Question about D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DI-624 Wireless Router (DI624RE)

Wireless Router Signal Strength

My router is a couple years old. Has worked perfectly. I just moved to a new home and hooked up my cable. Now my signal strength fluctuates from medium to low, and I am right next to the router. I used SpeakEasy.net to test the download speed. Its 5000kbs connecting directly to the modem, and only 400kbs using D-Link. What can I try to fix the problem?

    I have heard that routers can get channel interference, because everyone nowadays is using the same channel (#6). I have tried changing the channel, but the router doesn't allow me to change it from anything but #6. I may try the antenna.

    If the computer and router are the same as before, and you're right next to the router, it's possible something has taken a knock during the move. Alternatively, if there is a DECT phone or similar device near the router - this would disrupt the signal.
    Just a couple of thoughts. All the best to you.

    Well, signals have a hard time going through these walls,

Wifi network not working in some rooms


Change the position of the WiFi router, because there are things like duct work, metal studs and electrical wiring concealed in the walls that can and will have an effect on WiFi signal strength.

Other suggestions:
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddently stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the router back in. Wait a couple of minutes for it to initialize, and try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

  • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console.
  • What to Do:
    • Check the location and distance of your wireless router.
      The further a device is from your wireless router, the weaker it's signal strength will be. If your wireless signal has to pass through any walls or floors, this will also weaken the wireless signal strength. Move the router to a central location within your home and as close to your system as possible.
      Additionally, if your router is on the floor, moving it to a higher location can improve the signal strength.

    • Change the wireless channel your router is broadcasting on.
      Wireless routers can broadcast on a variety of channels. Sometimes a specific wireless channel may experience interference from other devices and routers nearby. How to

    • Move any metal objects or electronic devices away from your Nintendo system and wireless router.

Cant get wifi unless I am a couple of inches from router. All other wifi devices work perfectly. I even downloaded the latest driver directly from Intel and problem still exists.


Having a wireless Internet signal in your home allows multiple devices to use the same Internet connection without having to run lengths of Ethernet cable to each device. Given that the wireless network is transmitted over the air, the consistency of your Internet connection depends on the strength of the wireless signal. If wireless signal strength is not strong enough to give you a consistent Internet connection, there are a few simple steps for finding the problem and improving your signal strength.

Reset all devices. The majority of Internet issues, including poor wireless signal strength, are very often solved by a simple power cycle of all the devices in the network. Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and remove them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug the power to that device). Leave them unplugged for a full 30 seconds, plug them back in and restart your computer. When your computer fully reboots, check your wireless signal strength to see if it has improved. If it has not, further troubleshooting is required. Move your computer closer to your router, or your router closer to your computer. Wireless routers do not have unlimited range. One reason your computer may be getting a weak signal strength from your wireless network could be because your computer is simply outside of the router's range. Typically, ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will install your modem in one specific location in the house and the modem will not work at other locations, so moving the modem or modem/router combination may not be a possibility. If this is the case, you may need to move the computer to a location that is within the range of the wireless router's broadcast. If you still get poor signal strength, your router may be experiencing a malfunction. Contact the technical support department of your router manufacturer. Router malfunctions often are not the result of a bad or broken router, but of something much simpler, such as the router's needing a firmware upgrade or an incorrect setting on the router's internal setup. If your router manufacturer is unable to improve your wireless signal strength, it may be time to purchase a new router. Purchase a new router. Wireless routers are priced in part based on how widely their wireless signal broadcasts (in other words, the more expensive the router you buy, the larger a wireless signal the router will broadcast). Included in the packaging of each wireless router is the approximated range, in square footage, of that router's wireless network. A good rule of thumb is to know the square footage of your house and buy a router that can accommodate that square footage. That way, as long as the router is functioning properly, you will have strong wireless signal strength throughout your entire home.

Might be a problem with the router, or router location. Check the signal strength from the printer.
If your signal only has 1 or 2 bars, it could lose its connection very easily.

You should be able to move your modem and router, anywhere in the house, and it will not erase settings. Just have to have a strong cable signal going to the modem.

If the signal strength is not the problem, your router could be getting hot and cutting out. Or getting old and going bad. Try also resetting the router and reconfiguring it.

Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610


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

Signal strength very low. Belkin ADSL2 modem with wireless g router F 507632-4


signal is bouncing off doors and walls to get to your comp
move comp closer to modem if it increases and your signal strength increases then you know youll have to be close to modem

other problem someone taped your signal and it working off of it call your provider to come out test the wireless signal strength and or password your wireless router settings so some one cant interfere with signal

i dont like wireless myself in the home i go straight cable with ether net cord this always has strenght and cannot be tapped
