Add an external antenna to your router. If you can unscrew one of the antennae from your router you can attach one that can be put on the side of your house. I am shooting an 802.11g signal about 400 feet. You will probably need an outdoor antenna at both houses. They can be found on ebay or possibly at the Belkin website.

Unfortunately the range on a G router is usually reliable to about 200 ft or so, depending on obstructions. There is no way to boost the 802.11g signal. You'd be looking at upgrading your router and card to 802.11n, which would give you increased range. .

The turn signals and hazards quit working on my 1993 ford escort wagon


Hazard lights are nearly perfect, turn signals come and go. Since both failed, it's not likely to be the flashers or switches. If the fuses are good, you have a rusted ground-20 years of rust! Check by jumping new ground wire to green wire. Wires sometimes break inside door jamb and body but not very often. The poor man's solution is to make a tail light with two sharp pins and three feet of wire, check wire at switch, flasher, and every three feet after that. Few people bother with automotive electrics for these reasons.

My acer aspire loses its signal randomly then comes back. Other laptops in the house are fine for connection. Any advice in simple terms appreciated as I don't know how to remove acer software for


Have had similar problems with two Gateways that are actually Acer--both two feet away on either side of each other: one or the other will lose connection--so not the units---if move the one not connecting closer (it is 50 feet with 3 walls between it and router) it will then pick up the wireless and work fine--I answer about 300 questions here each week so end up to avoid this in the mud/laundry room where I can depend on the signal and also have a smoke if I want.

May want to as a test move it closer to the router and see if same issue or not.

How do I boost the signal from an at&t 2wire dsl modem so that the signal will work better in some parts of the house.


for wireless signal 1st thing to consider is the EMI's (eletro-magnetic interference) anything that is near that modem that produces static electricity, radio frequency and magnetic energy (eg. cordless phone, speaker, anything electronic...) isolate the modem at-least 6 feet away from this said EMI's.
2nd you may check on the the wirelss settings on your modem's GUI(interface) see the link:http://support.2wire.com/index.php?page=view&article=60
wireless channel and power settings and the only once you should change... channel such as 1,6,7 are sometimes used by other device (wireless phone, neighbor's router) power settings: as you place it on a higher number it gives longer distance but gets thinner space(area)

consider the red signals as you place the power higher the signal gets longer but thiner.
lastly wireless doesnt penetrate walls/ glasses it only bounce back and forth to it... so less wall or interference the better chance of going directly to the access point...
if you really havea big house try consider buying wireless booster/repeater...

We now have dial up service in a small home office outside the house. There is cable DSL in the house. The outbuilding is 234 feet from the modem in the house. Can we use a router for this distance? If...


It might be a stretch to do that distance, especially if there are a lot of walls or other obstructions in the way. However, if you still want to try this, you can purchase a device that plugs into a USB port that can receive wireless signal. They sell them at many different retailers and if you ask an associate, they should be able to find one for you. My recommendation for a router would be a Linksys WRT54G (any model in this series) because if you have some good technical skills and a little time, you can change the firmware to DD-WRT (http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index) and have a ton of settings to mess with, including boosting the signal range. Even if you don't want DD-WRT on your router, the Linksys WRT54G model is a great, reliable model and you could probably find one for less expensive than other routers out there. Hope this helps!

Im connecting through my neighbor cab only get about 17% is ther anything i can do from my house to boost my ps3 antenna


You could move your ps3 to the wall closest to their house. lol.


Assuming they are letting you piggyback their internet.

1. You could try pointing the antennas toward each other.

2. Another thing you can try it building a can-tenna. Sometimes you can use a pringle can or something similar to direct the antenna signals toward the source in a more focus fashion. I've gotten to it work in some buildings that seem to absorb wireless signals.

3. You could get a cheap router to boost your signal and set it up as a repeater/access point. Some routers do not offer the access point idea but you can flash them with firmware at dd-wrt.com; just make sure you pick a compatible router.

Weak signal


Go to your basic setup and change IP. Your default is 192.168.1.1 you can change it to a higher number
(ie:192.168.1.4) Also make sure and set up security.
If you leave it open others can use your connection and slow you down.

My garage door opener remote range limitted


Hi,
Yes the receiver can go bad over time and lose range. Most likely the receiver cost plus the labor will cost as much or more than a new unit...depending on who does the repair. FYI another cause of reduced remote range can be signal interference from other sources which would be a little harder to track down unfortunately. Wireless routers, new appliances anything with electronics are a possible source of trouble.If you or a neighbor bought any new gadgets there's a small possibility of thatbeing the issue. But based on the age of the unit that's my first guess.

Wifi access


Find the router and locate yourself as close as possible to it. If you are in the guest house and the router is in a main house, try opening a window or door if you can see the house out it, as wifi works better with less obstructions in between you and the access point.
