Every feet counts on Wifi access point placement.

Try to place this D-Link (DI-711) Router on the center of all your computers and laptops.

Take your time and try to lock into the old technology 802.11b (not 802.11g)

The old tech will give you better range. You have to set the D-Link and your pc/laptop to 802.11b (not mix with 802.11g)

Just take your time on the weekend and test out pure 802.11b encoding method in your setup.

250' outdoor
60' + and two walls on my Netgear AP running on old 802.11b encoding right now!

Hi, I'm having problems connecting to the router (Virgin) to my bedroom from lost of signal strength, so i brought Sitecom Wireless Range Extender 300N to boast the signal. I've installed the Range...


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.

I am having connection problems with this product, the NetGear Router WGR614. My computer that the router is connected to is in my family room and it works great in here, but when i am sitting in a chair...


HI, This is one of the problems associated with wireless connections in the home.
I have many clients in a similar sitauationa and where possible, I run an ethernet cable from the router to whereever the computer is to be used. Alternatively I use what's known as 'Powerline networking'. This is a system whereby the mains wireing in your house is used instead of ethernet.
There are several brands available and you can buy units that have a wireless transamitter on one mains plug so that you can be flexible with your wireless layout.
I have found this to be much more reliable than trying to use 'range-boosters'.

I have recently joined sky and there netgear wireless box they provided is rubbish so want to use my netgear DG834PN so have logged onto my router and inserted the username and password of my sky router...


Hi,

Please note that it is not possible to configure a different router, not provided, by SKY on their network. Sky use MAC authentication on their network and hence it is virtually impossible, unless you spoof the MAC address, to configure a different router on their network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

xbox configures the connection automatically as long as it is able to detect an internet connection(either wired or wireless). For wirless connections though, make sure xbox is using the correct security key or wep key for the wireless connection.

I am going to speculate here... If the IP is set to what you are mentioning, it is possible to be conflicting with the DHCP range that is issued from the router.

In your router if the option to set the generated auto IP range is available, set the range to not include the auto IP to be within the range of the camera's IP. Or put the the camera IP to a value that is out of range of the auto IP from the router.

In your browser, typing the IP address of the camera should bring it up.

Fast Page Loads Slow Downloads


it really depends on how far you are from your Router. The farther you go, the weaker the signal gets resulting in slower speeds. Slower speeds will not affect web page load times (they are tiny parts of data) but will definately affect download speeds. You need to be as close to the router as possible or get perfect range. You can put the router at higher elevation in the room to get a better range to start with. Let me know if this works for you.

Linksys Range Expander...


Hi,

Initially, it is possible that the WRE54G has not been configured to talk with WiFi AP/Router downstairs and all that is needed is to configure/set it up.

Setup (to be done in the same room where your WiFi AP/Router is installed and preferably with your daughter's laptop which can already connect to your network when it is near):
1. Download the LinkSys WRE54G Setup Wizard from the LinkSys site;
2. Use a LAN cable connection to the WRE54G Ehternet port (located underneath a flip lid in front panel) to one of your daughter's laptop;
3. Power up the LinkSys Expander;
4. Press the Range Expander’s Auto Configuration button for about five seconds. Normally this should be sufficient for the Expander to auto-detect and auto-configure itself;
5. Power off;
6. Move the Expander to your intended place of installation;
7. Again using your daughter's laptop, expand/install the downloaded LinkSys Setup Wizard. Soon as the program is running, follow the on screen instructions. Please don't forget to Save before exiting.
8. Move your daughter's laptop to its intended location and try the system.

Should you still need a User's Guide, it is available here.

Another possibility that we cannot discount is that the WRE54G is also not reaching your router downstairs. Perhaps what can be done is installing it not a floor down from your daughter's but halfway between your daughter's floor and your office downstairs.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
