signal level from my wireless router on each room of my house to check if its worth getting a new router or not.So, do you know the name of softwares that do this? Check up the signal level every place the computer is? I know this can be done with 2G, 3G networks as I work with it, but I got no idea with Wi Fi
I run a certain program in my PC and I need to make its data available to an iPhone app.I would like to broadcast it over WIFI from the laptop.How can I set up a simple wifi network so the iPhone can connect as described?I was thinking of wireless router connected directly to the PC.
My Wifi network has a wpa2 password that is a random string of characters and numbers and yet last month a rogue IP Address kept popping up on my DNS list. It has to be coming from my neighbor who's bedroom is about 15 feet away from my router. So unless someone is sitting out on my front lawn to do this then it must be him.I've been looking for software that will notify me when a connection my router is attempted and kudos if it also asks my permission first would be great.There are wifi packet sniffers out there like Cain&Abel, Airsnort, that sort of thing but I am not quite savvy enough nor do I want to turn this into a complicated hobby but just need a basic warningin case something gets past my passwords again
Our Motel has a new CenturyLink DSL Wifi Modem at the office desk, and I'm trying to get wifi to all customers via (3) Linksys WRT110 wfi routers that are in the attic. How do you configure the routers so all put a wifi signal out with the same network name ? I keep getting limited connections & etc...
Sending WiFi signal about 1/4 mile from my home to where my daughter lives so she can use her Samsung Galaxy2 Tablet on WiFi.There are homes, condos and trees in between us, so it is not a clear path.So far this is what I have done.I am using a modem and a Netgear WNR834B Wireless N Router.I connected a Hawkins Laptop Extender (HWREN Wireless 150N Mini Extender * single antenna outlet) into the router and connected a WiFi cable from the Hawkins to my tower outside above my roof and have attached a 10 dbi gain Trendnet antenna (omnidirectional) to the cable.But still the WiFi signal doesn't seem to be very strong at all when I test with my phone.And obviously, my daughters tablet does not see my router when she has her tablet search for WiFi.I also tried a 14dbi WIfi ASUS directional antenna and basically came up with the same outcome... she could not see the WiFi signal..My daughter lives in a condo and is not capable or allowed to install any outside antenna system whatsoever.
i have a home Wlan network with a TP Link WR541G wireless router, 1 pc connected via RJ45 to the router and have another 2 inactive Wlan pci cards that also recognize the network. on the other hand i have my Gigabyte W576V laptop with a specially added GN-WS50G mini pcie card i installed. now for over a year or so everything was fine and the new card on the laptop recognized the network and connected butifully. now i can see any other wireless netweok around except the original home tplink network. my E72 nokia recognizes home network and every other devide except my laptop.
i have been looking through router settings and special local configuration on the laptop but coudnt find anything.
i dont remember installing any special driver or software in the time it stoped seeing my wlan netwrok. the laptop is 3ft-10ft in direct line to the antena and just nothing..
Neighbor agreed to let me use his WiFi connection only if it requires no changes or disruptions on his side. His signal is broadcast with a wireless router. I can currently see his signal broadcast on my laptop, but it's very weak.I have a omnidirectional antennae already mounted outside my house with a clear sight of view. It has a cable attached to it that terminates with a N connector inside my building.I need to connect to his signal (there are several being broadcast in the area) and then forward it to my router. My router will then provide connectivity to my home network.What hardware do I need between the outdoor omnidirectional antennae (that terminates with a N connector) and the wireless router inside my building?
