Poor wirless signal

The westell327w seems to be OK,however the wirless signal is crap. I have changed the channel once to see if there is any change. I can put a notebook 4feet form the unit and only get 1-2 bars for signal strength. Can the signal be improved?

    Ok, I too am experiencing a low signal and after researching the subject, I thought I would try changing the channel to see if it improves my signal. I finally got into the router settings, but when I change the channel to 1, it defaults back to 6. Channel 6 seems to be a popular channel in my neighborhood, so i think it would be good to switch to a different channel. Why won't it allow me to change it?

Hi HHC,

You can try resetting the Westell to defaults, but pressing a thin pin, (Paperclip works great!) into the reset hole, in the back, and holding it in for 10 sec. You could also try using the lowest channel you. Most Westell's I have worked with have good wireless range, though. Test your laptop at a nearby hotspot, i.e. Starbucks. McDonalds, etc. If it is not the laptop, (Averatec laptops have horrible range!) and the reset don't fix it, have it replaced.

Good Luck!
