Re: signal strength

An omni directional antenna connected to the router will extend the range of your wireless network, it should solve your problem. You can find them in any PCs store.

Signal strength went from Good to Low

Either move the computer closer to the router or the router closer to the computer. You could also try connecting the usb adapter to a usb hub to remove any interference from the computer.

Do you have encryption enabled on your wireless router? There is a strong possibility that you have entered the wrong encryption key (network key) while connecting to the wireless network.

Poor connection strength

Sometimes you will get a false low signal strength indication, but here's something to try anyways.
Imagine if we lived in a society where all TV signals came in on the same channels.
If you are watching channel 11, but 3 other tv stations are broadcasting along with the one you want to watch, it takes a lot more effort to get the information you want from the one station you are trying to watch.
So lets say you and your tv station strike up a deal, and they move to channel 6...and nobody else in the area is on channel 6...great, now you can watch your program effortlessly.

Wireless can be like that, and most routers are factory configured to channel 11.
Look in your router manual or pdf guide or whatever instructions you have for it, and change the wireless channel.
I have found in the past that you can go from poor signal with frequent disconnects, to full signal strength at the highest speed and no disconnects, just by choosing a better channel (and yes, I usually pick 6 first, and only try others if necessary).

Try disabling the onboard wireless adapter- the two may be conflicting w/ each other. The other thing I can think of is try a system that does NOT have wireless onboard (a desktop for instance)- that way you could see if the issue is indeed the internal connection's broadcast interfering with the usb adapter

Check to make sure that you don't have any cordless phones in the area or ductwork directly below your computer between the adapter and the router.

I cant seem to pick up a very strong signal. Do i need an antenna booster?

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arid welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Xbox 360 wireless adapter not finding network

Hello Sir,

Reset your AX by holding a pin or pen tip and count to 20.
Plug Airport Express
Wait a few minutes

1. Open Airport Utility
2. Manual Setup
3. Airport Icon -> Wireless Mode -> Join a wireless network
4. Network Name -> Enter the SSID of your Linksys router
5. Choose the same wireless security that you are using on your Linksys Router
6. Wireless Password -> Enter the wireless key that is on your Linksys router.

In the Music Icon, you should be able to find "Enable iTunes"

AX will continue to blink for a bit, perhaps a minute, while it searches and connects to the Linksys Router.

Should turn green.

Good luck.
