Various companies make repeaters, devices taht you can place within range of the original router, and it will relay signals to further distant devices.

D-link used to make one...
DWL-G800AP High Speed 2.4GHz (802.11g) Wireless Range ExtenderI owned one, and it worked well, to get a signal from one end of a house to the other.

I don't think they make one anymore, but Belkin makes a F5D7132, which retails for about 70 bucks, but can be had to less than 30 if you shop wisely.

Since I can't tell what kind of wireless router you have, you could also consider getting a newer router, especially if yours is only B capable, as the G has been standard for years, and they just agreed on the N standard.

You would be able to buy another wireless router and set it up as a bridge to boost your signal strength but I would suggest getting an ethernet over mains adapter and then you can run the internet through the wiring already in the house also being able to move it wherever you need it as long as you're near a socket.

There is issue of low signal strength showing in Cisco Aironet 1131. how to resolve it?


Signal strength can have a lot to do with where the router is compaired to where you sit at your pc/ laptop. If you have a house with thick walls you should go for a N type router rather than the G (standard router type). but a simple way to boost signal is to put a pice of tinfoil behind the anntenae of the router, directing the signal to where your computer is and not letting it just dissipate into the walls of the house in all directions.
hope this helps, but remessage if I have not been clear enough ;)

Im connecting through my neighbor cab only get about 17% is ther anything i can do from my house to boost my ps3 antenna


You could move your ps3 to the wall closest to their house. lol.


Assuming they are letting you piggyback their internet.

1. You could try pointing the antennas toward each other.

2. Another thing you can try it building a can-tenna. Sometimes you can use a pringle can or something similar to direct the antenna signals toward the source in a more focus fashion. I've gotten to it work in some buildings that seem to absorb wireless signals.

3. You could get a cheap router to boost your signal and set it up as a repeater/access point. Some routers do not offer the access point idea but you can flash them with firmware at dd-wrt.com; just make sure you pick a compatible router.

The ploblem is In need the solution of wire less network to build in the big house.


I presume you need Internet access in this house using a wireless network.
The best place to locate the wireless router is in a spot centrally located where the radio signals can reach the rooms where the computers are located. The DSL or cable modem/connection would also need to be in this area so it can connect to the wireless router.
If the wireless router is in a multi-storey house and the floor slab and walls are concrete and/or brick, then the radio signals will be impeded and the signal strength to some rooms will be weak.
In such circumstances, it maybe better to install network cables from these rooms to the wireless router, or install wireless access point repeaters to increase wireless coverage.
If you are not sure how to setup and install this network, then I suggest you get help from a computer savy friend or from your computer friendly shop.

Need to boost my wireless signal for remote laptop


It's almost a DIY deal, but how close are you to Corpus?

The unit you need is a Wireless access point. My favorite, fairly inexpensive, WAP is made by TP Link. http://www.tplink.com/products/product_des.asp?id=116

You can start with one, at ***********'s, add an external antenna, and set it up as a client pointing to your wireless internet connection. If that doesn't work, you duplicate the equipment set up as a wireless access point at your location.

Post back if you need purchasing help or are near Corpus.

Unfortunately the range on a G router is usually reliable to about 200 ft or so, depending on obstructions. There is no way to boost the 802.11g signal. You'd be looking at upgrading your router and card to 802.11n, which would give you increased range. .

Im just trying to get wifi and interet but i cant get a access point in range wat do i do


Hi :)

In order to obtain wireless internet you need the following

1) Wireless Access Point.
2) A device capable of getting these signals

this is a common mistake when you first obtain wifi. Although the signal is wireless it still has to come from somewhere. Wifi is generally a short range system (I say generally because there is that new "Internet Stick" thing that Rogers? is renting and it is the same wifi you would have @ home but its distributed accross thier towers so you have internet most of the time from anywhere). You still need ot go and get Internet Service into your home, then distribute that signal wirelessly accross the house (in reallity its more than the house the point is the signal is being distributed from somewhere nearby) VIA Wireless Router. Even if you could find an Access Point 90% chances that the system is locked and needs a pw so that people cant just steal another persons signal and bog them down and pay for their internet basically.

Now. If that option isnt suitable for now you can obtain Free Wifi Signal from a number of places

1) Free WiFi is offered @ most public/government buildings (ie Library, Courthouse, Registries, etc etc)

2) Appartment buildings and Condoes are always a good place to check for an unprotected network to piggy back off (this isnt as shady as it sounds if its temporary, infact WiFi systems have backups in them that auto detect and connect to unprotected networks should yours lose signal for any reason)

Note Wi Fi systems signal strength and speed are affected by a couple factors

1) The strength of the incoming internet signal (signal is reduced the longer it flows in the lines to get to you or your pc) (IE long cords between wall and modem or device etc etc etc) Signal strength is also dependant on what you purchase/pay monthly of course (IE DSL Dial Up Or Cable)

2) the quality (usually depends on the price of the unit) of the Router you purchase and its ability to distribute that signal at distance

3) The Wireless Adaptor the device has and its range (depends on price and quality of that unit)

4) Distance from the router is a given but from what ive learned Copper Piping and Copper wires in houses / condos/ apartments tend to block signal strength.

2wire gateway signal range problems


1. Put the router in the highest location possible in the house.
2. Make sure the gateway is installed in the center of the house rather than in a corner of house, so it will cover area on all sides.
3. Make Sure you dont have any devices that may interfere with the signal eg. cordless phone , close to the gateway.
4. Use channel 3 or 7.

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.

There are several ways to boost the signal from your router. One, you could try moving it to a central location of the house..the more walls and obstacles, the worse the signal. Try moving any cordless phones away from due to the wireless phones transmitting on the same frequency causing interference. You could also purchase a repeater from an electronics store..I believe AirLink makes one. These devices intercept the original signal and act as a booster..you would try to center this device in your home as well. You could also purchase a better antenna for your router with a higher gain output. Just some suggestions.

Good Luck
