First you need to check what is the standard of your wireless adapter that is installed on your computer(to check this well you need to grab the manual or check the specification of the computer or adapter) if it's wireless b 802.11b the maximum speed that you'll be getting is 11Mbps regardless if your router supports N standard 802.11n which can get you through a maximum of 230 to 280Mbps tops.

Second, check the wireless settings of your router make sure that the wireless mode is set to auto or mixed.

How to increase zhone 1518 internet speed


Many things/variables determine Internet Speed, some you can control, some not so much. Contact your ISP and have them verify the signal, have a ISP tech come out and analyze the signal. The issue may be outside equipment or the Internet site itself. No one thing will increase speed. Upgrade to a New N or AC Wireless Access point, but remember you must update ALL computers to N or AC to benefit fro the Wireless device upgrade. Check ALL cables and connections, reseat connections. Your Device is a 802.11 G, what are you connecting? Are the Computers G as well? You can connect via a Ethernet cable, that's the fastest/easiest/cheapest way to increase speed.

Poor connectivity


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Me tp-link give weak internet and some times dissconected but when i uesed by wire give excellant internet speed


Most probable cause is the materials used in the construction on the home/office or where ever you have the router. Your options would be to move the router to a more central location or you could invest in some repeaters/wireless extender to extend the range of the signal. IF you use wireless extenders please note you will need to make sure they all have the same SSID (name seen for your network) and make each device is on either channels 1,6 or 11. So your first device would be say 1 (Doesn't matter which you pick) the next device would be on 6 and then next on 11. If you had another device, hypothetically you would want it on 1. These three channels do not overlap enough to interfere with each other.

How can I increase my WIFI range. My internet signal is very weak when I am in my bedroom. Can I increase my range by possibly buying a signal extender.


Try moving the wireless router around and or higher.
If the wireless router is in a different room and the room has concrete walls of foils insulation in the walls, this will weaken the wireless signal. AND/OR
You can connect add a antenna to your computer. Have a look at this device. Normal 0 USB High Gain Antennas www.pricewatch.com/gallery/networking/high_gain_antenna

Belkin Router Signal Weak


Wireless configurations are tempermental over larger distances. Some routers do have the ability to increase the signal strength to over come this, but a good location is key.

The more obsticals in the way the slower the connection will become. Closed doors, being buried under books, underneath desks, can all cause the signal to come through a slower speeds to compensate.

Make sure your router is in an elevated location to help with a less blocked signal.

Are you using a Wireless-N adapter on your computer? If not, you might need an extender because Wireless-G does not have the same range as -N.

With the model number of your Belkin router I might be able to assist more.

My PC cannot see the wireless signal.


The reason why your PC can't see the wireless signal is because it is too far from the router. Or your wireless card is too weak to detect the signal from the router, its either the antenna it bad or loose, you may need to double check that. You may consider changing the channel on the wireless router to channel 11. Try to power cycle the router as well.
