What you can do is try changing the router's channel. Follow the steps below:

1. Open Internet Explorer and type 192.168.1.1
2. It will ask for username and password. No username and password is admin
3. Click on Wireless tab. Select Standard for Radio Band and select Channel 11 for Standard Channel. Click on Save settings.
4. Check the signal distance now

You have a few options. If you already have a router, set this one up as an Wireless Access point. It pulls signals from the main router and you can connect to this one. BUT your signal could be weak depending on the distance, walls etc. If you can make a cable run, use it as a switch. (Extend your ports, and as a wireless point. Go to Cisco Linksys and download the manual.It is not difficult. Use the main router as a your DHCP and this one as a wireless point. You will need to set up the SSID and security (Securty is optional, but I would do it). Give it a SSID different then your main one and you can setup your device to connect to the one with the strongest signal (Most do this by default.

How can I increase my WIFI range. My internet signal is very weak when I am in my bedroom. Can I increase my range by possibly buying a signal extender.


Try moving the wireless router around and or higher.
If the wireless router is in a different room and the room has concrete walls of foils insulation in the walls, this will weaken the wireless signal. AND/OR

My Belkin N-1 is very weak. Can't get a signal from one room to the next. Is there a fix or does it need repair?


Try changing the channels on your router... Also, if you have a wireless phone near it make sure that they are using different channels or better to move it away from your router... very thick walls also weakens the signal... try placing it first near your laptop just to check that you can connect wirelessly before you move it away... you might just need an range expander or repeater to boost up the signal
