There are a couple more questions

  1. Is it a removable antenna on the wireless router e.g. 5db or 7db gain. you could just get better antennas to increase signal strength for distance.
  2. E-bay has a linear antenna you assemble with a usb wireless network adapter attached.

I have a wavecom receiver model Rx 999 RF-Link a friend gave me I was wondering what it is for


The RX999 and the TX888 pair up to allow you to transmit audio/video signals from a device (like a TV) in one room to a receiving device in another room, without wires. Actually, they could both be in the same room!! My experience is that they work reasonably well, as long as the distance is not too great (I have had success up to about 100 feet) and there is no thick barrier between transmitter and receiver. For example, I wouldn't expect much success if one of the the two was in a steel/concrete bank vault. I have not used mine in about 17 years. I just dug them out and I am about to fire them up. Wish me luck.

Netgear65 n750 not effective 40 ft. away


If the router has "N" value it should run a good distance away, even to the neighbors home. If "G" 30 Feet to 50 feet max.
40 Feet is difficult if passing through thick walls or steel buildings. If it is not an "N" router, then you need that or an Extender system. See TigerDirect for hardware replaements.

I have a linksys E1200 can i increase the range ,slow at about 50 '


The strength of the signal is proportional to the SQUARE of the distance, e.g., 1 foot == 100%, 2 feet == 25%, 5 feet == 4%.

Move the router and the computer closer together, with fewer signal-blocking walls between the two devices.

Move the router onto the same floor (basement, main, upper) as the device.

How far does cisco ae1000 transmit


Hello,
The distance this device will do depends on your connection to it, be it on the 5.8ghz or .4ghz frequency. Some people get about 50-70% at 50feet, 25-50% at 100+ feet. If you have a clear line of sight to the router you may get up to 200+ feet. It really depends on your building structure and the amount of radio interference around.

Usually route modems provide means to linking resources between computer devices . An absence of the computers that provides resources is observable that the router modems continues to blink least with resources sharing taking place. Unless that devices were disconnected mometarily causing signal miscommuciations requires ascertaining main system units to restablish networking. Ascertain that each connection devices, cables, also wireless features has least been alterlated.

Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router:MFG suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.

Airport card only works in same room as router


Do you have a cordless phone in the apartment?
how many rooms do you have and in which room is the signal low? What router do you have?

Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.

Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the router may cause conflict with other routers within your network range. change the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Can a 1800HG gateway in my garage/workshop link *wirelessly* to my 2wire 2700 HG-B wifi AP internet in the house?


try going onto http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J30&THISPAGE=J29&NEXTPAGE=J30 on the computer connected to the 1800hg and set the router onto bridge mode (deselect enable routing). You might be able to set the two routers to connect then from here: http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J09&THISPAGE=J30&NEXTPAGE=J09 or somewhere else in the MDC, not sure if it will work as I haven't tried it, but I hope it helps.
