    could be a wide range of things, first thing, unplug router for 30 seconds, let it get a fresh connections, if its a constant problem, take a look at what channel your on, you might be sharing a channel with someone else with a very strong signal, try changing channels to channel 1, if you have a choice for using 2.4MHZ and 5MHZ, use the 2.4, it goes farther. Make sure the router is not behind other electronics, like monitors, or next to wireless phone base station. If router is laying down, trying putting on side.... ALSO make sure if there is a firmware update to both the router and the computer wireless hardware, and check for updated drivers for the driver for wireless on the computer

    2.4GHz (not MHz) does NOT 'go further' 5GHz (not MHz) signals will travel farther -- They have more energy. The problem is that because of that, they will 'bounce-off' objects more readily

    My mistake on the Ghz, but my experience, is the 2.4 travels farther, Many many things depend on the environment she is in, I offered suggestions to help

If the router has "N" value it should run a good distance away, even to the neighbors home. If "G" 30 Feet to 50 feet max.
40 Feet is difficult if passing through thick walls or steel buildings. If it is not an "N" router, then you need that or an Extender system. See TigerDirect for hardware replaements.

My Belkin N750 DB intermittently drops my internet connection to both wireless and ethernet connected devices. I POR it and it works fine until the next time it quits. Is there a fix or is this just an...

Some people turn everything off at night and then when they turn things back on everything starts powering up. If you do this, it may be the problem because you have the modem and the router starting up at the same time. If the router finishes before the modem then it will drop.

Just make sure that you turn your wireless router on after the modem had booted up. This problem also happens when you have a power outage in the house and they both boot up at the same time.

When ever you are experiencing drops, just go unplug the wireless router then plug it back after about 30 seconds.

Belkin N750 DB wireless connection drop

There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

What is the 20/40 degree listening position narrow or wide?

You can compare this the 45 and 60 degree listening positions for surround sound but it means just what you said, 20 degrees for a narrow field and 40 for a wider field. Just remember to listen to what your ears are thinking and not others are telling you as your ears cannot be wrong to you.

45 Degrees:
The speakers are half the distance apart from each other as they are from the listening position; i.e-10 ft apart but 20 ft away.

60 Degrees:
The speakers are the same distance apart from each other as they are from the listening position; 10 ft apart but 10 ft away.

In surround sound, the higher the budget film, the higher field degree is optimum but never more than 60 degrees where you can easily go down to about 25 degrees.

For music most people like a narrower field unless you like groups like Pink Floyd where sometimes they will sound better in a wider field.

Nintendo WII controller loses contact with unit - then you have to be about 2 ft. away or it dosen't work. Is my machine failing?

it could just be the sensor bar, not the system itself. If you have a lot of lights around the senor bar or the placing, it may be effecting it. If it isn't then the senor bar will need to be replaced. They are about 15 to 20 dollars american.

Try using a different video cable. There could be a short in it. If the cord is longer than 30 ft, it may be losing the signal due to the length.
