Which router modem is best ?


Hello,

If you get a wireless-N router, and you have a wireless-N adapter on your computer, then it should work...depending on the physical environment and building type. If the building has steel-beam construction, or log walls for example, then this will inhibit the wireless signal drastically. Also, having a clear line of sight between the router and intended coverage area will help. Trees and tall brush can also kill the signal. Try to place the router closest to the area you want to cover, so the signal doesn't have to pass through several walls. Try placing it on a window ledge facing the area to be covered. If all else fails, there are high-powered N routers available, signal amplifiers and larger antennas for the router, and also consider mounting an antenna outside. Start with an N router and an N adapter for the computer first though as this is the least expensive solution, and may do the trick.

Hope this helps!

Theoretical covrage is 600 feet ... 300 on each side of the antenna ... provided there are no walls, no trees, no cars etc. between you and the antenna.

not without a repeater or maybe outside antenna. then the signal would probally be too low. you are working too far for wirless and thru building walls.

Unfortunately the range on a G router is usually reliable to about 200 ft or so, depending on obstructions. There is no way to boost the 802.11g signal. You'd be looking at upgrading your router and card to 802.11n, which would give you increased range. .

Wirless signal problem


Make sure there is no interference, such as microwaves or cell phones that operate at 2.4ghz. Do you have many thick inside walls between your router and your computer? You could try a signal boosting antenna to attach to your router.

I use Netgear dg834g and linksys wireless-G routers (blue and black) or modem/routers as these give the best signals ove long distances.

Also the edimax usb dongle has incredible connections for me over long distance

I have a 2wire Gateway modem/router. I would like to extend the range by 75 feet to reach an outbuilding i use for an office. What can I do?


A couple of ideas come to mind, but basically 75 extra feet could be a problem. It's unlikely that you will be able to extend the range of your present router, but that's the first place to look. The antenna may have a mini-connector on it that unscrews. You can add a 5 or 9 dB antenna to the base unit and push the signal farther.

The problem you face is you might be able to see the signal, but you still can't talk back to it. There are instructions floating around the internet to convert a wireless router to a wireless bridge. A bigger antenna at the Gateway and a router wired as a bridge would get you all the signal as a point-to-point system.

Of course, an industry standard wireless access point, will have a bridge mode. Again, it might be enough to just get one of those and it will be able to communicate with your existing equipment without adding the high gain antenna.

A typical WAP with antenna is in the neighborhood of $90.

Weak connection


HI,
As you have changed the router still the connection speed is slow, in this case it's better to contact your ISP get the line tested or a proper signal strength.
Also conduct a speedtest by going to the website internetfrog.com....indications are towards a line fault.

Where should I place my router?


This describes moving equipment, positioning antennas, and avoiding obstacles. When optimizing your existing equipment, consider: * Placing antennas in a good location, at a good angle. * Avoiding physical things that block signals. * Reducing the interference from other things that transmit radio waves. Before starting adjustment, make sure that antennas and cables are securely fastened! If your network has more than a couple wireless devices, before you move things, decide which wireless devices are transmitting the heaviest load. These links are important to optimize. NETGEAR products have automatic data rate fallback, which allows increased distances without losing connectivity. It also means that devices that are further away are inherently slower. Therefore the most critical links in your network are those where the traffic is high, and the distances are great. Optimize those, first. The ones that are least important are links that have little, occasional traffic, and which have a strong signal strength. Picking Good Locations for Antennas * Antennas should be in line-of-sight of one another, where possible. Put your face next to one antenna, to find whether the other is visible. * Place high, and clear of obstructions as practical. * Keep antennas 2 feet from metal fixtures such as sprinklers, pipes, metal ceiling, reinforced concrete, metal partitions. (However, antennas on roofs do not necessarily give the best results. ) * Keep away from large amounts of water such as fish tanks and water coolers. * Antennas transmit weakly at the base, where they connect. So don't expect good reception from the bottom of a router or access point. * For multi-story buildings, placing antennas at 45 degrees (diagonally) or 0 degrees (straight out parallel to the floor) may be most effective. Reducing Interference Avoid windows unless communicating between buildings. (Windows let in interference from the outside world.) Place antennas away from various electromagnetic noise sources, especially those in the 2400 ? 2500 MHz frequency band. Common noise-creating sources are: * Computers and fax machines (place wireless equipment no closer than 1 foot) * Copying machines, elevators and cell phones (no closer than 6 feet) * Microwave ovens (no closer than 10 feet)
