1. You can try to play around with the channel, you can use channel 1,6 or 11.
2. If the location is a dead spot you may try installing a repeater to boost the signal.

No increase in range


Hey kenat. To increase the range of your wireless signal to increase signal strength, try pointing the antennae as approximate as possible to your receiver. If you have already tried that, then use the old Aluminum foil trick. Get a small square of aluminum foil and wrap it around your antennae. Make sure the whole antennae is wrapped with the foil and it's usually best to keep some more hanging off. Because Aluminum is conductive, this will increase the strength of your wireless signal, and at the same time your range.
If all else fails you could always purchase a multi-antennae router which usually has 3 or more antennae.

Have fun :)

Have cisco linkys E3000 and signal is poor from one room to another one. Is there any help to increase power etc. Rgds dodorp43do@yahoo.com


Hi, Some ways to improve signal are:
  1. Place the router in a central location
  2. Place the router on the same floor that it is mainly used
  3. Replace the antenna with a hi-gain version
  4. Replace the network card in your computer with a better model
  5. Change the channel of your router to use a less populated channel
  6. Reduce wireless interference by removing objects on the same band (e.g. most home wireless phone systems work on the same band as wireless routers)
  7. Update your firmware on your router
  8. Update the network driver on your computer
  9. Upgrade the router
  10. Make a parabolic reflector for your router:

I have the belkin router in my home and one of my laptops are not picking up the signal for the router


Hi,

Probably the Router signal strength is low.
You need to open the EWS page ( Router configuration page ) and increase the signal strength to 11 ( it must be Auto or 1,2,3, etc )

EWS Page ( Router page ) can be opened using the Router IP Address which may be 192.168.1.1 or if you know it. Open Internet Explorer and enter the ip address and hit enter ( without www or .com )

Under Wireless configuration or settings you will find the Channel Strength. You need to restart your Laptop to get connected again to the network after saving the settings are you will loose the internet connection.

Regards,
Shawn

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

Poor signal strength


if your in a metal shed then the best way would be to mount a outdoor type access point to boost signal or just hardwire it

Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610


If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123

Wireless signal low


Get a better wireless router.

Change the location your using your laptop in.

Google your problem with hack as a keyword to read about how people can use woks to increase signal strength but watch out for laws about radiation and frequencies.

Consider getting a booster to relay your signal.

Check for wireless phones or radios, pay TVs etc. that could be affecting your signal.

Belkin g wireless weak signal ,how to increase


You may be able to get an external antenna for it; check where the existing antenna connects to see if it can be removed. If not, raising the elevation of the access point will help. Also, be sure to place the access point away from thick walls or metal.
