Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)
My router has poor wireless connectivity, even with a laptop in the same room, let alone 2 rooms away. I tried to set up a wireless extender (Linksys) but the link strength is poor and intermittent. When I check the cable connection using Windows Vista it tells me I have a bad cable or connection. I have changed cables, tried each of the 4 10/100 sockets but only get a good connection on testing if I plug the network cable directly into the modem (not via the router). I have cleaned the sockets with alcohol and a cotton bud ,but no help. However, despite the poor test resul, I still get internet connection most of the time via a wired link. Is the problem with the connections as the test suggests, do I need a new router, or is there a software solution?
I would honestly suggest a new router. Although, you could check through the settings on your router and see if the wireless signal is lower then 100% for some reason. Also, see if is blocking any ports. A lot of new router's firewalls will lock a lot of ports down if it sees a virus or trojan trying to communicate outward, so do a scan on all of your computers. You can also try holding the reset button on the router for 30 seconds (you will need a pin or something small), then reconfiguring and using it and see if that helps.
You can also go through this website to try and update the software on your router.
