Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I am running a DI 524 router which was installed by the retailer, but have been disappointed by the poor range I am getting, 10 metres at best and 6-7 metres as normal, the antenna as supplied with router is 2dBi and is said to have a range of 100metres. I have purchased an ANT 24-0700 antenna 7dBi with a range of 500 metres approx, but it has made no difference, is there a setting that could be made to improve things, I have the normal house hold things running and have tried re-positioning the antenna but again no luck.
Use repeater with wireless router.

Hello Wee Mich
You can check the documentation for your router HERE and see if there're any settings you can change.
Is there a lot of brick, concrete or metal in the walls of your home?
Have you tried using wireless repeaters?
They can improve things considerably under the right conditions.
The real issue is wireless radios work best LOS (line of site). So, even having a powerful antenna may not do much good if it can't get through the structures in your home.
Upgrading your wireless equipment, strategically locating your router, upgrading your devices' wireless antenae and using repeaters to effectively send signals 'round cornes can help a great deal.
Below are some common tips for improving your wireless network's performance.
