You can by accessing the 2wire's setup page and playing with the wireless channels. But then again this also depends on the flooring material you have for the 2nd floor, 2 feet thick concrete floors block wireless signals.

Signal booster


Before trying to boost signals, check the aerial wires are connected in your laptop and your router is working properly.

Poor signal range - I have just moved to a new three storey house. My router is installed at the front of the house on the main/mid floor. I receive a very weak signal on my laptop in my kitty corner...


The general rule for WiFi is to have the router placed at a reasonable height above the items that wish to use it. This is because the radio waves travel downwards
It was probably a repeater that was recommended to boost the signal.

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

Verify that it is indeed a wifi signal problem by moving the laptop upstairs temporarily.

If this fixes the problem, you're getting poor wifi signal downstairs. Not much you can do with the elements at hand. So try adding another element: install a wifi signal repeater (around US$ 25) somewhere in the middle. Or you can run a cable (or use Powerline Ethernet - around US$ 100) to downstairs, and there install a wifi access point (US$ 30-60). Or directly connect the laptop to the newly installed network wire.

If the problem isn't fixed, you have some other problem on the laptop: most likely a faulty network configuration. Verify against whatever PC you have upstairs; they should have identical configurations except their IP address (if fixed instead of DHCP).

Just to be on the safe side verify the laptop is properly operating and immune from virus and malware. Not all slowdowns are the system's fault.

Happy navigation!

Weak signal 60 feet away at neigbhoor's


Some routers just don't put out strong signals. The problems could be wiring in/around/at your house or neighbors....causing weak signal. Are the signal strengths strong in your house?

We have super signal strength on ours upstairs (we have a bi-level house) but downstairs the signal is very low. All the wiring in the house and anything electronic or otherwise can block it.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

I have a verizon westell 7500 gateway router. Will I be able to use a netgear WG111 2v wireless adapter to get a stronger signal from it for my laptop?


I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Is the signal too weak?
You could use the router to extend the range with the proper configuration. Either that, or purchase a wireless extender that does just that.
You won't get a stronger signal. A router does not boost a signal. It can pick up the signal and rebroadcast it using a different IP.

Yes, adding a repeater closer to the laptop will repeat or boost the signal so you get a better signal. You can also try replacing the standard antennas with better ones.
