    Is the computer you're using a laptop? Move your laptop beside the metal barn and check if the laptop will detect a wireless signal from your mom's router.

The metal barn serves as a wireless interference. It reflects back the signal from your mom's house. What you can do to get a wireless signal if either buy a Wireless Access Point to extend the signal from your mom's house or just relocate the position of the satellite transmitter.

Weak signal


You may actually be too close to the device, You can access the wireless router from a browser (192.168.0.1 or tplinklogin.net)
The default login is admin / admin
Once the setup page displays you can go to the wireless section.
Here you can adjust the TX Rate and the Channel Width and other features to fine tune your device to work in your situation.

Here is a link to the manual as well in case the above is not clear.
http://www.tp-link.com/Resources/document/TL-WR940N_V1_UG_111228.pdf

Also ensure the device does not have to go through any metal walls, or other material that may disrupt the signal.

Please comment if more information is required.

X cube gaming system in son's bedroom never has 4 bars. Is there a way to improve the signal?


Usually this is because the router further away. As long as it's connected to your own wireless internet, you can always move the router closer.
The router is the box that provides the wireless internet. Try relocating it to a closer position in the house.
Best of luck!

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.

Cannot connect to the internet


You cannot connect a router to a router. You would have to configure the belkin as an access point and I don't believe those routers can work that way.

Basically you cannot have a router "routing IPs" when another router is already doing that work. There will be a conflict and the second router will always fail.

Belkin Router Signal Weak


Wireless configurations are tempermental over larger distances. Some routers do have the ability to increase the signal strength to over come this, but a good location is key.

The more obsticals in the way the slower the connection will become. Closed doors, being buried under books, underneath desks, can all cause the signal to come through a slower speeds to compensate.

Make sure your router is in an elevated location to help with a less blocked signal.

Are you using a Wireless-N adapter on your computer? If not, you might need an extender because Wireless-G does not have the same range as -N.

With the model number of your Belkin router I might be able to assist more.

Need to boost my wireless signal for remote laptop


It's almost a DIY deal, but how close are you to Corpus?

The unit you need is a Wireless access point. My favorite, fairly inexpensive, WAP is made by TP Link. http://www.tplink.com/products/product_des.asp?id=116

You can start with one, at ***********'s, add an external antenna, and set it up as a client pointing to your wireless internet connection. If that doesn't work, you duplicate the equipment set up as a wireless access point at your location.

Post back if you need purchasing help or are near Corpus.

Unfortunately the range on a G router is usually reliable to about 200 ft or so, depending on obstructions. There is no way to boost the 802.11g signal. You'd be looking at upgrading your router and card to 802.11n, which would give you increased range. .
