The only other way to boost the signal is to disable the one built in and use a usb type adapter. They act more like antennas that way. If you have a pcmcia card slot on the side of your notebook there are come wireless network adapters out there that have an antenna on them as well.

Depending on what router your using, most routers can have their antennas upgrades as well.

The only way to boost the signal is to upgrade the internal wireless card to a card with more range. Research the various Broadcom and Intel wireless cards and find one that meets the range you need. Most of the cards are interchangeable, so even though it may not have been offered for your machine, it will work, with the proper drivers.

I think you can try:
  1. Homemade Pringles antenna - Eat a packet of Pringles (ready salted would be my choice) then follow this tutorial to convert it into a functioning directional antenna. Point it where you need a signal boost.
  2. Airport Express & kitchen sieve - Take an Airport Express and set it into a common metallic kitchen sieve to boost it's signal further.
  3. Try a parabolic dish - Hawking make a 802.11 B/G parabolic dish that basically pulls in a WiFi signal, performs some magic and boosts your range by up to 300%! It only costs $80 and it has a cool retro style.
  4. Cantenna - This is basically a pro version of the Pringles tin hack. For $50 you can buy a Cantenna that plugs into your router and extends your WiFi signal. It also looks cool.
Also see this:
The Wi-Fire uses a powerful directional antenna, highly sensitive receiver and proprietary software to find and enhance normal WiFi signals. With it, you can connect wirelessly to the Internet-even at low signal strengths-faster, more reliably and with a more consistently strong connection-than you are able to with an internal wireless adapter.
The Wi-Fire draws very little power from your laptop battery. It comes complete with everything you need to connect wirelessly to the Internet. Just install the Wi-Fire Connection Manager, plug the Wi-Fire into an available USB port and you're ready to start. It can rest on any flat surface, laptop display or flat screen monitor.

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

You can't connect the any antenna you bought to your PC. Normally, any Wireless Boardband router/modem whether it is cable or USB connection, the antenna is usually built-in or with an external appendage sticking out from the Router/modem. You have to check with your ISP whether they have any alternative to boost the signal to your wireless modem.

If they coverage to your area is no good, look for another ISP which have much excellent band coverage.

Hope it herlps.

Low wireless signal wbr 2310 on signal strength


Hi Thanks for your question.
My advice would be to consider moving your router to different place. Put it a bit higher. There's also a lot of products like bigger antennas and wireless range expanders that you could consider buying. Here's link to some of the products so you can have a look what I mean---> click hear You could also try low cost home ways to boost your signal like- Attach a bit of aluminum foil to the router antenna. Position the foil so that the signal bounces off the foil in the direction of your computer. I hope this was helpful. Good Luck

I have wifi internet connection but some time signal is very low


Install a wireless repeater, such as this:

http://www.hawkingtech.com/products/productlist.php?CatID=32&FamID=105&ProdID=241

OR move your wireless access point closer to the computer, or use an additional access point, or purchase a Luxul amplified antenna.

You could also get an external wi-fi card with a big antenna.

Hope this helps,

Cheers

Unfortunately the range on a G router is usually reliable to about 200 ft or so, depending on obstructions. There is no way to boost the 802.11g signal. You'd be looking at upgrading your router and card to 802.11n, which would give you increased range. .

Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610


If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123

The more you spend the more purchase you will get. Go for one with a high dBi. Also be aware that you may want an omni-directional one if you want the signal to be boosted in all areas
