    My WG111GE router works perfectly as long as it is in the same room as the router. I moved it to my daughters room (whole idea of buying it!!) and the signal is so low that i can not connect to the internet at all. I phone sky they were help said it could be something metal in the room!! helpful as most of my daughters electrical equipmen is metal!! Can I do anything to increase the range so that she can pick up signal or can I buy anything that will actually work. P.S this was the SKY recommended product!!

You can increase the RX-TX power of your router. Some routers come with option that you can increase the range of them not. However Open source solutions are doing well like www.dd-wrt.com depends on your router it can cascade the the range many times. Alternate solution is to get 2X - 4X Range WiFi adaptors that can be extended by booster antennas. Good Luck

My netgear G54/N150 wifi usb micro adapter wont connect to the internet


Your computer operating system makes the network choice. If you're using windows, look in the lower right-hand corner and you should see signal-strength bars like on your cell phone. Click on those bars and you should see a list of available wireless networks. Click on the network for your uverse router and choose "Disconnect." Then click on the network for your hotspot and choose "Connect." Then your computer should connect to your hotspot.

I installed a new Zonet 1605 wireless adapter so i could pick up the wireless internet from my niegbor it does not work why?


You are not able to pick up your neighbor's network can be due to various reasons.
1) Check if the adapter has been installed properly. Check the device status in the device manager. It should say "This device is working properly"
2) The distance might be too much for you to receive the wireless signals.
3) Might be having any other wireless devices like a cordless phone near your computer which may cause interference.
4) Your neighbor's wireless router might be transmitting signals in 802.11a or 802.11n standards which is not compatible with Zonet 1605 adapter.
5) Your neighbor would have password protected his wireless network to avoid illegal use of his internet. These days there is more importance given for wireless security.

Don't have a router just yet just have the usb wireless card


This usb adapter will allow you to pick wireless signals of wireless router. If you have a free wifi like hotspot airport wifi then you can connnect to it and use wireless internet. Othjer wise you got to have a wireless router with broadband connection before you can utilize wireless internet facility.

Hope this answers your query.

The newer 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz wireless routers should reach a couple of hundred feet. Make sure you do not have your SSID hidden. If you do, you will need to manually enter it into the xbox settings along with other security you have on the router.

SMC EZ Connect 2862W-G does not see Linksys network


It shows that your wireless router and wireless adapters are both working. One thing to try is changing your wireless channel. Since you are already using 11, try maybe 1 or 9. Check if your SMC adapter will pick up the wireless signal.

By the way, how far is your computer (using the SMC adapter) to your wireless router?

Wireless adapter


I believe a router is necessary, however if you have an IP address and your adapter picks up the signal then I suppose it works. Check if you have an IP address at http://whatismyip.com/.

Connection failure after period of time


If it's possible try moving the router to another telephone point that is nearer to the problem reciever. Unfortunately all sorts of objects can divert the wireless signal, something as simple as a door. If your wireless adapter picks up a signal of 57% it may also be very low on the 'bps' transfer and may only show as limited or no connectivity. The signal to the router may be average but it still has to transfer data to enable a network and internet connection.
