No this is not typical if the Network card and router are just one room away. However electrical interference and walls do impede the signal.

Try moving the Router around to see if the signal improves.
You can also adjust the antenna and pointing it in the direction of the Router.
1. Position your wireless router (or wireless access point) in a central location.
2. Move the router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects. (Such as Metal file cabinets)
3. Replace your router's antenna.
Antennas supplied with your router are designed to be omni-directional, meaning they broadcast in all directions around the router. Upgrade to a hi-gain antenna that focuses the wireless signals only one direction. You can aim the signal in the direction you need most.
4. You can add wireless repeaters. (just the room next door this would be a last resort if all else fails)
5. Change your wireless channel. You may find one that will transmit a stronger signal.
6. Reduce wireless interference
If you have cordless phones or other wireless electronics in your home, your computer might not be able to "hear" your router over the noise from the other devices.. To quite the noise, avoid wireless electronics that use the 2.4 GHz frequency. Instead, look for cordless phones that use the 5.8 Ghz or 900 MHz frequencies.
7. Update your firmware or your network adapter driver

Prolly because out the box that router uses AES encryption. You can drop it down to say 64bit from the AES 256bit and most cell phones B network cards will understand 64bit. You will need to basically change the routers security and youtube has a ton videos show you how.

I have a 2wire and a wireless router Belkin34e. I cannot get the preception I need to watch my movienite streaming media player. I have a tv upstairs and downstairs and the preception is poor for bothl.


The best is to use an Ethernet cable.But if you cant wire up you will need that one of your device be downstairs.In order to do it you need to configure one of them as an access point bridging one router to the other.Or get a Wireless Extender that is a hardware devices that act as either bridges, allowing you to connect a wired device to a Wi-Fi network without need for additional cabling or networking configuring, or they act as repeaters, extending a wireless signal beyond the normal bounds of range.

You tried this one?

How about this one?
http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/499/kw/f6d3000

I did notice that there is no specified support for 64-bit versions of ANY OS,
and doesn't specify compatibility with any version of Vista or 7.

Try uninstalling any software and drivers you tried so far, then also remove the entry from Device Manager... THEN install one of the above drivers.

Since I purchased a Belkin N600 my download speed is about 30k/bps. My ISP says it's the N600. Help!!!


If you are wirelessly connecting you need to use a wireless card that supports dual band.
and then changnig the settings on the wireless card helps.
if you are wired the issue is with the router settings.
Upgrade the firmware on the router

see belkins website on how to do this:
