Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

1 Answer

Need to boost my wireless signal for remote laptop

2wire network works fine in main house. My mom lives in a mobile home adjacent to the main house (approx 100 ft from router). I tried a Hawking range extender....it works only intermittently and drops the line repeatedly.. Feel like I need a different configuration or different equipment to accomplish what I want. Mom frustrates easily and needs reasonably reliable internet access..

What are my other options ..... antennas, other range extenders???.... Would be willing to pay a network savvy tech to come onsite and setup, but don't know who to call. I live in extreme South Texas.....not a lot of high tech gurus here.

Thanks for your help....

It's almost a DIY deal, but how close are you to Corpus?

The unit you need is a Wireless access point. My favorite, fairly inexpensive, WAP is made by TP Link. http://www.tplink.com/products/product_des.asp?id=116

You can start with one, at ***********'s, add an external antenna, and set it up as a client pointing to your wireless internet connection. If that doesn't work, you duplicate the equipment set up as a wireless access point at your location.

Post back if you need purchasing help or are near Corpus.

Since you are able to connect using a hardwired connection and you're able to connect wirelessly at the library, that simply means that your computer and your internet browser are fine. where is your wireless computer and your wireless located? are there any possible wireless devices interfering with the wireless signal like chordless phones, cellphone, TVs, radios, microwave oven? are your walls in your house covered with metal plates coz that would really make the signal deteriorate. the settinngs on your wireless router may also need to be reconfigured and boost up the signal of the wireless router.if only i could remotely access your wireless router, I would really walk you thru on what to check on your wireless router

there is an adaptor that you can buy
it is plugged into the power socket for the house , connected to the ether net connection
you have a second plug in connection that plugs into any other power point and that runs a ethernet cable to the pc or modem
I have such a system running from the shed computer to the house computer and modem distance of 100 yards
it is called a TP-Link and is available fro Jaycar or like electronic shops
it works by using the house wiring to transmit the data signal along with the house power

2wire gateway signal range problems


1. Put the router in the highest location possible in the house.
2. Make sure the gateway is installed in the center of the house rather than in a corner of house, so it will cover area on all sides.
3. Make Sure you dont have any devices that may interfere with the signal eg. cordless phone , close to the gateway.
4. Use channel 3 or 7.

Usb 2wireless adapter keep losing sigal


If your computer keeps losing the signal, you need to either change the wireless channel or boost your wireless power on your router. Sometimes even a combination of both is needed so you stop losing signal.

Home network signal - boost needed


You can get a high gain antenna or better yet get a wireless range expander to repeat the signal of your router so it can reach the entire house.
hope that helps.......
