Re: signal problems

This link indicates there may be an issue with hiding the SSID in the wireless router. A security item employed by some users. IF this is the case consider broadcasting the SSID and employing WEP or WPA encryption in the wireless configuration for both the router and the adapter cards to secure the wireless connections..

Wireless Problem

You actually don't want to be right next to the router, depending on the protocol of your route you should be between 10-100 feet away from the router. Certain technologies can degrade your signal. Microwaves, cordless phones, your neighbors wireless.

Ihave an exizting home network with one wireless router and i want to add a second wireless route

Thank you for using FixYa

Yes that is possible but keep in mind that after about 5 computers it may start to slow down the connection, especially if they are all running at the same time. You need to get an ethernet cable and go from one of the available ports on the first router and plug it into the input on the second router and then try it. That is what people do with small networks all the time, so it should work for you.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

My Netgear Modum in my office which is next to the main socket in my lounge keeps flashing orange I have a phone in there as well and when I lift the reciever up and leave it the Modum reverts to green and...

if you are using wireless cordless phone next to your Router it will interfere with your wireless it reduces the signal so i will suggest you to move your cordless phone to somewhere else but of course it will still have effect on your connection ,most cordless phones and wireless routers operates in same Baseband its inteferance.. your microwave also effects your wireless .. i hope that will help your problem.

My laptop cannot connect to it, it says the signle is to low but my laptop is next to it. please help and try to fix this problem thank you :)


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Regarding your concern, placing a computer right next to the router is not a very good idea. Why? because it is a source of EMI (Electro-Magetic Interference), which causes:
>Inability to connect
>Intermittent Connection
>Undetected wireless signal
>and very poor wireless signal

Not only that, the equipments below are sources of EMI's
>Halogen Lamps
>Cellular phones
>Wireless phones
>Electronic Devices
>Fire Alarms
>Computer sitting on metal surfaces
>Computer sitting on carpeted floors

Here's a suggestion:
>Place the computer at least 6ft away from the router
>Make sure that there are no equipments mentioned above, within 3ft near the router
>Open a browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, or Ubuntu) anything will do.
>Then access your router's page by typing on the address bar of your browser and hit Enter.
>Logon to your router by leaving the Username blank and in the Password box just type "admin" (without the quotation marks " " )
>Click on the Channels and SSID link under Wireless. (as shown below)
>The only thing you can play with wil be the channels.
>There only are 3 Clear Channels that you need to choose from. Channel 1, 6, and 11
>Switch channels between those 3 mentioned above and check which channel has the Excellent signal and save the settings by clicking Save below the page

Thank you for choosing FixYa! I hope it helped.

check the range in which you are using the laptop.please use the laptop within 6 meters if you go more than that it is difficult to recieve the signal.

if stil the problem presists then try connecting with wireless internet with some other laptop if the problem presists then it the modem problem service or replace it. if it works fine then the problem is on laptop.check with the dealer.

Wireless connection disconnects when not next to router

make sure that your not using Cordless phone and dont sit near to metal cabinet and see the direction of Wiress Router/Access points.

just make sure you get excellent or good signal from the wireless device, and delete ur existing wireless profile and re-create new one.

My router routes to my laptop within my house and

The possible cause is the router is not able to extend the signal to that range. Try using a range extender to boost your wireless signal. Signal strength depends on the router. So adding a range extender should solve this issue
