You have options:

First on your current wireless router - make sure it is high enough off the floor and not next to other electronics that broadcast a signal like a wireless home phone. I personally have mine about 5 feet off the floor and my signal travels over 200 feet (my neighbor rides my line all the time)

If that does not improve signal - you can either add a wireless access point to another area of your house or you could add a small switch that would need to be hard wired back to your router. Both will require a hard wire back to the router.

One advantage of a small switch is that it has more ports that you could use for other devices like a Blue Ray, Game Console etc. downside is it is hardwired to all your devices. Keep in mind that Cat5E cable limit is 300 feet.

My setup again is a wireless router in my home office, from there I have a hard wire that runs to my living room next to my cable hook up. I have a 12 port Gig switch that has a Blue Ray, 3 game consoles, 2 PC's and the TV.we also have a wireless access port for my wifes laptop. All the other rooms while the wireless signal is excellent we also have hard wire jacks run to all rooms in the house.

A wireless access point is

There are products called access points to extend the coverage of a router. D-Link offers such a product which should work with your wireless router. You would put is between your current router and the end point which you want to have access. It will carry the wireless connection to that point. There will be some configuration work to be done. Another option is to get a newer router. The n series units should extend the coverage further through your house.

Your best bet is to use a wireless extender, this will extend the range.
Google search for these devices.

How can i boost and speed up my Wifi network reception ?


Firstly download WiFi Analyser from Google Play store and compare you WiFi with others in your area. This will enable you to change the channel. Change channel by logging into your router - 192.168.1.1.
Try moving your router to a more central place in your home and use the analyser to check if any improvement.
Next try a wireless extender. This will drop your speed a little but give a stronger signal in weak areas.
Also try power line adapters.
If you are using a few devices ensure that you are not mixing wireless g and n products at same time. Using a g product will mean that your whole wireless will be running at that speed even when your other device is n. If you need both connect another g router to one of the n router LAN ports with dhcp disabled. That way you can have the two devices connected at the correct speed.
Some routers will let you connect a bigger aerial which could boost you reception. Some devices have very poor wireless antennas - seems you what you pay for in this area.

Antonio,
I have see this in the past at my place and would recommend you the following,
Restart your device
Restart your Home internet connection
Connect your TV/any other device directly to the Modem
Or Improve your Wi-Fi Signal by
If you're connecting over Wi-Fi and the above steps didn't help, try some or all of these steps to improve your wireless connectivity:
  • Move your router to a new location to improve signal strength--you'll usually see better reception throughout your home if the router is in a central location.
  • Wireless interference can cause big problems when trying to connect over Wi-Fi. Cordless phones, microwave ovens, or other wireless devices near your router can all cause wireless interference, so move them away from your wireless router.
  • Elevate your router off the floor. A router on top of a bookshelf or desk will give you better reception than one that's hidden behind it.
Hope This helps

Reception very poor and sometimes nothing at all


Move the adapter much closer to your wireless router.
The reception should achieve "excellent".
Make sure that the antenna on the router is vertical,
unless you have more than one antenna.
In that case, follow the manufacturer's recommend for positioning and alignment of the antennas.

Be;lons my belkin g-plus router transmits a very weak signal to the 2nd fl of my small ranch style home. what gives?


Maybe it's not so strange, it depends on the distance. One possible problem could be caused by other wireless devices (included telephones e.t.c.) at the are. Try to get in the router's control panel with your browser, navigate to the wireless section and locate the channel. Change it to another one (you may have to change from auto to manual in order to be able to change the channel). Try some channels to get the best solution for your problem. If this didn't work, sorry to said, but you have to use a booster or move the router closer to the 2nd floor.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Locate at the router's management page the Basic Wireless settings. At this section locate the line displaying "wireless channel" and change it at any channel you like, your connected devices will auto locate the new channel and connect without any problem. This happens from time to time, especially when a strong wireless transmitter is (or comes) near the Wi-Fi area (maybe a wireless phone is your problem or something like that).

Take care that in case you make a change at another setting, your connected devices may not locate the new setting, so you will have to connect to the router using the ethernet connection in order to recover your problem.

My broadcom 802.11g network adapter disables every time I try to connect it to my linksys wireless router.


Check the various wireless access points near you, if any of them are broadcasting on the same channel as your wireless router, then change it to a channel that is unused.
Also check the signal strength of your wireless router, if it is less than say 60% move your laptop or your wireless router away from walls (especially concrete walls and metal/foil walls) and locate it higher to improve radio reception.
