SOURCE: Wireless Internet not getting enought signal strength

Yea there are high gain antennas. Here are some on a site i would recommend

http://www.ebuyer.com/cat/Wireless/subcat/Wireless-Antennas-&-Accessories

The more you spend the more purchase you will get. Go for one with a high dBi. Also be aware that you may want an omni-directional one if you want the signal to be boosted in all areas

SOURCE: Sirius satellite radio constantly shows "acquiring signal"

it could be the connection on the back of the reciever that could be bad. I would call sirius and see if your reciever is under warranty still, if not i can almost garauntee that your tuner antenna input is bad, if your antenna is brand new.

SOURCE: I have good antenna strength but no programming.

The tuner is bad. The antenna miniport on your tuner has either a broken or cold solder joint and therefore will not receive. If it's under warranty, they will replace it, if not, you can buy the tuner re-built on Ebay for around 50.00 and is better than new. Hope this helps

SOURCE: How do I increase the signal strength of my Palm Centro?

The bars show relative signal strength.

If the Motorola is on the same provider, it is the Palm smartphone that is the fault. It may just be you got a less than sensitive one. You should probably contact Palm and see if there is anything they can do short of exchanging it, otherwise exchange it and keep exchanging them until you get one that works. In mass production- these things happen.

If the Motorola is with a different carrier, that may be the difference- they are line of sight devices and the provider you have for the Palm may not have an antenna in your vicinity pointed in the correct direction for you. Which means complaining to the carrier since you know the external antenna works, but the Palm does not.

If i have a smart tv, do I need a booster for an outdoor antenna, I am planning on a 20-30ft pole, for the antenna


The benefit and functionality of a smart tv is derived as much from a good internet connection as from decent signal strength from the antenna.

The ideal height, type and direction of the antenna depends entirely on the signal strength available where you are and the length and type of downlead cable.

If the signal strength is poor it is generally better to use a high gain wideband aerial designed for fringe reception than to use a lower gain and a booster.
It is worth noting a booster can usefully help increase the strength of a weak but good quality signal but there is little advantage boosting a signal that is both weak and poor quality so it is best to obtain the best signal possible before considering a booster.

A low specification downlead can reduce the signal and gather interference causing a bad signal/noise ratio. Using a booster at the end of such a downlead will boost the interference as well as the signal - the best place for a booster is as close to the aerial as possible and masthead types are produced to avoid those types of problem.

It is best practice to use the highest quality downlead cable - double wrapped air spaced low-loss 75 ohm coaxial cable.

HG8245A VS HG8245: The same Wifi Signal Strength?


Probably not...... With an External Antenna, there is nothing to stop the signal, whereas with the Internal, the Signal has to penetrate the case, before it goes to wherever...... I suggest using the External for the extra distance.... With 2 way radio the clearer the area yo have the Antenna, the greater the distance.... same here.... just using different Frequencies.

How do I detect signal strength?


You need a signal strength meter. I remember the ones we used when I was in the TV repair business 30 years ago. I think you are going to have to find someone who installs antennas. The ones that Cable TV installers use have a very high minimum signal indicator and most antennas won't register a signal on that type.

My signal strength is really bad on my TVs. Should I buy a new antenna?


The more tvs you have hooked up to the same antenna, the lower the signal strength. Therefore you should get an antenna amplifier or get a new antenna with a stronger signal.

I bought HDTV/UHF/VHF/FM INDOOR PASSIVE ANTENNA please help me to install it it is not working


Is the antenna the correct one for your environment? Do you have the antenna pointed at the stations you want to receive? Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get an idea of the location and likely channels you can receive at your location. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but is very conservative in the list of channels you can receive. (These may match the limits of the indoor antenna.) TVfool lists the stations and the appropriate antenna that will likely receive each station.

Tall trees and buildings will block the signal. Get the antenna as high as possible. Move the rabbit ears and UHF loop to maximize your signal strength. Then make sure the TV is set to use the OTA tuner (ATSC for digtal stations). (That may mean changing the source in the setup menu.)

Then scan for channels. Move your antenna or parts of it and rescan or edit the channel list. (For some TVs there is a weak signal setup option that will let you manually enter the station number (including sub-channel). Then it will provide the signal strength information as you move your antenna.)

I hope this helps. An amplifier may help you bring in weak stations with enough signal strength for the tv to see them.

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.

Digital built in turner


You'll need a better antenna. All the TV can do is show you the signal strength at the antenna input. If it's too low, only changing the antenna can help. This could mean simply adjusting the antenna position. You might need to replace the antenna with something larger or with a built-in amplifier. In severe cases, you might need to install an outdoor antenna to get a useable signal. With digital broadcasting it's all-or-nothing. A weak signal will either go undetected by the tuner or cause a blocky freezing (pixellated) display.
