You can get a high gain antenna or better yet get a wireless range expander to repeat the signal of your router so it can reach the entire house.
hope that helps.......

Thompson TG782T boost wireless transmission around home


The device does not have removable antennae so it isn't as easy as getting a more powerful antennae and connecting it. You would have to get something called a range extender or signal booster. These can act as an access point/repeater or just a repeater between access points.
I would suggest the kind that act as an access point/repeater and configuring them to connect to your wireless. They will provide coverage in the same manner as your router in that a certain distance from the access point will have optimal signal strength.

Have cisco linkys E3000 and signal is poor from one room to another one. Is there any help to increase power etc. Rgds dodorp43do@yahoo.com


Hi, Some ways to improve signal are:
  1. Place the router in a central location
  2. Place the router on the same floor that it is mainly used
  3. Replace the antenna with a hi-gain version
  4. Replace the network card in your computer with a better model
  5. Change the channel of your router to use a less populated channel
  6. Reduce wireless interference by removing objects on the same band (e.g. most home wireless phone systems work on the same band as wireless routers)
  7. Update your firmware on your router
  8. Update the network driver on your computer
  9. Upgrade the router
  10. Make a parabolic reflector for your router:

I have the belkin router in my home and one of my laptops are not picking up the signal for the router


Hi,

Probably the Router signal strength is low.
You need to open the EWS page ( Router configuration page ) and increase the signal strength to 11 ( it must be Auto or 1,2,3, etc )

EWS Page ( Router page ) can be opened using the Router IP Address which may be 192.168.1.1 or if you know it. Open Internet Explorer and enter the ip address and hit enter ( without www or .com )

Under Wireless configuration or settings you will find the Channel Strength. You need to restart your Laptop to get connected again to the network after saving the settings are you will loose the internet connection.

Regards,
Shawn

How do i increase wi-fi signal strength


There are only a few ways to increase signal strength ..move closer to the source (the router) , get a bigger antenna or boost the signal...you can boost the signal with foil in the shape of a parabola around the router antenna or make one out of a vegatable strainer that will plug into the laptop(this one works best )especially for picking up your neighbors WIFI

My mobile is not getting network so what i want to


Hi,

You cannot do anything for this problem.This problem is because of the structures around your home.The walls around your home is blocking/interfering with the signal coming inside and the mobile is unable to pick up the signal.

Please try this code

*#3370# - Enhanced Full Rate Codec (EFR) activation. Increase signal strength, better signal reception. It also help if u want to use GPRS and the service is not responding or too slow. But phone battery will drain faster though.

*#3370* - (EFR) deactivation code

If it doesnt work then you cannot do anything else.

Thanx

How to boost wireless signal on ps3


If you are talking the wireless for the controllers they use bluetooth and the signal strength is dependent on how much interference there is around you. If you are speaking of the wifi capability for the network connection you cannot increase the strength of the signal from the PS3 it needs to be done with the wireless access point.

*#3370* - (EFR) deactivation. Phone will automatically restart. Increase battery life by 30% because phone receives less signal from network.

Poor wifi performance


Doesn't matter,those signals can't get up to your study cause of the basement. when outside it's fine. try putting the router at a higher end, like on a stool or try the highest point in the basement. Or try getting some high gain antennas that will boost the signal.

Poor signal strength


if your in a metal shed then the best way would be to mount a outdoor type access point to boost signal or just hardwire it

Not enought signal


Ok there are a few ways to increase ya signal strength... One can purchase an antenna that has a high "Gain" and connect in place of existing antenna.. One can place the Existing Antenna in "Optimal Positions".. ie: Up High with an Unbroken Line Of Sight between Antennas. One can sometimes increase the Output from your WiFi adapters.. you must check any documentation to see if this is possible. One can make a thing called a"Cantenna" here ---> www.turnpoint.net/wireless/cantennahowto.html There are "Other" Home made antennas that are cheap and easy to make, some simply made from cardboard and tin foil. The most important thing to remember is, Antenna Placement for best signal strength, with least amount of obstacles in between units, & up as high as practicable..
