You could purchase and install a 802.11n wireless network adapter. This has a better range than 802.11g. However, if the motel is only using 802.11g wireless router it may not really make much difference.

Although 802.11n routers have come down in price so, if you wanted to either convince the operators of the motel to make an investment in such a device or if you want to purchase it yourself, this will make a difference.

My recommendation is the the Draytek Vigor 2110N or the Belkin N+ router and you will need a Netgear Wireless-N 300 USB Adapter.

You cant boost the incoming signal per se but you may be able to use an external device (antenna) that will recieve it better than your internal WIFI.

Irulu 7" tablet keeps disconnecting from internet. It's connect for a minute or so and then just drops. Just received replacements for 2 in the mail yesterday. No connection problems with old ones.


How many 'bars' are showing on wi-fi signal strength indicator (presuming you are using wi-fi for internet access)? If the signal strength is low, you could be losing connections that way, or there might be interference on the wi-fi channel that the tablet is using. Try changing channels in your wi-fi setup and see if there is an improvement in the behavior.

Switching wireless on


Powerup the laptop and wait for the main screen to appear.

Turnon the laptop's Wi-Fi switch, typically located on the left or right edge ofthe laptop near the front of the computer. Look for a small, sliding switch.

Viewthe wireless networks in range of your laptop by double clicking on the Wi-Fiicon in the lower right-hand corner of your laptop screen. The icon resembles acomputer monitor with three curved lines, like radio waves, emanating from theside.

Checkthe list of available wireless networks and select the network with thestrongest signal. The signal strength is represented by several bars next tothe name of each network. The more bars you see, the stronger the signal.Choose a network that you can access---either your own Internet connection athome or the office, or the Wi-Fi wireless network connection available for freein some restaurants, coffee shops, motels and other businesses that offer Wi-Fito their customers.

Selecta wireless network and click the "Connect" button.

Enterthe code for accessing the network if prompted to do so. For example, if youare staying at a motel that offers Wi-Fi access to guests, the code will besupplied to you at check-in, or you can call the front desk to obtain it. Mostsystems require you to enter the code twice.

Waitfor the window to display a message that the Wi-Fi is connected.

Openyour Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Problems connecting remote net connection.


It sounds as if your signal strength is too low for the laptop to make a solid connection with the router. The further away you get from the router, the lower the signal gets. Any problems connecting to other access points? Places with free wi-fi like some fast food restaurants, books stores, etc? You may need to get a new router with a stronger signal strength.

How do i connect to mcdonolds free wifi? what do i need?


To access the Wi-Fi services in a restaurant, you need a Wi-Fi enabled device, such as a laptop or PDA. If you are unsure whether your laptop or PDA is Wi-Fi enabled, click here to determine what hardware is required.

Our local service providers provide high-quality Wi-Fi service through several convenient connection options: on-line credit card payment, subscriptions, prepaid cards, or (sometimes) promotional coupons. If you have questions or need technical help, the Wi-Fi provider's customer support number should be handy in the restaurant.

Please note that currently there are no roaming capabilities between different countries, neither for customers nor McDonald's employees. You will have to connect separately with the respective Wi-Fi service provider.

Enjoy surfing and working in your local McDonald's!

Wifi not function


My Internet service provider walked me through connecting correctly. I had chosen the WEP security options and should have chosen the WPA-PSK option. Call your service provider and get them to help verify your security access codes.
