Question about Arris Wireless G Broadband Router (wr850g)
I work from home and recently upgraded from my old D610 to a new D620 (Dell computer). The locaton of my modem and Motorola WR850G router in my home has not changed but I'm not getting the range that I got last week with my old computer. Our house is not large....and I've always been able to get a high signal strength when being downstairs from the router. But now, I get a low signal strength and sometimes my connectivity to the internet drops all together. I have rebooted my modem and router. My internet company has verified that there is no "packet loss" on my internet connection. (?) What can be done to get the high signal strength back?
If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123
