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.

    Your new home, have iron forced concrete walls, right?



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



    So, either move, or find a new place for the router

Keep losing signal


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls, mirrors, fish tanks and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply).
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Ican not get signal from my roku


**You can skip this if your Roku player is wired to your router with an Ethernet cable.

If you are connected using wireless networking, check that the signal strength is at least "good".

To check your wireless signal:

1. From the Home screen, go to Settings>network and see what is displayed for "Signal strength"

2. If it is "good" or "excellent" you should be all set

3. If it is "fair" or "poor", follow the next steps

4. Move the placement of your Roku player and/or your wireless router to improve the signal quality

- The Roku player should not be recessed within a media cabinet, instead it should exposed in the open if possible
- Try changing the direction the Roku player faces, you may have to experiment with various spots for optimal signal

5. Run repeat guided setup and note the dark bands above your wireless router name. This gives a visual indication of the signal quality.

I have the router right by my PC, it appears connected but no signal strength at all (no bars) what is wrong?


try changing the wireless channel on the router and see if that makes any difference.

Open the setup page of the router.
Go to wireless tan and change the standard channel to 11. save the settings.

You can also try updating the drivers of the wireless adapter on your computer.
If your router is too old then you must upgrade the firmware on the router.

Signal strength bad between PS3 & D-LINK DIR-655 Wireless Router


Most likely it is the antenna for the router. Try changing the position or location of the router. The slightest twist or tilt of the router will affect the reception. A little bit of messing with it may improve your signal. Obviously the closer you can get it to your ps3 the better.

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
