1. Try to raise the height of the wireless router and or put it in a window if you need the range outside.

2. Try switching the channel that you are running on as some channels work better than others.

3.Your next step would be going with a nema enclosure (water tight box) and runing the router via power over ethernet and a power over ethernet adapter for the top side (so you can power the router via ethernet cable) and from the roof or attic you should get the range that you need. Keep in mind this will void your warranty and ethernet surge suppressor would be a good idea. Don't forget the router also needs air to keep cool or it will overheat.

4 if all that fails then the next step is going with router that will accept a pigtail(an adapter that connects a wireless card to an N type connection that most wireless antennas use) and a directional wireless antenna.

good luck.

Which router you have there , How old is it ? Check the encryption level , Should be 64 bit encryption .. Make sure any other wireless device is not intrupting your wireless connection like cordless phone. Change the channel to 11 and change the Beacon Interval to 70 ,Fragmentation Threshold to 2306 and RTS Threshold to 2307, Now check you wireless strength, Post reply for more seps

I have wireless Internet! I have a laptop, I tried to connect to it~ It will connect to the router, but won't connect to the Internet! Help!


How many wired and wireless computers do you have ion the network.
Do you have any wired computer ?
Connect your laptop to the router with the Ethernet cable and try to access Internet. See if the wired connection is working or not.
If the wired connection is working then I think you will need to check the wireless settings of the router and the laptop.

How to connect your PS3 to the internet


In this guide I will go over the steps you need to take in order to connect your Ps3 to the internet either wired or wireless.

Wireless Connection
-Your home router should be configured for wireless and you should know your wireless routers security information. Make sure an Ethernet cable is not connected to the PS3.
-Turn on your console and select Network Settings under the Settings option in the main menu.
-Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and then select Yes when prompted.
-For the installation type select "Easy"
-Select "Wireless" when prompted for your connection type.
-Select "Scan". Your system will scan and show all available wireless access points within range.
-Select your home access point from the list.
-Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings
Make sure to select Test Connection to make sure the connection is working properly.

Wired Connection

You will have the same steps as a wireless connection, except once you select "Easy", you will be prompted for your wired connection settings. Normally, in a home environment, you are using DCHP and the IP address as well as DNS information is all obtained automatically from your router.

Be sure to select Test Connection afterwards

Ok. You should now be connected to the internet. Enjoy!

How to Connect a Laptop to a Wireless Router


  • 1 Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.
  • Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
  • Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
  • Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
  • Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
  • Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
  • Click on "Properties."
  • Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
  • Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Avable Networks" section.
  • Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
  • Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
  • Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

    My acer aspire one wont connect to internet. it says it is connected to wireless, and i have wired it to modem but the problem still persists. please help.


    Based on your description, the following is assumed.
    1. The service to your Internet Service Provider is through a cable or DSL modem.
    2. Internet service was initially set-up with your netbook directly connected to the modem.
    3. A wireless router was since added and is using the direct wired connection to the modem.
    4. The netbook is connected to the wireless access point being provided by the router.
    5. The netbook says it is connected to the wireless access point but still no internet access.
    The problem is likely due to the modem capturing the MAC address of the netbook when access to the internet servce was initially set up using the netbook directly connected to the modem and now the modem will only allow access with the netbook directly connected to it. You can check this out by reconnecting the netbook directly to the modem. It may be possible to "flush" the captured MAC by unplugging the AC power to the modem, waiting a few minutes and then powering back up with the router connected in place of the netbook. To make it easier, you may want connect your netbook directly to the router's LAN side to check if you now have internet access through the router. If you still don't have internet access, you will need to use your netbook to log onto the router to clone your netbook's MAC address for the router's WAN connection. The router's user guide/manual has directions on logging in and doing the MAC address clone. It will also have an explanation as to what is a MAC address.

    Connected but internet says diagnose connection


    Is there any computer able to access the Internet ?
    If this is the only computer then connect the computer to the router with the cable and see if it works.
    If you are able to access the internet with the cable connected to the router and computer then then the wired part is working. Check the wireless settings of the router. Also make sure that there is no static IP address set up on the wireless network connection.

    My computer doesn't connect to the wireless router. The router works, I can connect my Wi-Fi mobile phone to the router and get internet access


    did you set up your wireless connection using a wired internet connection. i have a netgear wireless system and tried to set it up without being 'wired' but you can not do it that way. you have to be connected to set it up, then you can configure it, and after that it should be ok. i actually went back to a 'wired' connection cos the netgear was very unreliable
