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.......

Wifi network not working in some rooms


Change the position of the WiFi router, because there are things like duct work, metal studs and electrical wiring concealed in the walls that can and will have an effect on WiFi 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:

Can I boost signal strength?


You will need to get hold of a Belkin Wireless G Universal Range Extender relays the signals of your wireless network and extends its range model number F5D7132 from PC world or another online dealer.

You will still need the wireless router as the central connection point, using the booster your network now reaches further I have one at the top of the stairs with the Router downstairs to I can browser wirelessly in the loft conversion of my old house

Increasing signal strength


1. You can try to play around with the channel, you can use channel 1,6 or 11.
2. If the location is a dead spot you may try installing a repeater to boost the signal.

Signal strength keeps varying


if you arent in a clear line of sight, many things can affect the signal strength of your network including the thickness of the walls, the composition of them and anything else that may be in the way. if you use a 2.4 ghz router and you have a 2.4ghz cordless house phone, they can interfere and cause issues. A microwave oven that is located between the router and a device can cause interference as well.

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.

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
