If you look on eBay there are hundreds of add on aerials that give you plenty of signal boost. I bought several recently and they really do work. I even added a +24dB booster on my main wireless hub now I can really use the power of wireless and roam away from the house and the office!

Just enter "wireless aerial" or "wireless antenna" as the search term and you shoud literally get hundreds of results.

What can I hook up to this tv to get basic channels. Not cable?


Hi,

Depending on your location and distance from the available broadcast outlets, you may be able to receive basic commercial broadcast channels using a simple inside or outside ad-on antenna, available from most electronic retail stores or on line vendors such as Amazon, Ebay, Best Buy, etc.

You can find sever antenna's at various locations. They glue right to your window in the front or rear of the vehicle and amplify the signal. Bestbuy, Walmart, RadioShack, and other stores such as these carry a wide variety of these.

Will a hp office jet 5610 all in one be able to go wireless


Hi,

HP Officejet 5610 does not has feature to go wireless as it is Non-Network printer however there is a way out if you want to make it wireless.

You need a HP BT 450 Wireless adapter. This acts like a wireless device to make any HP Printer wireless capable to be connected to a router or Laptop/PC.

You can get this on www.hpshopping.com website or in any local store like bestbuy, Costco, Walmart etc.

Ron

Make sure that the antenna on your wireless router is not damaged or pointed the wrong way (down or the the side). Also if you look under the cover under your laptop make sure that the wireless antenna is properly plugged in to your laptop's radio. I have seen a few loose ones here and there.

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal


This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

Can't connect to internet since purchasing wrt100.


What is your laptop name, model#?
All "wireless" laptops have software that can "scan" for , and "repair" wireless connections. Bottom right corner, do you have a pix [picture] of a monitor ( with what looks like a 'radar' signal coming out ? ) right click mouse and you should see a menu, left mouse click " repair " and follow directions.
that you loose the signal after 3 ft. could suggest that your antenna is not connected right, that the coil ( that makes up the antenna ) is 'opened' or that you did not configure the wireless part of the router.

Toshiba televsion is saying digital channel signal strenth is low


if you're using antenna, (most likely)you need to adjust your antenna to where it picks up the best signal. The picture comes in clear with good audio and doesn't pixelate often.
