Have you tried moving the computer upstairs to a different place to get the best signal ?
What is the signal strenth?
Have you tried moving the router to a different position?
If your signal strength is quite weak, you may need to get a more powerfull router, like this one http://bestofferbuy.com/2.4GHz-1000mW-High-Power-802.11b/g-WLAN/WiFi/Wireless-Broadband-Router-p-50909.html?currency=GBP&utm_source=gbase&utm_medium=cse&utm_campaign=gbase
they are about twice as expensive.

I keep losing my wireless connection inside my home. My modem is in the basement and I want to use my laptop upstairs. I use an N router and have cable internet. My house is also wired with Cat 5 wiring...


Well , the connection upstairs depends on the capabilities of the router that how much coverage it can give for the wireless clients associated.

Since , it is a N-router so try upgrading the drivers for it , the technical term will be firmware.Upgrade the firmware of the router to the latest one and you might have your issue resolved.

I have F5D7230-4 router. Modem downstairs connected to DSL. Computer upstairs needs a wireless card to work This is a ''G'' router, but it only picks up signal upstairs with a ''B'' card which I stole...


The Belkin F5D7230-4 router should offer "Wireless G" connections,
unless you have used its built-in web-interface to only allow "Wireless B" connections.

So, if your "upstairs" computer, with a "Wireless B" adapter, connects, it will connect only at the slower "Wireless B" speed.

If you want "Wireless G" speed, you will need to purchase a "Wireless G" adapter.

Cant connect to internet with main computer, one upstairs is fine


The upstairs computer is wired or wireless ?

If the upstairs computer is working then the router must be working properly.
Check the connection between the downstairs computer and the router.
If it is a wireless computer then check the wireless connection status on that computer.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

Slow connection


Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router.
Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location.
If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)

Cable modem


Go and buy a router. Plug your existing modem into the WAN port and your computers into the LAN port. You could even get a wireless router and connect your upstairs computer wireless. Be sure to lock down your SSID (Wireless Access Point Broadcast Name) so your neighbors or people driving by don't get on and do bad things on your network.
