    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

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.

Thanks and regards,

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

If that doesn't work then upgrade the firmware of the router.
Firmware is the software of the router. After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you should reset the router and reconfigure the router.

On the setup for your wireless network through your router, you have to allow access for other devices. Your internet provider should also be able to walk you through this process as they did for me when I had the exact same problem.

Can no longer pick up router signal


Does the wireless light still lit on the router? You can try changing the channel on the router (1 6 or 11) ans moving the antenna. If those things did not work upgrade the firmware of the router and reset to factory default. Do not forget to save the configuration file before you reset to factory default.

Cant get wirless lap top pick up router


I know it sounds stupid but a lot of people just forget to turn on the wireless switch.

You may want to check first if the router is being picked up by other computers just to eliminate the possibility of a busted router. If no other computers can pick up your Router's signal then it's the router that you need to replace. If other computers can pick up your router's signal, then it's the computer's wireless card that's busted.

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.
