Inconsistant wireless signal in house


Have you checked that the signal on your new cable modem/router is strong enough to reach your wireless devices? You may need to re-site the cable modem to get better coverage in your home. Your old one probably worked fine in the same position but that doesn't mean a new one will. There are a few things you can try to get the best of the range it has. Internal walls and furnishings all play a part in reducing the effective range of the router. Most routers will give you at least 50 metres indoors. Keep the router as high and as far away from walls as you can, this will greatly improve the range. Try to ensure the router is not screened by large near by metal objects such as steel PC cases, these will absorb wireless signals and reduce the range.

I have two netgear routers wgr614v7 and wgr614v10. how can i use one of the as a repeater?? wgr614v7 does not have wireless repeating function..


Most routers (Wireless-G) have about the same range. However, the actual range in real-time environment is much less. I think that your network would work fine if you place the router at a suitable location i.e. at the central location/ height. Also, based on my on-site experience, I suggest that you may relocate the router to another location depending upon your network environment. It has always helped me a great deal. Placing the router avoiding obstacles such as concrete pillars, walls, steel cabinets etc in the signal path have remarkable effect on range and overall performance of the network.
2. There are two ways to increase the range/ coverage area (i) Adding external antenna of appropriate type (ii) Installing additional Access Point (AP) connecting it with the existing AP wirelessly in line-of-sight (creating WDS) OR connecting the two APs with wire, which is a better option as it provides robust and reliable connectivity between APs.
3. So, in short, to extend the range, it is recommended that you may place the additional router at an appropriate location as described above and connect it to the existing router through wire (CAT-6 Cable). (The router would communicate through wire and the range of your networ would extended up to the placement/ location of the additional router. Rename the additional access point for easy identification and make it secure.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

How can use the router as in between station to get a stronger signal downstairs


Most routers (Wireless-G) have about the same range. However, the actual range in real-time environment is much less. I think that your network would work fine between two floors if you place the router at a suitable location i.e. at the central location/ height. Also, based on my on-site experience, I suggest that you may relocate the router to another location depending upon your network environment. It has always helped me a great deal. Placing the router avoiding obstacles such as concrete pillars, walls, steel cabinets etc in the signal path have remarkable effect on range and overall performance of the network.

First, I appreciate the details provided by you. It could be better if you could let me know the make/ model of Access Point. Below are typical ways to address the issues highlighted by you:
1. YOU CAN RESET THE ROUTER TO FACTORY SETTINGS
You may reset router to factory setting from the reset button on the back side of the router. Press the button for few seconds, the lights on the front would blink and the router would restart with factory setting. Please note that ALL SETTING WOULD BE LOST...AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE CONFIGURATIONS AND SETTING ALL OVER AGAIN. Also, checkout the reset
procedure for your specific access point model.

2. Most routers have about 200m range. However, the actual range in real-time environment is much less. Generally the antenas are omni-directional, however, directional antenna can be used to improve range in one direction.There are two ways to increase the range/ coverage area (i) Adding external antenna of appropriate type (ii) Installing additional Access Point (AP) connecting it with the existing AP wirelessly in line-of-sight (creating WDS) OR connecting the two APs with wire, which is a better option as it provides robust and reliable connectivity between APs.

3. Based on my on-site experience, I suggest that you may relocate the AP to another location depending upon your network environment. It has always helped me a great deal. Placing the AP at the desk level, avoiding obstacles such as concrete pillars, walls, steel cabinets etc in the signal path have remarkable effect on range and overall performance of the network.

HOPE IT HELPS...Let me know if you need any further clarification assistance specific to you AP make and model. Don't forget to rate the solution if I could have been of any help!
Goodluck!

Dsl works when connected directly to laptop, does not work via dlink but airport shows a signal


This is a common problem with this router. Try to update the firmware from dlink.com and reboot the router after the update. Also the range is not great with this router, so you may have problems if you're only in the next room. The only solution with this model - short of getting a different router is to restart the router when there's no wireless connection - sometimes multiple times (turn off for 1 minute, then turn it on again). Besides that there's not much you can do - it's just not a good product.

How can I change the lan IP address?


Logon to the wireless router:

Default:
Username: (leave blank)
Password: admin

The first screen to appear is the setup screen.
You can chang ethe LAN IP address here and press [Save] then [Exit]

Thye default IP LAN address is 192.168.1.1
You must use a class C address for the LAN side of the router.
And all of your network devices (PC's) must be on the same "network":

Two examples:
Router address is 192.168.1.1
PC's must be in the range: 192.168.1.2 thru 192.168.1.254

Router address is 192.168.5.12
PC's must be in range: 192.168.5.1 thru 192.168.5.254 (except 5.12)

I lose the WiFi connected BR 590CW printer


The disconnect-problem was caused by the settings of the WiFi-router.
The settings are:
Capture(wlanadv.beacon) Beacon Interval: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 100, Capture(hwlad2.milli) Milliseconds, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 1 - 65535) Capture(wlanadv.dtim) DTIM Interval: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 1, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 1 - 255) Capture(hwlad2.frathrh) Fragmentation Threshold: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 2346, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 256 - 2346) Capture(wlanadv.rts) RTS Threshold: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 2347, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 0 - 2347)
This gives an optimal performance of the router, The default setting work fine for the printer, but gives less performance.
I now use a seperate wifi-router for the printer.
All is fine now.
