If you mean the range of wifi signal, it depends on the surrounding, but if your in an open area you may get as much as 100M.

Note 2 wifi weak wifi signls. it works only if i go near to router distance between 3 meter

Bad router or it may be the wifi card in your device? I have a router that the wife's laptop cannot connect to very welll from 18 metres away. The guy down the road can logon to my network from 40 meters distance.
Maybe it is not the router.
Try replacing it with a newer model, the lifespan of a router is probably about 2-3 years before they start degrading. Check reviews for recommendations as to which has the best signal strength/range

Why can't I connect to wireless?

encyrption mismatch may be a problem

Distance may be a problem also. You may wish to use a power line ethernet switch for the router to the television if on the same power circuit. May need a wireless repeater to get the range .

If TV has a wireless antenna socket you may be able to use 5DBi gain wireless antenna to get more distance
(no Guarantee Gain antenna will fix problem )
Another problem could be how many devices are already on wireless. May have reached max capacity of devices on wireless router.
try moving tv closer to wi-fi to eliminate distance as a possible cause

How do i get a nice finish on the end of my worktop using a worktop jig ?

i have this router and it is the nicest one i have ever used. setting up a jig take time and if you are only making a straight cut then put a straight edge along your top and clamp it down. you only need the distance from the roller on your bit to the back endge of the router fence. set the straight edge that distance from the front of your top. I suggest tryinng it on a scrap piece of wood to make sure the distance is exact and the profile being cut doesnt need adjusted

I have a WRT300N router. I was wondering what the maximum distance that laptop with a WPC300N can be too still get a good signal?

We tested the router’s coverage at different distances and with different obstacles. We measured the signal level in five points:
Point 1: Near the WRT300N
Point 2: At a distance of 4 meters without obstacles
Point 3: At a distance of 5 meters + two thin gypsum wallboards
Point 4: At a distance of 6 meters + one brick wall, about 30cm thick
Point 5: At a distance of 17 meters + one thin gypsum wallboard and one 30cm brick wall
Here are the results...

Considering what you started with, it should be slow :-)

If this were my installation I would run HUGESNET>Router>BRIDGE>BRIDGE>ROUTER/AP>PC

The first router is the 150N. The Bridges are two Wireless Access points in bridge mode designed for distance. A nice unit for this application is a TP-Link WA-601G with antennas (ANT2408) found here:

It will cost you an extra $100-150 depending on antenna, but it should get you good results, considering the SAT is probably 300 down and 128 up :-)

Internet want start

Hi mtaylor9,

Routers are great but they do have issues with distance, or certain walls that can interupt the connections. My suggestion is to have your daughter when she is connected to walk away from the router step by step, and continue this until it drops. This will give you the distance it will work for you. Then either move the router closer to her destination, or you can get another router than can act as a passthrough. The last option is to run ethernet wire everywhere which really defeats the purpose of wireless.

Good Luck

For problem number 1, your linksys home router has a maximum signal range of 100 to 150 feet, that is less than 50 m. The reason for the poor connection is the distance between the laptops and the wireless device. Try moving the router closer to the center point from where both laptops are stationed. If you can make the maximum distance between 30 and 40 meters (shorter the distance the better the connection strength) from the router to both laptops this may solve the first problem. If you cannot change the location of the router, then you may want to consider switching to a wired connection for the laptop you are trying to review from, (the maximum distance for cat 5e ethernet cable is 100 m).

For problem number 2, I am unsure what you mean by system does not work, do you mean your laptops will not turn on, or that you cannot pick up a signal from the wireless device?
