Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Low signal in the basement

We have a wireless network router 802-11g/2-4Ghz. Signal is strong on all 3 units in the house.
Computer in the basement is new addition to our network however signal in the basement is fading after few minutes. We checked internet connection by taking one of the other computers to the basement, they work fine, signal is strong, only the new one has this problem.

    Also how are they connecting, USB dongle, PCMCIA cards, internal laptop antennae etc etc.

    Is the new PC a desktop or a laptop?

I am running qwest DSL through a Linksys wrt160N that is brand new. it will work next to the router, but not upstairs or in the basement which is less than 15 meters. The upstairs bedroom is directly above...


If you have concrete floor slabs the the wireless signal from the Linksys will have a difficult time penetrating the floor slabs.
The wireless card in the computers will show a low signal strength.
Try altering the Linksys aerial to a horizontal position and also positioning the Linksys to another location.

You could be getting interference form other wireless sources, check the wireless channels of other wireless router/access points in your area. If they are broadcasting on the same channel then configure your Linksys to broadcast on an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength.
If none of these methods work then I would suggest you run network cables from the Linksys to upstairs and downstairs and not use the wireless connection.
If network cabling option is not an option then consider extending the wireless range with wireless repeater access points.

D link dir 615. Weak signal, router is put on main floor,but we are only getting 2 bars on the computer upstairs, and almost no signal in the basement. How can we improve the signal or do we have the wrong...


Try turning the router 90 degrees, and measure the strength.
Turn it another 90 degrees, and measure again.
Repeat.
Repeat.

Move to a house with wood cross-beams, instead of metal cross-beams inside the first-floor ceiling.

Rotate the upstairs computer 90 degrees, and measure again.

Buy a "Wireless N" router, for greater signal strength.

Connecting to wireless from my basement!


you need to add a repeater or signal booster for reciving signal in basement from uper floor.

My expierince is that whatever roueter you buy doenst matter it will not work properly if you are using wirless on 2 diffrent floors. on a same floor it can work smoothly even having walls.

When I go into other rooms I can't connect to router


How is the signal strength? Check and make sure the antennas are not loose. Is your house the old style concrete? Sometimes thick block or concrete walls are tough for the wireless signal to get through. They do make larger antennas or signal boosters for wireless routers. You may need to install one of these to boost signal strength. Also is it wireless B,G,or N? Wireless B has a very weak signal while wireless N has a very strong signal. Sometimes the router settings can be changed to adjust the signal strength and may be set too low also.

Weak signal 60 feet away at neigbhoor's


Some routers just don't put out strong signals. The problems could be wiring in/around/at your house or neighbors....causing weak signal. Are the signal strengths strong in your house?

We have super signal strength on ours upstairs (we have a bi-level house) but downstairs the signal is very low. All the wiring in the house and anything electronic or otherwise can block it.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

2nd Computer in basement cannot access Internet


if your signal is low in there the best work around would be to lay a cat-5 cable up to the router, the wired connection would be faster and more reliable then a wireless, or buy another wireless router and put it closer to the basement than the first and wire the 2 routers togher with cat5 using the second router as a fancy switch.

Home network signal - boost needed


You can get a high gain antenna or better yet get a wireless range expander to repeat the signal of your router so it can reach the entire house.
hope that helps.......
