There are several likely causes, if the building has plaster walls it may have metal lath behind it blocking the signal.(this is fairly likely the cause) If there are high-power microwave transmitters within 2 or 3 km, can cause spotty interfering. Neighbors with a wireless router close to your wall can as well.
If you can move the router to a position across from the door between the rooms, you can test by connecting (wireless) your laptop near the router, then walk it into the other room (stay where you can see the router). If the laptop stays connected move across the room to a point where you did not have a signal previously, if you are still connected leave the laptop there and move the router back to its original location and recheck the laptops connection, if it is gone, it is your wall...

Hello
Try updating the firmware on the router.You need to log into the router using 192.168.1.0

Username =admin
password = admin or the word password.

Once in the routers home page check for updates and download and install.Also be sure any firewalls are not blocking the signal.
While your in the router set up a personal wep key for your wireless security.
There is a possibility your lossing signal to outside intruder.

1. did you first try to connect to the router via wire directly with it in the same room? then set up the wireless to work in the same room too.

2. once you've done that and it worked then move it to your bedroom. If it doesn't work there it could be that there is something inbetween the two rooms that is blocking the signal...ie a furnace can do that

3. if it won't work try relocating the router to another location. Try a different location in the same room first

but as i said , first get it set up and running in the same room so you know for sure it works.

Often times something unseen can be blocking the signal, such as heavy material (brick walls or bathroom piping). Try moving around the room and seeing if the signal is still poor.

Poor connection strength


Sometimes you will get a false low signal strength indication, but here's something to try anyways.
Imagine if we lived in a society where all TV signals came in on the same channels.
If you are watching channel 11, but 3 other tv stations are broadcasting along with the one you want to watch, it takes a lot more effort to get the information you want from the one station you are trying to watch.
So lets say you and your tv station strike up a deal, and they move to channel 6...and nobody else in the area is on channel 6...great, now you can watch your program effortlessly.

Wireless can be like that, and most routers are factory configured to channel 11.
Look in your router manual or pdf guide or whatever instructions you have for it, and change the wireless channel.
I have found in the past that you can go from poor signal with frequent disconnects, to full signal strength at the highest speed and no disconnects, just by choosing a better channel (and yes, I usually pick 6 first, and only try others if necessary).

Check to make sure the lead are firmly connected to the wireless card. If they are make sure that they are reversed. Also if you have a neighbor next door that has a computer with wireless, see if it picks up your router, that way we can determine if it is a network or computer issue.

When I go into other rooms I can't connect to router


How is the signal strength? Check and make sure the antennas are not loose. Is your house the old style concrete? Sometimes thick block or concrete walls are tough for the wireless signal to get through. They do make larger antennas or signal boosters for wireless routers. You may need to install one of these to boost signal strength. Also is it wireless B,G,or N? Wireless B has a very weak signal while wireless N has a very strong signal. Sometimes the router settings can be changed to adjust the signal strength and may be set too low also.

POOR SIGNAL STRENGTH BEING 10 FEET AWAY


Check the signal using a different computer, cell phone or game console. If the signal is OK, it is not a problem with the router.
Dropping these units can break the antennas, check for obvious damage, check the orientation (angle). If it looks bent, it may be broken. Sometimes cracks will occur where he connector is soldered to the circuit board. Open the case, retouch the solder connections, with a properly sized soldering iron. Some antennas are removeable, some are not, they all should read continuity if checked with a ohmmeter.

Belkin router


The fact that it sometimes works and sometimes not, would indicate that maybe your wireless signal strength is poor. Try moving the router and/or antenna and recheck the signal strength. If you would provide more details about the problem and your setup it may be helpful in diagnosing the problem.
