    Here in Portland Oregon we have been "wired" into metro fi, which was to be free wireless internet access for the entire area. The city put the works in motion and metro fi footed the bill for the transmitters and other equipment. But as the transmitters came online, we found out that metro fi was free wireless access only if we were standing in our driveways, or other open areas.

    It seems metro fi has such a weak signal that it will not even transmit through window glass in some places...BUT! for a paltry $100, a special signal booster can be purchased, and Voila! we can access our "free" internet---with all of the advertisements, etc...

    I was wondering if, in the spirit of the old citizen's band radio outlaw "linears", is there some way to boost ourselves up to our free gift wifi, without forking over the $100 to this crooked service provider who sells their own "fixes"?

    It's not like we can change our "crystals" like in the old scanners and cb's, but there must be some similar remedy to this misrepresented service...anyone?

Weak signal problem can be fixed by firmware update however, if the client computer is too far from the router, it can't be helped. What you need is a wireless range expander. What it does is give you another 100% signal or atleast stronger signal to the spot or area where you have a weak or dead signal.

My wireless internet does not work and it shows that it is not even downloaded onto my computer


swithched on your wireless and check if the icon from you machine (wireless icon) shows some light. If yes but problem persist, check wireless connectivity if it is strong or weak (if weak this means that you a have a poor signal from wireless spot). If no light appearing, re-install your wireless driver.

To test it whether the signal is too weak or not, take your laptop closer to where the router is and try to connect that way. If it does connect then the wireless signal from the router is too weak in which case get a range expander or purchase a router with extended range.
