Question about Computers & Internet
USB adapter is new, router upstairs is old, sometimes I have a connection downstairs, but most of the time I have to use the installation CD to get it working again.
Adaptor has nothing to do with signal strength.
Its the router .
1. Start -> Run -> CMD -> Ipconfig
( You"ll see default gateway which will be something like ex : 192.168.2.1 )
It is router specific
2. Type that default gateway (only the numbers )
in your brouser tab or run .
3. This will open up your router setup page
4. On the left hand side under wireless you"ll see channell and ssid . Change channell to 11 or 6 click save and then reconnect to your network on the wireless computer.
5. Also i would advice you to update the firmware on the router as it has become old so there may be some discrepency.
6. Dont keep any wireless devices near the router as it will interfere with the wireless signals .
This will certainly help
And let me know if the problem is solved .
