Signal strength very low. Belkin ADSL2 modem with wireless g router F 507632-4

My system has been set up by a professional yet I always get signal strength very low and speed about 1 mbps it frequently loses signal.
I thought about getting a high gain antenna but the current belkin one won't unscrew! I live in a semi house and the route to the computer is fairly direct with just a wall with an open door in to overcome. Any ideas?

Signal is bouncing off doors and walls to get to your comp
move comp closer to modem if it increases and your signal strength increases then you know youll have to be close to modem

other problem someone taped your signal and it working off of it call your provider to come out test the wireless signal strength and or password your wireless router settings so some one cant interfere with signal

i dont like wireless myself in the home i go straight cable with ether net cord this always has strenght and cannot be tapped

Zoom 1079 modem works fine on its own, but internet drops out intermittently when I add my Netgear N-150 wireless router for use with Netflix... Rene.


If you're connecting the device you're watching netflix with wirelessly, check the strength of the signal your device is getting from the router, netflix needs a strong connection and the download speed you'll need for it is 1.5mbps or greater. If both your signal and download speed are fine try unplugging your Netgear and your Zoom from the power for about 5 min. to refresh your connection

Low signal strength, only -89db.


Telephone your Internet Service Provider -- they can "remotely" connect to your cable-modem, and verify the settings, and can boost the signal. After all, you're paying them $$$$ per month; this month, make them "earn" their money from your wallet.

I have the belkin router in my home and one of my laptops are not picking up the signal for the router


Hi,

Probably the Router signal strength is low.
You need to open the EWS page ( Router configuration page ) and increase the signal strength to 11 ( it must be Auto or 1,2,3, etc )

EWS Page ( Router page ) can be opened using the Router IP Address which may be 192.168.1.1 or if you know it. Open Internet Explorer and enter the ip address and hit enter ( without www or .com )

Under Wireless configuration or settings you will find the Channel Strength. You need to restart your Laptop to get connected again to the network after saving the settings are you will loose the internet connection.

Regards,
Shawn

I have a 4100. Can it be used wireless?


This modem that you have don;t have a wireless capability, but if you like to have a wireless network using this modem you need to get a wireless router that will be connected to the modem and the wireless router will be the one that is going to be transmitting the wireless signal for your wireless computers.

You can go and get a wireless broadband router from this manufacturer Linksys, Netgear , Belkin and Dlink , they make a good wireless router that can be use with your modem.

The signal strength on my gigaset sx763 s705 c431 7 is too week to go through cinternal concrete walls. is there a solution


I have a similar problem. Placing the wireless router in the loft/attic is a logical solution with the antennas going horizontally so the omni-directional signal reaches down into the rooms of the house. To get to downstairs you may need a wireless repeater on the first floor to repeat the loft signal.

My internet goes down randomly. I don't know if it my modem or my provider. Any suggestions? I am using an Efficient Networks Speedstream 5100 modem and an D-Link WBR 1310 wireless router.


Are you using wired ports on the router or wireless?
If you are using wireless, do you have a cordless phone nearby and does the use of it coincide with the loss of internet? Have you tried switching to a wired connection for a short while to see if you are having the same problem? Could be intereference issues with your wireless signal. When you look at the available wireless networks, are there more than one? Could be that your PC/laptop is trying to connect to someone else's wireless if their signal strength is stronger.
If you are using a wired connection on the wireless router and still losing connectivity, try a network connection monitoring tool such as WhatsUpGold (free to try). Have it set up to monitor your PC's gateway address (which should be your wireless router) and some other internet site (Google, Yahoo, etc). If your router connection never drops, but the internet site does, good chance that it's your provider.
Make sure you have the latest drivers for your network device (wired or wireless) and the latest version of firmware for your D-Link. Buggy drivers and firmware can definitely cause flakiness.

Wireless router


I think 2wire routers are good in providing signal strength. Contact the 2wire vendor regarding your requirements.
