Get the router up to a highest point in the room. If it serves multiple rooms, put it at the highest point in the biggest room. Be realistic about where it can reach too given a basic G router. If it serves two floors then the basement corner will not have 100 percent

Something is blocking wireless signal, i live in flat so in one room there is wireless router and in other room signal is very poor sometimes it's not connecting. i tryed 3 diffrent routers the last one is...


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...

Router issues in my apartment.


When to moved into the penthouse, there are more walls between the wireless router and the laptop in the bedroom. The walls are probably reinforced concrete walls which will stop or weaken the radio waves penetrating into different rooms. When you lived in a house this was not a problem.
The only way to solve this problem is to move the wireless router near an opening such as a door and move the laptop as close as possible to the wireless router to get a better signal strength.
The outer way is to install a wireless repeater or connect a long network cable to the router and the laptop.

Wireless range/signal seems very weak


ok the problem is that ur using a wireless b modem
the wireless b is the shortest of the classes of wireless routers
you should go with a G or N series
this should solve ur isse
the B series is for one room operations then the signal has to go through ur home that is more resistance on the signal
you could also buy a 2wire modem /router at best buy
that covers ur whole property with ur wireless range
but u will pay the same in one router as this 2wire single unit

Gamin adapter set up, plz help


Hi Shawn. Does yout PS2 connect when it is downstairs on the wireless? Reason I ask is wifi routers tend to transmit horizontally, and are very weak in vertical transmittions.
If you are connecting while you are own stairs, we can assume the WEP is not an issue.

WEP setting vary on different adapters. Some allow your to use 5 digits for your wep code, others require the full 10 digits. If you are using just 5, say 12345, try putting a 3 infront of each digit, i.e. 3132333435. If you are using all 10, on bought the adapters, this shouldn't be a issue.
Of course, if you can connect to while downstaris, this issue it mute.
You can also try changing channels. Channel 1 has more range than channel 8.
The last guess is that yoour router has less range than the Dlink.

See if any of those suggestions help, and let us know.

Good luck.
