Yes. You can just deploy a Wireless Access Point or a Wireless Range Expander. What they do is they extend your signal from main router thus, if you're having low reception at one part of your house, deploy the Wireless Access Point there and it's gonna give you another excellent signal.

Bought a zte z max but when I try to get on a wifi signal it says obtaining up address then says saved open and repeats. Still can't get on a wifi signal. What should I do?

Are you able to connect to the wifi signal with another device (phone, tablet, laptop?)
You first want to make sure that your security settings are correct (Encryption, SSID, password.)
But it looks like you are not the only one having issues ;( see here:

Belkyn g router does not connects with full strength. I have connected just a laptop and a tablet. Tablet gets average speed but laptop finds it hard to receive signal.

The reason your laptop may have trouble connecting at full speed could be due to the quality of its wireless card/motherboard (if built in). There are a few things you can try, first you can try updating the drivers for your wireless card/motherboard via windows update or alternatively from the laptop manufactures website. You will need to make a note of your make and model number of your laptop which is normally on a sticker underneath the laptop. This may improve things as there have been some minor signal issues addressed with driver updates on some wireless card.

Other options:

check if your router has detachable aerials (if they can be unscrewed) if they can you could buy some aerials with a higher dbi. Routers typically ship with 1-3 dbi aerials you can get them typically as high as 8dbi for indoor use, this will improve the signal slightly. If your router has more than one aerial you should replace each of them with the same type and dbi to ensure it works correctly.

buy a usb wireless adapter, these give you access to wireless if you don't have any built in, but can also be used as replacements for your in built wireless.

change your router (a last resort) but there are a number of advantages to this, newer routers a more powerful, faster and use "N" which is faster than G. N gives you speeds of 125mbps upwards. Wireless N routers are backward compatible for B and G devices so any older devices will work but they will still be subject to any limitations of wireless B or G.

A router-router solution can be effective.
How to improve signal strength in my home!
*Put large furniture along the exterior walls of your home
*Minimize mirrors. All metallic surfaces reflect WiFi signals, including the thin metal layer found in most mirrors.
*Place your router in one of the following locations:
  • Near the center of the house
  • Off the floor, ideally on a high shelf
  • As far as possible from your neighbor's Wi-Fi router (which, of course, you've made sure is using a different channel)
  • Away from cordless phones and microwaves, which operate on the same 2.4-Ghz frequency.(There are some cordless phones that are Wi-Fi friendly)
  • Keep antennas as far away from power cords and other computer wires as possible. Those cords and wires can interfere with radio reception.

ROUter used to work great but now don't always get on the internet keeps saying can't display the webpage. Also if I do get on then go to another page get the same message again. WIFI works in café...

1. check your firewall in the Windows Security
2.. Do a "ipconfig /all" at the command prompt ( DOS prompt) this will show you if you have a media disconnect.
3. If so then you will have to do a "ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew or just unplug the Ethernet cord from the wall and plug it back to the wall and see if there is any change to the router status. You can also go to the router status page to see this and do these procedures.
4. If you have any flashing lights at the DSL or cable router then you have lost the connection possibly with the ISP ( Internet Service Provider) This is a 1st step also to check.
4. check your WIFI configuration in the router it may be that you do not have the device allowed properly in the router
5. check the manufacturers web site for updates this also can contribute to no connectivity,.
6. Check the location of the router if it is near any electronics such as digital TV, cell phone, cordless phones etc. Then move the unit about 20 ft away from these devices. If your router is in a corner of the basement this also will stop or show intermittent connectivity. Try to centralize the router in the house for better signal reception.
I hope this helps. Have great day!

If your computer has 3 bars of signal, it's ok, don't mess with it.

Try placing the router closer to the center of the house, and in a higher area, and away from cordless phones, and high voltage wiring.
