Some wire less routers allow for a replacement or upgraded antenna (I know most Linksys routers do) which you can get at an electronics store.

Check on Netgear.com or look in the manual to see if your router is capable of that.

I have a SuperScan 35 inch I have hook a RCA indoor antenna to it and run channel search but nothing comes in help me please


The problem could be with the antenna you got versus the location you live. Indoor antennas are very range limited. Non-amplified models range about 25 miles, while amplified models make about 50-60 miles. Also, you must consider where you live. If you live in an area of heavy building concentration, signal may be limited. Home construction matters as well. Frame houses pass signal better than brick or concrete block homes. Upstairs locations fare far better than basement family rooms.

Just purchased new xbox. Xbox live was working fine when hardwired, but computer and xbox will not work thru wireless. It finds the router, but when I try to open the internet or connect to xbox live it...


I had a similar problem a while back with a netgear gateway. All four ethernet ports on the back worked but it wouldn't work with wifi. I had taken it apart and found that the antenna solder point had came loose. If the antenna isn't hooked up it won't send out a signal. Mine broke because it fell off of the back of my tv

I have a RC28T1-27 Remote that suddenly no longer works. Put in new batteries and it seems like there is no connection. Will not work unless you keep pressing buttons repeatively.


The problem is that the broadcasting antenna at the top of the remote is very a very thin wire wrapped around a heavy cylindrical magnet and its solder points are extremely weak. You most likely dropped it and it came loose. I re-soldered mine and it worked perfectly.... until it broke again. The leads are very small and hard to fix.
Chalk it up to poor design.
It is hard to take apart.... I got mine apart by wedging a screwdriver in and twisting until it popped apart. (nothing broke) I started at a bottom corner and worked my way up the side until it came loose. It is a fairly easy fix if you know how to solder.

Hi, I have a digital tv plugged into an extension cable in an upstairs (Toshiba) bedroom; it works perfectly - receiving all channels. I have a digital tv downstairs (Samsung) where it seems the wall...


Hi Fiona
Somewhere along the line from the aerial there must be a signal splitter that feeds the upstair and downstair terminals.
Try to find that splitter and switch the output to see if the problem goes from up to downstair.
If it does switch then you know the problem is with the splitter block, and if it stays the same then the problem is with the cable and/or the connectors that run downstairs.
Also the reason you get a pixellated(snowy) picture is because of signal loss during the length of the cable you ran downstair.
If running a cable downstair becomes the best option to fix your problem , then you could buy a cheap 10db signal booster/r.f amplifier to correct the signal loss and a cable splitter to feed both tv`s
That booster would be installed upstair in your case(near the source of the signal to be amplified).
I could send you a small diagram if need be. Hope this will help and Merry Chrismas

We have a tv upstairs and one down stairs, they


Since the antenna is on the roof the signal has further to travel to get to the downstairs antenna and as a result the signal is weaker. Install a device on the antenna line before the first TV called a signal booster. This unit plugs into the wall and gets connected to the antenna wire too. It will improve the signal for both televisions.

How do I boost a digital TV signal?


No don't buy an LCD TV! I mean, unless you want to, they are nice :-) But you'll still have the same antenna issue. I looked up your antenna, if it's actually working just fading in and out, try an in line amplifier first (radioshack 1501170), and if that doesn't fix your issue, time to upgrade your antenna. It does get a little pricier, but do keep in mind the whole set up is good for 10-20 years. Before going back to RadioShack, go to this website:
www.antennaweb.org

If you live closer than 15 miles, rabbit ears
If you live closer than 20 miles, omnidirectional
If you live closer than 50 miles, midrange outdoor (oldschool arial w/ rotator)
Further than 80 miles, you'll need a long range with rotator, perhaps even an amplifier to go with it. Print off what your results were on antenna web and bring it to a RadioShack or a local antenna store and they should be able to point you to the right antenna for your particular location.

If you really wanna use the so called wireless "N" technology you need to have a wireless N card for your pc so the wireless N technology will be working on your network since you're saying that you already have a wireless N router, because you will just only use a longer antenna your wireless pc will still be running on wireless G technology.

Garmin Quest GPS problem


Hello,

I got the exact same problem and I solved it. The problem was a bad contact between the flipping antenna and the unit.
On the back of the unit, removed the two screws on the right side, beside the flipping antenna.
Take care there is a spring that can fly away.
Remove the part that was holded by the screws.
Removed the flipping antenna (pull on right slowly).
On the antenna connector on the unit, there is a ring. That ring was loose.
Tight it.
Put every thing back.

It solve the problem on my Quest 2.

GPS not able to lock (SNR often 0, sometime in thee 5-10 range)


Me again...I took the unit apart and found out that there is a coax cable between the back board and the middle board. The cable has plug in connectors (v. small size) and the female connectors are soldered SMT on the boards. They are coming out quite easy..so one of them was literally ripped off the board. I soldered it with quite a fine iron,did a reset and I am back in business.....as a footnote my readings in AZ /El were all zeros!!!!
