SOURCE: SIGNAL BOOSTER FOR CORDLESS HOME PHONE

The only way to increase the range on a cordless phone is to improve the antenna system. Since the antenna is in the base, the easiest thing to do is move the base to a better location, as high as possible. If that is not possible, you can go to any radio repair shop and ask them to open the base and solder an external antenna connector to it. Mine was done for five dollars. Then buy an external high gain antenna of the correct frequency and place it as high as possible in an area free of obstructions. This will improve your range by between 10 and 50 percent. The simplest way is to Google long range phones and make sure you find one at 900 mhz which is a legal frequency. The other phones are illegal in North America because of their potential to interfere with frequencies on such bands as police and fire and amateur. Also, make sure it does not put out more than one watt, (still 10x the power of the average cordless phone). The Engenius is probably the best cordless phone which is legal in Canada and the US but it can get pretty expensive. There is no easy way to do it. I consider myself an expert because I have been researching the issue for many months. I recently bought an ATTCL82209. With the base in a good position with clear line of sight, mine gives me a range of 525 yards which is almost a third of a mile. With an external antenna I have obtained 800 metres which is half a mile. But an urban environment has so many obstacles and variations that consistent long range with any phone is impossible. There is a reason why so many people pay exhorbitant monthly fees to use a cellphone, cellphones are the only real solution to urban communication problems, and the cell providers know it. If you are in Canada, www.3centcell.com, might be a viable solution. Trust me, I know my stuff, I have spent months researching every possible angle.

Converter box will not stay on - starts green light then switches to red


I have one of those right here attached to my computer so I can watch TV on the PC. The red-green light is the power indicator. Your converter is turning off for some reason. Possibly it is getting a signal from another remote, and turning off. You can block the converter's remote sensor with something (black tape works) and then change the channels with front panel buttons if it has them.
Mine has power buttons for both the TV and the converter, so watch out for that.

Why does my moto G from US Cellular get poor signal now that I switch my plan from the $50 plan to the $60 plan



Cellular Signal Boosters / Repeaters

Your cellular carrier can provide you with a "signal booster" device that can repeat and boost a cellular signal you already get in your house. For example, if you consistently have one bar of coverage but no more at home, a booster can take that one bar and turn it into more bars. If you have one or two bars of coverage near a window but no coverage elsewhere in your home, a booster near that window can capture the signal and boost it, providing a strong signal throughout the rest of your home.
Some carriers offer such devices very inexpensively - $50 or maybe even free - especially if you're in an area where they know they know they have poor coverage. T-Mobile now offers such boosters for only a $25 deposit, which you can get back just by returning the booster to them.
Contact your carrier - or look at their website - to see just what they'll offer you and for how much.



Femtocells / Microcells

A femtocell - or "microcell" - is a small, low-power cellular base station that connects to the cellular network via your broadband Internet connection. Essentially, it's a small cellular signal tower that will provide a signal in and near your home, connecting to the larger mobile network over your Internet connection. This makes it ideal for situations where you don't even have a signal bar of coverage you can boost at home. The only "catch" is that your Internet connection must have a high enough download speed. Different carriers require different minimum speeds, but you should be fine as long as you have a solid broadband connection.
Ask your cellular carrier if they offer this sort of product and find out how much it will cost you. As with boosters and repeaters, a femtocell may be available at a steep discount from your carrier in areas they know they have poor cellular service.
You can also buy them easily on Amazon or almost any decent tech store - for instance the one pictured below works for AT&T and supports LTE (though it is a bit pricey), or you can get one that supports Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Cricket, and many others, but you won't get LTE support. Of course, since you likely have Wi-Fi in your house, LTE isn't really a big deal and the 3G will work just fine for calls and texts.
Editor's Note: For the official How-To Geek office we got a Samsung microcell device directly through Verizon, which wasn't cheap, and doesn't work all that well. And since it only works for Verizon, any of the people who come by who use other carriers have zero signal, which is really annoying. If we could do it over again, we'd have started with this zBoost microcell that supports virtually every cell provider and has many different models and options to choose from depending on the size of the house. They even have an optional antenna you can install on your roof to give cell coverage everywhere around your house. It's the best choice, and cheaper than most carriers will offer you.



Wi-Fi Calling and SMS


Wi-Fi calling is a feature you might remember from some years ago, but it's coming back with a vengeance. At the moment, in the US, only T-Mobile offers Wi-Fi calling for both Android phones and the iPhone. Sprint only offers Wi-Fi calling for select Android phones. AT&T and Verizon have announced plans to activate Wi-Fi calling in 2015.
Essentially, WI-Fi calling allows your smartphone to receive and place calls and communicate via text messages over a Wi-Fi network. Your home probably has Wi-Fi, so Wi-FI calling will let you use your existing wireless router instead of needing a new, specialized device. You can just improve your Wi-Fi signal strength, and all your devices will benefit!
Wi-Fi calling works transparently. When your phone is on Wi-Fi and has a poor cellular signal, it will connect to the Wi-Fi network and your phone calls and text will be sent and arrive over the Wi-Fi network. When you leave the Wi-Fi network, your phones and calls will be sent over the cellular network as usual. This is all designed to hand-off automatically, so you could start a phone call on your Wi-Fi network and your phone would automatically hand off to the cellular network as you walk out the door, with no interruptions.



WI-FI calling will also work on other WI-Fi networks, so it's helpful if you ever end up in another place where you have a poor cellular signal but have Wi-Fi. To use this, you'll need to ensure your phone has Wi-Fi calling support and that it's enabled. Android phones from T-Mobile and Sprint will often include this feature, so look up how to enable it on your specific model of Android phone.
The iPhone 6 has built-in Wi-Fi calling, although it currently only functions on T-Mobile. AT&T and Verizon plan to support it in 2015. To enable this feature on an iPhone, open the Settings screen, tap Phone, tap Wi-Fi Calling, and activate it.

WI-Fi calling seems to be the future goal the industry - T-Mobile, especially - is pushing towards. With Wi-Fi calling integrated into your phone, you don't need to buy a specialized device. Your home Wi-Fi router works. And, when you go somewhere else where you have a poor signal, all they need is a Wi-Fi network and you'll be able to get a phone calls and SMS messages through it.

My cell phone sends duplicate text messages


Usually this is a network connection problem, does this usually happen when you're in the same location, like at home? If so, try connecting your phone via wifi and see if that does it. If not or you don't have a wifi connection at home, try connecting in a different location or contact your service provider about the service in your area, and inquire about a home cellular signal booster.. Note: The wifi will still only help if you have some type of connection with your service providers network.. If you do not have any service your phone should show signal no bars at all, and have an X where the signal bars are usually located.. Hope that helps..

My samsung phone has a low signal strength, how do I increase it. I have turned the phone on and off, removed the battery. Can I use those antenna boosters that go behind the batteries tp increase it.


Usually when devices have low signal strength it is either as a result of the network IC or the signal at the particular location is just low. Although you can attempt to use signal boosters but often times they have side effects if the phone usage is quite heavy as the attract more microwaves than recommended for human body contact. You can attempt the use of signal boosters and see how the performance becomes.
Hope this ssolution has been helpful?

Infinity tss-1100 sub problem


hey buddy, I have the same system, and although I haven't experienced it on this one, I had the Harman Kardon equivalent to the TSS-750, and the sub did this same thing. It was a loose RCA connection, and, as I was well outside of warranty, I took the amp out of the back and just re-soldered the connection myself. It now functions flawlessly for my bedroom setup. I hope you get it all worked out on your system! I can't imagine using this awesome system without its deep notes!
