Nothing simple unfortuantely. With wireless technology, your only options are to either (a) imcrease the power of the transmitter (which, since you already tried using fresh batteries - is out), (b) improve the antennae of the receiver (which, I doubt you have access to in the product - so that's out). There are technologies available to put an RF-repeater to extend the range of a device, but by that stage you're putting in so much time and effort that I don't know if its worth the trouble.

Since you know the range is an issue, I would measure it, compare it to the spec of the system, and look to another manufacturer that has more history with RF. I recommend these:

Remote control has very short range


1. make sure battery is inserted correctly.
2. Do you have 2 remotes? Are they both exhibiting short range? Maybe bad remote if 1 is OK and the other is not.
3. Try this to extend range: hold remote under your chin and touching your chin while pressing the button. Your head acts as an antenna to extend the range.

I use it and it doesn't move were I want and I changed the batteries and reconnetcted it but it dousn't work.


I think you are speaking about a wireless mouse. If so, try to get the mouse and the wireless receiver in the PC as close as possible. They have a really short range and if they get more than 3 or 4 feet away will cause these kinds of issues.
The other possibility is some other device like a hands free phone in the house interfering with the signal. Try a wired mouse to see how that goes then you'll have a btter idea what the main cause is.

My Craftsman remote won't close my garage door


If the remote opens and closes while inside the garage but not outside , there are a few things it could be. Assuming it was working fine before..
1. weak battery in remote.
2. remote itself could be bad. (unless you have more than 1 remote acting the same)
3. Logic board in opener is going bad causing limited range.Is the wire that hangs down from the opener straightened out? That is your remote antenna.Some people have coiled or even cut it off..reducing range.
4. Less likely but this can happen- interference from another electronic device, wireless routers, cell phone, new appliances etc.. can reduce remote range. Any new electronics recently purchased?

My garage door opener remote range limitted


Hi,
Yes the receiver can go bad over time and lose range. Most likely the receiver cost plus the labor will cost as much or more than a new unit...depending on who does the repair. FYI another cause of reduced remote range can be signal interference from other sources which would be a little harder to track down unfortunately. Wireless routers, new appliances anything with electronics are a possible source of trouble.If you or a neighbor bought any new gadgets there's a small possibility of thatbeing the issue. But based on the age of the unit that's my first guess.

I have a psp 3000 and it will not get a connection for the internet anywhere can u help?


please ensure that you have the wifi button in the enabled position. Your PSP will detect any wireless wireless network within its range as long as the wireless
adapter is switched on. The switch for this is on the left end of the PSP, near the analogue
thumbstick. If the switch is in the down position, the wireless network adapter is off; push the
switch into the up position and it'll turn it on. If you're not going to be using wireless
networking it's a good idea to keep it turned off as it'll make your batteries last longer.
