I bought a blueray player with wifi for my tv in the basment. My d-link router is upstairs in the family room. Would it be too far for a proper connection?

Most routers have about 200m range. However, the actual range in real-time environment is much less. I think that your network would work fine. Also, based on my on-site experience, I suggest that you may relocate the router to another location depending upon your network environment. It has always helped me a great deal. Placing the router avoiding obstacles such as concrete pillars, walls, steel cabinets etc in the signal path have remarkable effect on range and overall performance of the network.

HOPE IT HELPS...Let me know if you need any further clarification/ assistance.

I have a d-link 2750u wifi router with dual atntena..but connect in my badroom its near by wifi router i fonna show you in video with distan


Hi
Thanks for the video. I appears that you have concrete floors in your home. A couple of things that drasticly reduce wifi distance or signal strength is electrical fields caused by wiring in the walls and concrete walls or floors. Concrete is very dense and also has a lot of metal rebar in it for structural strength. This combination is very tough to penetrate with radio signals. The best thing you could do is either mount the router higher in the first room you showed so that it is at a level about even with the floor of the second level or add a repeater somewhere on the second floor. Mounting the router higher allows the radio waves to bounce around both levels without having to go through the concrete and rebar between them.

I have Sony Bravia KDL-46HX800 3D TV. My Ethernet connection stopped working. I can't get IP, my Sony blueray player doesn't have such problem (it is connected to the same net. switch). TV say


use a straight thru to connect directly to the router. Cross overs are typically used when connecting PC's directly together or daisy chaning routers or switches. Try a different port on the switch? Also from a pc, go to the DOS prompt and try and ping your TV. If your TV IP settings are all correct, and your network equipment is working, your should get a response from pinging your TV. If you don't, I would suspect a problem with your TV Enet port.

Cant keep ipad2 connectd to netgear wnr1000 vs


Sounds like the Ipad is getting out of "readable" range of the WiFi signal. You might log into the router and change the channel to channel 1. If that does not work, try another channel. If no channels work, you will probably need a Wifi extender to get the signal upstairs and readable for the Ipad.

Wifi blueray player won't connect to the internet, just bought the netgear600 and am having problems


Most of the wifi blueray players will really say "wifi ready" meaning you have to buy an adapter for the wifi part to work at all. What blueray player is it?

I BOUGHT A BLUERAY PLAYER NOW SAYS NO CONNECTION BOUGHT A BELKIN ROUTER SO WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO GET THE ROUTER TO CONNECT TO THE BLUERAY PLAYER


Well first you have to connect the router to your modem for the internet and follow the steps in instructions to set up router. Make you are able to connect to internet on your pc. Then you will have to make sure that your blue ray has wifi built in or is wifi ready with the wifi adapter. if not you can run a network cable from the router to the blueray. You will then search fro a network connection on your bluray and connect it. Hope this helps, best of luck to you :)
