Stronger Wireless Signal with 2701HGB Router?

I had a computer savvy friend install a wireless router in-line with the 2wire to get a stronger signal with it's external antenna. The lap top reads the signal and will connect to it but there is no internet through the 2nd router. The 2nd router is a Netgear WGT624 by the way.

Netgear's web site has an excellent tutorial on how to do this. It involves turning off the DHCP on the Netgear, and linking the LAN prots of the two routers. There is no connection to the WAN port of the Netgear.

Here's the link http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101236.asp

How do i change channels on my router


You change the channel in the router's wireless setting.
This does not give you a stronger signal BUT you can select a different channel so you do not get interference with other wireless routers in your area that are broadcasting on the same channel.

Only get 1 bar on my i phone 4 cloe to the router


What you can do here to correct this problem is to access the router setup page and play around with its wireless settings that will provide a stronger signal for your wireless network , the most possible settings that you can change to improve the signal from the wireless router is to change the wireless channel of the router and see which channel works fine with your wireless network and with your IPHONE.

I have a verizon westell 7500 gateway router. Will I be able to use a netgear WG111 2v wireless adapter to get a stronger signal from it for my laptop?


I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Is the signal too weak?
You could use the router to extend the range with the proper configuration. Either that, or purchase a wireless extender that does just that.
You won't get a stronger signal. A router does not boost a signal. It can pick up the signal and rebroadcast it using a different IP.

Weak signal problem can be fixed by firmware update however, if the client computer is too far from the router, it can't be helped. What you need is a wireless range expander. What it does is give you another 100% signal or atleast stronger signal to the spot or area where you have a weak or dead signal.

My Linksys network adapter is very slow to connect


Ask them to review you connection speed to make sure your getting the speed you ordered. Linksys is usually pretty good. See if it's faster WITHOUT using the wireless (plug directly into the modem). If it is I can only think of two things... Ether you need to relocate your wireless modem to acheive a stronger signal OR if your signal is strong on your adapters end, you could always upgrade to a different wireless adapter that can handle faster conections.

Get a stronger signal


You are pushing your luck at 70ft. You can probably get booster ariels for your router that can boost the output signal for approx £10.

Wireless not working


Yes, There could be alot of things that are causing your Operating System to not obtain signal from your Wireless Router....I would first of all try troubleshooting this by;;
1st - Unplug your High-Speed Internet Modem and Wireless Router for 30 seconds apprx.
2nd - Restart your Computer.
3rd - Once your computer is logged in and at desktop, Plug-In your High-Speed Modem then wait until all lights appear that show your Modem is online then plug-in your Wireless Router then wait about 30 seconds then try to connect to your Wireless Connection.
If these do not work make sure that, you do not have your Wireless Router. I would also recommend that a way to create and obtain a signal strength that the computer can reach please go to the following website http://www.mythings.com/tips/1664/Where-to-Put-Your-Wireless-Router This should assist you with making a stronger signal strength.

Choosing a stronger router


You can get this one its WRT300N this a router that uses the latest wireless N technology which means a wider range and faster speed but using this router in order for you ro use the wireless N technology you may need a wireless N adapter also on your computers.
But if you want since you already have a existing wireless network juts get a wireless range expander to repeat the signal of the router so it will reach your XBOX this is the model WRE54G.

I think 2wire routers are good in providing signal strength. Contact the 2wire vendor regarding your requirements.
