Question about Belkin Dual-Band Wireless A+G Desktop Network Card (F6D3000)
Using the belkin dual band wireless a+g destop network card in the master bedroom for media pc and it has difficulty receiving a signal from the Verizon Router in the next room. Is this typical? Is there a way to extend the range?
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
Nice diagrams on this web page too.