have a home network setup that works completely fine everywhere in the house except one room. That room happens to be my son's room that has his Xbox 360 in it. He wants to play online but I cant get a signal back in there and if I do it is extremely weak. I have a linksys E2500 router connected to my cable modem that is wired ot one computer and then my 2 laptops connect to the wireless from that router. The Playstation 3 that is about 15 feet away works fine as well. All our ipods and iPhones work well too. It is only his bedroom where we run into trouble with any of these devices. I actually just upgraded to the E2500 about 2 months ago, so I have a Motorola WR850G sitting around. Can I use this closer to his room to lengthen my signal or how can I proceed to get him a better signal
I can't connect connect to my home wireless network. It says I am connected but none of my browsers will load anything. I can connect to other wireless networks that i have access to.I can connect if i plug into the router directly
it shows that it is Online getting an Excellent Connection thru my Home Network... I go Online using Firefox with it at home.. stays up for a few minutes .. can get onto the internet...then loses the ability to stay connected.... it still states it's Connected though ... kind of baffling... like something is timing out then blocking it...I tried shutting down my AVG Anti-Virus.. also shut down Windows Firewall... it still continues to lose the Connection while stating it's connected getting a good signal... both of these are configured correctly as far as I can seeI've re-installed my Wireless driver thru the Acer Recovery Management included on the Netbook.. still no good..
ok i have setup a subnet on my uncles network on which i am running a domain with server 2008. i am using a dlink di 624 router and wanted to know if i upgraded to a 300mbps router would this increase the bandwidth within my network?i know i am limited to what i am receiving from my uncle who is also limited to what he is receiving from the ISP. im not worried about internet speed. i want to increase client to server speed for both lan and wireless.
I am researching power adapters versus range extenders to bring the best signal to a new home theater so I can stream Netflix. I don't do much else (gaming etc...) and am not a tech person. I just want to enjoy movies in an area of my house that gets little or no signal. Didi I waste my money buying smart? Can I still do an ethernet connection off the power adapter? Should I put another router there instead--- off the adapter- so I can use the theaters wifi?
At my workplace, we have high speed internet (dsl). We don't have Wifi or a full time tech guy at the moment. I was thinking about proposing it since I generally handle most of the technical items at my job, but wanted to verify a few things first. First of all.. on a work network.. is it any more difficult than your average home network to set up a wifi router? Anything special I should know before attempting to set one up?
I've tried restarting my Kindle. I've tried resetting my router. I've reset my Kindle. I can use it to connect to open wi-fi networks. My computer (win7) and phone (htc desire) can connect to the wi-fi network. MAC filtering is disabled. Router is a Buffalo WCR-GN
I recently got my laptop fixed after it being out of commission for about a year (it turns out there was just too much dust collecting in it) and when I got home and tried to connect to my wifi network, I didn't have internet access. I received a message that said I had sucessfully connected to my network but it was only a local connection - no internet. It also shows up as "Unidentified Network." This is peculiar to me because my boyfriend's laptop is able to connect to the internet wirelessly just fine, and I am currently using the wifi on my iPhone. I ran the ipconfig and several ping tests in cmd and used a wifi inspector.
I have my computer with me and I can not get internet access using my friends wifi at her home. when I attempt to join their network I enter the password and it says I am connected and also says unidentified network. I go anywhere else and can use my computer with all other wifi networks.
How to use my iPhone 5 using 3G or LTE to connect to my home wifi network so I can control things like my airconditioner (using the supplied app) which is also connected to the home wifi network?I have a WHS a Windows 8 machine and an XP Pro machine. I am using a Linksys WAG320N Router/Modem.
lost wifi access thru local (home) connection. can connect thru public network. my grandma during last visit accidentally changed the network to her laptop. Have tried to reset netgear wnr2000v1 with pin in back. turned off and waited and turned back on again--no success. have tried to set up new network--see the network listed but no internet access available. have modem/router from comcast. My laptop is Acer Aspire 5733 with Lan Broadcom and wireless lan atheros.
how to setup a home wifi network with windows 7?I want to access internet of the main laptop (has internet using a dongle)for my other laptop which has no direct internet connection at the moment, but wifi enable.
setting up a single home network in my apartment that will be able to connect to and use 2 separate wifi internet connections to provide stability and reliable bandwidth for a home network.
Situation: I have recently moved into an apartment complex that has 2 separate wifi connections that are available to the residents free of charge. (yes i am authorized to use both) I do have the option of paying for and having my own personal DSL line installed but I would much rather use the free wifi and not have the monthly bill.
The Problem: My apartment is located far enough away from each of the routers (One wifi at each end of the building and I am in the middle) that my signal strength is poor most of the time and sometimes heavy traffic on one wifi requires that I disconnect and connect to the other. Wifi A is farther and has very low signal and low or no connectivity. Wifi B has good signal most of the time but gets very slow during peek usage times of the day.
I understand that I need one or more high gain antennas in order to receive adequate signals from either Wifi connection.
Between me and my son we have 2 laptop PCs, 1 Desktop PC, 1 network printer, 1 Xbox, 1 HDTV and my smartphone. I don't want to try to equip each device with its own high gain antenna and try to figure out which device should be connected to which Wifi depending on available signal and bandwidth. Rite now I do not have a Home network set up at all and we are only using 1 laptop and the Xbox and each is directly connected via wifi (usually to Wifi B).
If I could connect to either Wifi A or B with decent bandwidth and reliability and then be able to network or connect all my devices via wireless or wired to my own router/extender etc. I would be happy. However.. Given that I must share bandwidth with the other residents and at times one Wifi has heavy use while the other does not. I have been trying to research how to connect to both wifi signals for load balancing, reliability and hopefully greater bandwidth.
I wanna subnet my Network to increased performanced but im alil confused hereWhen looking at my ROUTER STATUS this is what i have.
INTERNET PORT IP Address XX.XX.XXX.XX gateway ip XX.XX.X.X XX.XXX.XXX.XX LAN PORT ip address xxx.xxx.x.x
Which one of this ip addresses do i have to subbnet?,my router is a ,NETGEAR N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700 Wireless router - 4-port switch (integrated) - EN, Fast EN, Gigabit EN, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n.
I have a Time Warner Cable business class service with no static IP, with a wireless modem which is plugged to a CAT5 distribution panel. On the jacks (2 other rooms on the house) I have a Linksys E3000 and a Linksys Valet router for signal boost and gadgets usage (TV, cameras, etc).The main router (TWC) has it's own external IP which TWC assigns to me and internally distributes via DHCP the range 192.168.0.x. With that said:
- The E3000 has a 192.168.0.6 IP -- this is fixed setup on the TWC router (ubee brand) by MAC address - The Valet has a 192.168.0.7 IP -- this is fixed setup on the TWC router (ubee brand) by MAC address - The main router has the 192.168.0.1 as the gateway and web-interface
Whenever I connect something to the E3000, it is distributing the 192.168.1.x range and the valet 192.168.2.x range.That works perfectly for my home based business until I decided to use more stuff on the network such as a IP printer, IP cameras, etc.
- The IP cameras are connected to the E3000 due to signal strength and I have manually assigned them the 192.168.1.15 and 192.168.1.16 IPs and ports 9001 and 9002.
- The printer is connected to the E3000 and I have manually assigned the IP 192.168.1.30.
Issue 1: Port forwarding On the main router (TWC - UBEE) I have tried to setup a port forwarding by informing the Local IP as 192.168.0.6 (E3000 IP), Internal Port 0, Public Interface IP (0.0.0.0), Ext Start Port 9001, Ext End Port 9001, Protocol - Both, Enabled Yes. On the E3000 I did the same config (screen shot attached e3000.png).This is not working properly. I can't get into the camera.
Issue 2: Printer/ The printer is only accessible if I connect to the E3000 (because it is on the 192.168.1.x network)
Issue 3: How to configure all the devices on the same subnet? If I want everyone to be on the 192.168.0.x network, how to configure properly the E3000 and the Valet? I have tried to force them into the same network but it would not work properly. It would not get an IP from the UBEE router (main).
I'm planning to replace my flaky minipcie wifi and I need advice about the antenna.My laptop has two sets of antenna, one for 3G WWAN and the other is for normal wifiAccording to the labels, both is "Main" and "Aux". The card that I'm planning to get is an Intel 5300 which has 3 antennas.Since the normal wifi only has two antennas, can I use the 3G WWAN as a third antenna? If yes, should I plug in the "Main" or the "Aux"? If no, Should I buy those additonal antennas in Ebay for the 3rd one?
