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.

Cant keep ipad2 connectd to netgear wnr1000 vs


Sounds like the Ipad is getting out of "readable" range of the WiFi signal. You might log into the router and change the channel to channel 1. If that does not work, try another channel. If no channels work, you will probably need a Wifi extender to get the signal upstairs and readable for the Ipad.

No increase in range


Hey kenat. To increase the range of your wireless signal to increase signal strength, try pointing the antennae as approximate as possible to your receiver. If you have already tried that, then use the old Aluminum foil trick. Get a small square of aluminum foil and wrap it around your antennae. Make sure the whole antennae is wrapped with the foil and it's usually best to keep some more hanging off. Because Aluminum is conductive, this will increase the strength of your wireless signal, and at the same time your range.
If all else fails you could always purchase a multi-antennae router which usually has 3 or more antennae.

Have fun :)

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 lose the signal from my 2300 if I move past 30 feet away from it. What can I do to increase the signal distance?


Things that will affect the range on a Wireless router signal are signal strength, and a big factor to this is the antenna you use. The small antenna that comes with the router normally offers around "Up to 100m" indoors and "Up to 450m" outdoors (open range) range, router to computer, and replacing this antenna with a higher gain directional antenna pointed towards your laptop would normally be a way to improve this signal. Router login involves using web browser and going to http://192.168.2.1 and login is admin as well as the password of admin ... unless you have changed it! At any rate, if all antennas are correctly attached the router to computer distance would not be a problem. Check antenna connection, replace if all secure and still have low signal strength. Please let me know the outcome of the repair efforts? Thank you.

Intermittent/non-existant connection with LinkSys WRT54G router


I would get a Range Expander... it sounds like you are having problems recieving a constant signal. When you do get the range expander plug the Range Expander halfway between you upstairs computers and your downstairs where your router is at. I hope this helps!!

Sincerely,

No connectivity to 2nd desktop or laptop - although worked before


Hello....sudden loss of wireless on two computers, in the same home, may indicate that a powerful source of wireless interference has just arrived (since your wireless router light is still on).

1) Does the signal improve if you move the router, or move the laptop closer to the router?
2) Have you had any success with changing the channel on your router? (Login to router > select Wireless Settings > Channel)

If you have not moved furniture yourself, or installed a device which could interfere with the signal (eg a DECT phone), it's possible a neighbour's new router may be the culprit.

Please come back to Fixya if this does not help.

Broken Antenna wire


Oh, I get it now. That extra Sony one should work fine. Does this mean you got it working or are you still looking for a replacement? You can most likely find these on ebay by themselves or as part of a laptop wireless assembly.

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.
