Question about SENAO High Power 200mW USB WiFi 802.11bg Adaptor with External Antenna (655216003026) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Have been trying to install several different wifi external antennas - Engenius, Linksys, a "home-made" one. Problem with all of them is the same - the hardware is recognised, but the signal remains the same (or even weaker!) than my original wireless connection. Have downloaded all latest drivers i can find, to no avail. These antennas DO work ok on an XP laptop, it's my Vista machine which seems to be the problem. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-TX56SN/B, running vista biz. The XP (pro) laptop which does run the external antennas successfully is a similar, just slightly older vaio. On the XP machine, i get at least a 2 bar boost, on the vista machine, signal is same or less. Am on a tiny island in Langkawi (Malaysia) with few resources, spent far too many days on this now and about to pull hair out ! tks.... Diane

Excellent signal low speed transfer


You can boost the signal range of a WiFi computer network in several ways: Answer:
  • reposition your router (or access point) to avoid obstructions and radio interference. Both reduce the range of WiFi network equipment. Common sources of interference in residences include brick or plaster walls, microwave ovens, and cordless phones. Additionally, consider changing the WiFi channel number on your equipment to avoid interference.

  • upgrade the antenna on your router (or access point). WiFi antennas on most wireless base stations can be removed and replaced with more powerful ones.

  • add another access point (or router). Large residences typically require no more than two APs, whereas businesses may employ dozens of APs. In a home, this option requires connecting your primary wireless router (access point) to the second one with Ethernet cable; home wireless routers and/or APs don't normally communicate with each other directly.

  • add a bi-directional WiFi signal amplifier to wireless devices as needed. A WiFi signal amplifier (sometimes called "signal booster") attaches to a router, access point or Wi-Fi client at the place where the antenna connects. Bi-directional antennas amplify the wireless signal in both transmit and receive directions. These should be used as WiFi transmissions are two-way radio communications.

  • add a WiFi repeater. A wireless repeater is a stand-alone unit positioned within range of a wireless router (access point). Repeaters (sometimes called "range expanders") serve as a two-way relay station for WiFi signals. Clients too far away from the original router / AP can instead associate with the WLAN through the repeater.

Asus 802.11g wi-fi only detects network when connect a cable to the external antenna. what should i do?


It seems that the signal reaching your modem is weak or it getting blocked by some electrical equipment, try relocating the antenna. But first try it on another PC at a different location to confirm that wi-fi is working properly..............sodeep

Problem connecting to my network


What I would do is replace the wireless router with a 4 or 5 port switch to control computers (devices) downstairs. Or, if you need wireless access, purchase only an access point to cover downstairs.

This way the wire from upstairs goes directly into the access point and you have wireless access downstairs.

And yet another way would be to purchase Airlink 101 PowerEthernet boxes ($54.99 each) and use those to connect an access point anywhere in your home that has an outlet.

System do not reconize the PCI card


Does it ask for a driver to be installed? Or have you got the wireless version of the mobo that needs an ASUS WiFi-b add-on card with an omni-directional antenna?

Like on the previous version of the mainboard, the PCB contains five PCI slots and an exclusive WiFi slot, in its left part. By the way, when you install the original WLAN card from ASUS into this slot, the last PCI becomes unavailable. Now let’s examine the card, too.

The card supports the wireless networking protocol IEEE 802.11b, describing data-transfer rates up to 11Mb/s. Using the software that accompanies the card, you can use it in the Ad Hoc as well as in the Infrastructure mode, and the card can perform the functions of a programmable access point, providing connections to 31 clients. Thus, the owner of the WiFi-b kit can easily deploy wireless networks and connect to existing ones.
