In general it not much less than 8 dbi

What antenna works on Toshiba 20VL43U? I purchased Mediasonic Homeworx HW110AN Super Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - 25 Miles Range.


I recently went through a whole song & dance about HDTV antennas for my RV. I bought two different directional high-gain antennas, only to find that they wouldn't even receive signals at my home! When I'd reorient the antenna and initiate another channel search, I would sometimes get ONE or TWO channels... then I'd lose them when I'd try to reorient the antenna.
What I figured out is that DIRECTIONAL HDTV ANTENNAS ARE, ESSENTIALLY, WORTHLESS. There is really no way of knowing precisely which direction the broadcast towers are and, even if you knew, they will not all usually be clustered in one small area... they may be scattered here & there around your area.
What I eventually did is bought an OMNIDIRECTIONAL HIGH GAIN ANTENNA, which was no more expensive than the DIRECTIONAL antennas I tried. Did a channel search, and got almost all of the channels in my area!
Any omnidirectional HDTV antenna will work with your television, but I'd recommend buying the one with the highest GAIN (expressed in "dB" or "dBi" with the highest number being best). Try to find a POWERED antenna with an internal SIGNAL AMPLIFIER.
Also, if you live far away from broadcast towers as I do, you may wish to consider adding an additional SIGNAL AMPLIFIER as well.

Just access your router settings, and find filtering websites

WIRELESS OUT OF RANGE


Move closer. That's not always an option though. Here are some tips to improve the range of wireless routers:

1) Locate the router higher in the building rather than lower (1st or second floor is better than a basement location).

2) Place the router in a location that will offer the least resistance to the signals - it is easier to pass wifi signals through gypsum board than it is for concrete / brick or walls with aluminum siding on them.

3) Change the antenna(s) on the router to a type that offers more gain. Typical router omni directional antennas offer 3dB to 5dB or gain - there are others that offer 7 dB or more of omnidirectional gain for reasonable prices. The antenna gain works for both transmit from and receive to the router.

4) if the device you wirsh to connect to the router is in one place, consider a directional Yagi antenna. These antennas concentrate the entire wifi signal in a direction that is 30 degrees wide and can allow the signal to be seen 5, 6 or even more times further in one direction - instead of being spread out over 360 degrees. These antennas cost a little more, but can solve the problem quickly.

5) Replace the manufacturer's stock firmware of selected routers with a 3rd party type such as DD-WRT or Tomato. Either of these will work with your Linksys WRT54G router. One of the benefits is the ability to boost output power of the wifi radio in the new settings the firmware offers. Read about both and decide if either is something you're comfortable doing.

6) Add additional wifi routers configured as a bridge or an access point to extend the wifi signal into an underserved area. DD-WRT supports bridging as shown here.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How to improve wireless connection


Wireless signals often get dropped because the channels are congested or the signal is weak. Some routers / access points can scan for the least cluttered channel and some allow you to remove the standard antenna and replace it with a higher gain antenna.

Place the access point as high and as central as possible.
Try to use a free channel.
Failing that change antenna to high gain on router and PC.

(some laptops just **** at wireless no matter what you do, I have a dell m6500 that is useless on wireless)

How do I strengthen my wireless signal? I am using a Linksys router.


The easiest is to replace the small antenna with a higher gain one. You get some very effective 8+ db gain omni directional antennas for linksys on ebay, amazon etc.
If you are in one direction you can also use a Yagi antenna (Directional) with high gain (20+db gain)
Normally the problem is not just the router, but the connecting device as well.
Keeping in mind you have 2 way comms between 2 devices. The router and say a laptop. ideally you should upgrade both antennas. As the best antenna on an Linksys AP will not fix a weak laptop signal. (it will transmit better, and receive better, but the laptop should also transmit and receive better)
Hope it helps

How can I increase my WIFI range. My internet signal is very weak when I am in my bedroom. Can I increase my range by possibly buying a signal extender.


Try moving the wireless router around and or higher.
If the wireless router is in a different room and the room has concrete walls of foils insulation in the walls, this will weaken the wireless signal. AND/OR
You can connect add a antenna to your computer. Have a look at this device. Normal 0 USB High Gain Antennas www.pricewatch.com/gallery/networking/high_gain_antenna

I have a 2wire Gateway modem/router. I would like to extend the range by 75 feet to reach an outbuilding i use for an office. What can I do?


A couple of ideas come to mind, but basically 75 extra feet could be a problem. It's unlikely that you will be able to extend the range of your present router, but that's the first place to look. The antenna may have a mini-connector on it that unscrews. You can add a 5 or 9 dB antenna to the base unit and push the signal farther.

The problem you face is you might be able to see the signal, but you still can't talk back to it. There are instructions floating around the internet to convert a wireless router to a wireless bridge. A bigger antenna at the Gateway and a router wired as a bridge would get you all the signal as a point-to-point system.

Of course, an industry standard wireless access point, will have a bridge mode. Again, it might be enough to just get one of those and it will be able to communicate with your existing equipment without adding the high gain antenna.

A typical WAP with antenna is in the neighborhood of $90.
