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?

Re: Signal strength very low. Belkin ADSL2 modem with...
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

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.
Strange, as these modems tend to have a pretty decent wireless signal strength. Try changing the channel your modem broadcasts on. If you surf to 192.168.1.1 you'll be able to visit the modem interface, where you can change this setting.
80% is a good signal strength....but if you want to increase the signal strength, then you need to move the wireless router to a very ventilated area, also the router should be placed atleast 5 feet away from other electronic devices like, modem, ups, microwave ovens,refrigerators etc....
also there should be a line of sight between the router and the wi-fi adapter...
but in order to connect to a wireless network 25% of signal strength is enough....
thank u for the clarification..if it says "low signal strength" then u will have to reduce the distance between the laptop and the wireless router..also please ensure there are no big objects,walls etc between the two..u can get better signal strength by doing these..also other nearby wireless networks and cordless phones can hamper with signal..hope it helps!regards!
The fact that it sometimes works and sometimes not, would indicate that maybe your wireless signal strength is poor. Try moving the router and/or antenna and recheck the signal strength.
If you would provide more details about the problem and your setup it may be helpful in diagnosing the problem.
