Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

Wifi (laptop) I am using (attempting) wifi in my room. If I am at the coffee shop I get a great signal. But from my room it is very slow, and the signal is weak. Due to so many people on the net x distance. I don't know if I should get an omni-directional antenna, or a universal range extender? Could use some help, please!

Built in wifi cards are very limited in range, get an external pc card
then you can get an antenna to connect to that if needed.
I use both and find the external card is best in reception.
you can connect an antenna to the internal card but you will have to leave the access panel open or make a hole in it.

Wifi network not working in some rooms


Change the position of the WiFi router, because there are things like duct work, metal studs and electrical wiring concealed in the walls that can and will have an effect on WiFi signal strength.

What causing that the Wi-Fi connecting at Windows8 faled every few minutes.???


Hi
The normal cause for WiFi failing regularly, dropping out, is due to distance from the WiFi signal source. This distance is not just feet and inches but also dependant upon the nature of objects between the signal source and the receiver. I recently found a case where the signal source had been put behind a large modern TV, and the WiFi signal in the next room was so slow and intermittent that the internet was unusable. Moving the router in front of the TV (in a position where it did not obstruct the picture!!!) cured the problem and they now have fast WiFi internet.

D-link DWA130 usb wirerless adapter in crease the signal


USB wifi adapter defaults to its best setting so there is nothing you can do to make it pick up signals better.

You might be able to increase your routers broadcast range if the router belongs to you.

If you are using a laptop in a public place (like an coffee shop or an airport or something) the best thing you can do is move around and get closer to the router, they have decent range so you shouldn't have to move very far.

The instruction manual should have tips on boosting range.

MY LAPTOP DOES NOT CATCH ANY WIFI SIGNALS


methinks that you need to check these two items first

a. look for a physical switch along the sides of laptop(could be sure if the model number were here) and turn it on

b. open start/control panel and look for wireless icon click on that and ensure it's active

if that does not work then make sure you have one installed

start/control panel/system icon

opens panel go to device manager(should be upper left first option on list)

look for network adapters

see if wireless is listed

if it has a yellow ? mark then you need to right click to uninstall

go to top of that panel and scan for hardware changes

may need to restart computer after this segment is complete

Just purchased a new laptop from Best Buy!!!


There are two ways of getting on line outside your home. 1- you can use the built in wireless card at any location that has free wifi, ie... Macdonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, shopping malls, coffee shops, hotel/motel, etc... all of these offer free wifi. The upside is that it's free, the downside is you have to find a place with free wifi. 2- you can go through your cellular provider, ie... AT&T, Cingular, Sprint, US Cellular, whoever you have and get an airtime wireless card. The cards are around $150, then you will have a monthly charge of around $60. This will allow you to connect anywhere, anytime, as long as you have a signal.

M675 Notebook Wireless Problem


yeppers..those are simply receivers, and sometimes, after a period of time, and vibration, and shock, they just lose some of their ability to tune into a signal. I've seen it in net cafes and inside wireless nodes too.

got backup for your Gateway?
