Distance from TX to RX possible too great

Have the router in the computer room in building approx 50 feet to workshop with the RX but no go, how long could you use a coax as a carrier? or could I use the existing antenna on the TX and purchase a directional antenna for the RX

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.

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.

Loosing internet connection every 15 minutes


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 Linksys router.

Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

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

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: Linksys 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.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router

Wireless-g router can only extend it's wireless signal up to 50 to 75 feet. You can use a wireless signal extender to be able to extend the signal further. And yes, you may have password on the wireless network.

You can buy a bigger antenna. You can find them on websites like directron, or any other computer website. It's called a high gain antenna. Wireless signals are greatly reduces when they have to go through certain surfaces, like walls, brick and the like. Another thing you can do it put the wireless router closer inbetween them. Or even up in the attic.

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.

Where should I place my router?


This describes moving equipment, positioning antennas, and avoiding obstacles. When optimizing your existing equipment, consider: * Placing antennas in a good location, at a good angle. * Avoiding physical things that block signals. * Reducing the interference from other things that transmit radio waves. Before starting adjustment, make sure that antennas and cables are securely fastened! If your network has more than a couple wireless devices, before you move things, decide which wireless devices are transmitting the heaviest load. These links are important to optimize. NETGEAR products have automatic data rate fallback, which allows increased distances without losing connectivity. It also means that devices that are further away are inherently slower. Therefore the most critical links in your network are those where the traffic is high, and the distances are great. Optimize those, first. The ones that are least important are links that have little, occasional traffic, and which have a strong signal strength. Picking Good Locations for Antennas * Antennas should be in line-of-sight of one another, where possible. Put your face next to one antenna, to find whether the other is visible. * Place high, and clear of obstructions as practical. * Keep antennas 2 feet from metal fixtures such as sprinklers, pipes, metal ceiling, reinforced concrete, metal partitions. (However, antennas on roofs do not necessarily give the best results. ) * Keep away from large amounts of water such as fish tanks and water coolers. * Antennas transmit weakly at the base, where they connect. So don't expect good reception from the bottom of a router or access point. * For multi-story buildings, placing antennas at 45 degrees (diagonally) or 0 degrees (straight out parallel to the floor) may be most effective. Reducing Interference Avoid windows unless communicating between buildings. (Windows let in interference from the outside world.) Place antennas away from various electromagnetic noise sources, especially those in the 2400 ? 2500 MHz frequency band. Common noise-creating sources are: * Computers and fax machines (place wireless equipment no closer than 1 foot) * Copying machines, elevators and cell phones (no closer than 6 feet) * Microwave ovens (no closer than 10 feet)
