Poor wireless signal strength on my laptop

My laptop is kept 100 feet from my wireless modem and it gets poor signal strength. A rep at your store sold me a Netgear Super-G Wireless Router, told me to plug it into the wireless modem and that it would solve my problem.

I have done that but there is no difference to my signal strength

What can I do?

The modem randomly drops the connection and restarts on it's own. Usually does this when there is a download or upload taking place while I am online or even when I am playing Xbox online. Why is this...


There can be any of a number of reasons for the modem randomly dropping your connection, but the vast majority of these are going to deal with a poor signal coming in over the coaxial cable line. Call your cable provider and let them know the modem is resetting. If they claim there are no problems, ask them for the signal strength and the "SNR". The signal strength should generally be within a ballpark of -10dbmv to 10dbmv, the closer to 0 the better. The SNR should not be any lower than around 32 or 33db.

Low signal strength, only -89db.


Telephone your Internet Service Provider -- they can "remotely" connect to your cable-modem, and verify the settings, and can boost the signal. After all, you're paying them $$$$ per month; this month, make them "earn" their money from your wallet.

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

The signal strength on my gigaset sx763 s705 c431 7 is too week to go through cinternal concrete walls. is there a solution


I have a similar problem. Placing the wireless router in the loft/attic is a logical solution with the antennas going horizontally so the omni-directional signal reaches down into the rooms of the house. To get to downstairs you may need a wireless repeater on the first floor to repeat the loft signal.

My 2 wire is giving a weak signal upstairs is it possible to boost the signal so the laptop can operate properly?


You can by accessing the 2wire's setup page and playing with the wireless channels. But then again this also depends on the flooring material you have for the 2nd floor, 2 feet thick concrete floors block wireless signals.

Signal strength very low. Belkin ADSL2 modem with wireless g router F 507632-4


signal is bouncing off doors and walls to get to your comp
move comp closer to modem if it increases and your signal strength increases then you know youll have to be close to modem

other problem someone taped your signal and it working off of it call your provider to come out test the wireless signal strength and or password your wireless router settings so some one cant interfere with signal

i dont like wireless myself in the home i go straight cable with ether net cord this always has strenght and cannot be tapped

I think 2wire routers are good in providing signal strength. Contact the 2wire vendor regarding your requirements.

take care
