Hi Emma

I believe an external antenna to always be a stronger signal than an internal one, I have always found them (external) to be a better solution

Thanks Bachey

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 speed up my wifi performance


1. Keep your wifi router in proper place:

speed-up-wifi-performance-ekycgghenael2qsj0smxwl1l-1-0.jpg
The position of the router in your home matters a great deal. If you have the router placed in far corners of your home(Just because routers are ugly), chances are, you get spotty (or no) signal on the other end of the house.
The ideal location of a router is as close to the center of your home as possible, in an open area, away from other electronics, with maximized visibility. The more walls, doors, and other obstructions near your router, the higher the chance of something interfering with your signal.
It's also better to keep the router higher. Routers tend to spread signal downward, so if it's resting low or on the floor, you're not maximizing your coverage.

2. Reposition the antennas:

speed-up-wifi-performance-ekycgghenael2qsj0smxwl1l-1-2.jpg Routers come with one of two types of antennas, internal or external. If your router has two external antennas, try positioning them perpendicular to one another - one pointing vertically and the other positioned horizontally.
Reception between the router and your device is maximized when the receiver and transmitter are operating along the same plane, explains Alf Watt, a former Apple Wi-Fi engineer. Some devices have vertical antennas, others have horizontal. Having two antennas positioned perpendicularly ensures that the wireless reception is maximized.
If your router has only one antenna or an internal antenna, it will take some trial and error. Try either positioning the antenna (or the entire router) vertically and horizontally to see if one way works better than the other.

How can i boost my wi-fi


You can buy a 'repeater'. A repeater is a net device that can pick up your wifi signal from one wifi, and using another channel (your computer or other device can automatically change channels) it will also send the same connection without wires. Basically, these are like cell towers in that you can move from one to another seamlessly, if they're built to do so. Some cheaper models will require you to chose the one you want.

The other option is to use the etherport, and run another wireless router by pulling a cable to the part of the house or buisness where you need the signal.

Now, that's the easiest way. However, if your wifi uses an antenna, sometimes, if you can find one, you can get a better antenna, something that is directional, or partly directional, this can at times double or triple your distance. However, unless the antenna has an amplifier, it will merely have the same signal, it will just confine the directions it travels, and this boosts the signal. Most normal antennas transmit 360°, but you can get them with any angle spread, and it will help, even down to 15°, which is a very narrow but strong signal. Add an amplifier, and you increase the output signal.

Hope this helps.

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.

Our router lets us join the network, but the network doesn't have internet access. However, we can get a weaker strength wifi from the city's wifi. Normally we access this through the router. How...


Sounds like you have lost your internal IP address assignments.. I would suggest unplugging the power from your router for two min and shutdown your computers. Plug your router back in and let it cycle completely up before restarting your computer. This should restore your internal IP lease.

How do i increase wi-fi signal strength


There are only a few ways to increase signal strength ..move closer to the source (the router) , get a bigger antenna or boost the signal...you can boost the signal with foil in the shape of a parabola around the router antenna or make one out of a vegatable strainer that will plug into the laptop(this one works best )especially for picking up your neighbors WIFI

Need help using router


First of all your neighbor must be able to reach your signal. When they start up their wireless application they must be able to see your SSID, and have enough signal strength to actually connect and do meaningful work. This might be the case already, or you may need to put in a repeater closer to your neighbor. You r neighbor could also purchase an external directional wifi antenna from radio shack to improve reception. I have used Cantennas (look like a Pringles Can) before and they work ok.

Once you have signal then you just need to give your neighbor the password to your wifi network for them to enter into their network application. This password was setup when you setup the wireless network. You probably wrote it down, or it is a common password that you use.

The rest should be seemless, depending on the signal strength.

Wifi (laptop)


built in wifi cards are very limited in range, get an external pc card
then you can get an antenna to connect to that if needed.
I use both and find the external card is best in reception.
you can connect an antenna to the internal card but you will have to leave the access panel open or make a hole in it.

OK maybe get an external antenna in any event place the Unit/Antenna up as high as possible... also ensure ya aren't near any large metal objects/power wire junctions etc, but generally an external antenna will Boost ya signal, also even just moving "it" somewhere else can make a big improvement... In some wifi routers ya can increase and decrease ya output, ya may wanna check ya manual to see if yours is one of those? Ya may also want to try changing "Channels" on the Router too.. this also has been known to help. Good Luck :)

Internal Antenna not working anymore


if you do a search at pdaphonehome.com a guy has replaced his antenna and provided step by step instructions for how to do it yourself with pictures. I don't know if frying it can make sure getting a new antenna will fix that but thats something you can try before replacing.
