Wi-Fi networks have limited range. A typical router using 802.11b.or 802.11g with a stock antenna might have a range of 32 m (120 ft) indoors and 95 m (300 ft) outdoors.

other factors such as cordless telephone, cell phones, flouresent lights, and microwave ovens can interfere with a wi-fi signal.

Hello,

Well, I have no idea which router you are using, but most wireless routers will send a signal 300-400 feet. Walls, trees and other obstructions may decrease this range. There are amplifiers you can buy to send the signal further, but environmental conditions may prevent this from being an option.

Please let me know if you need any more info, as I am well versed in wireless.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Joe

Note 2 wifi weak wifi signls. it works only if i go near to router distance between 3 meter


Bad router or it may be the wifi card in your device? I have a router that the wife's laptop cannot connect to very welll from 18 metres away. The guy down the road can logon to my network from 40 meters distance.
Maybe it is not the router.
Try replacing it with a newer model, the lifespan of a router is probably about 2-3 years before they start degrading. Check reviews for recommendations as to which has the best signal strength/range

What causing that the Wi-Fi connecting at Windows8 faled every few minutes.???


Hi
The normal cause for WiFi failing regularly, dropping out, is due to distance from the WiFi signal source. This distance is not just feet and inches but also dependant upon the nature of objects between the signal source and the receiver. I recently found a case where the signal source had been put behind a large modern TV, and the WiFi signal in the next room was so slow and intermittent that the internet was unusable. Moving the router in front of the TV (in a position where it did not obstruct the picture!!!) cured the problem and they now have fast WiFi internet.

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.

HG8245A VS HG8245: The same Wifi Signal Strength?


Probably not...... With an External Antenna, there is nothing to stop the signal, whereas with the Internal, the Signal has to penetrate the case, before it goes to wherever...... I suggest using the External for the extra distance.... With 2 way radio the clearer the area yo have the Antenna, the greater the distance.... same here.... just using different Frequencies.

My touch hd could not connect to my home wifi although the connection is visible/detectied.


Even though it is visible and detected the signal strength may not be strong enough to establish a connection. Various factors affect connecting a device to the internet with a WiFi connection, including overall signal strength (G Routers are the weakest), distance from the wireless router to the console and obstacles such as walls and ceilings that interfere with the signal. If you're using a G router and you have your device is too far away or, has obstacles in the way, it will not connect. You should use an N-Router if there is a significant distance between the console and/or there are obstacles. Try connecting right next to the router and see what happens. Also, make sure you are putting in your router's WEP key in correctly.

My ipad keeps stating that Safari cannot open a file because it is not connected to the internet. Please advise me how i can keep apple safari connected to the internet. Bill Stewart


Bill,

The wifi router may be a little distance from where you are using the iPad. If the signal is weak then the iPad goes off and gives that error. You must make sure that you are getting a good wifi signal to ensure that the device is kept connected. I hope you have configured it to connect to the wifi router automatically. When you boot up it should show the wifi icon of a dot with some quarter circles trying to cover it on top. Atleast two of these quarter circles is a good signal.

My q1000 Modem brodcasts a wifi signal throughout my house, but every now and then the wifi signal gets dropped. what is cousing this and how do i fix it


Few basics need to be taken care of. Electronic devices like fax machines, printers, halogen lamps, speakers or anything which runs on electricity needs to be atleast 2 feet away from your router. Make sure that there is a distance of 2 feet or more between your modem and your router.

Im just trying to get wifi and interet but i cant get a access point in range wat do i do


Hi :)

In order to obtain wireless internet you need the following

1) Wireless Access Point.
2) A device capable of getting these signals

this is a common mistake when you first obtain wifi. Although the signal is wireless it still has to come from somewhere. Wifi is generally a short range system (I say generally because there is that new "Internet Stick" thing that Rogers? is renting and it is the same wifi you would have @ home but its distributed accross thier towers so you have internet most of the time from anywhere). You still need ot go and get Internet Service into your home, then distribute that signal wirelessly accross the house (in reallity its more than the house the point is the signal is being distributed from somewhere nearby) VIA Wireless Router. Even if you could find an Access Point 90% chances that the system is locked and needs a pw so that people cant just steal another persons signal and bog them down and pay for their internet basically.

Now. If that option isnt suitable for now you can obtain Free Wifi Signal from a number of places

1) Free WiFi is offered @ most public/government buildings (ie Library, Courthouse, Registries, etc etc)

2) Appartment buildings and Condoes are always a good place to check for an unprotected network to piggy back off (this isnt as shady as it sounds if its temporary, infact WiFi systems have backups in them that auto detect and connect to unprotected networks should yours lose signal for any reason)

Note Wi Fi systems signal strength and speed are affected by a couple factors

1) The strength of the incoming internet signal (signal is reduced the longer it flows in the lines to get to you or your pc) (IE long cords between wall and modem or device etc etc etc) Signal strength is also dependant on what you purchase/pay monthly of course (IE DSL Dial Up Or Cable)

2) the quality (usually depends on the price of the unit) of the Router you purchase and its ability to distribute that signal at distance

3) The Wireless Adaptor the device has and its range (depends on price and quality of that unit)

4) Distance from the router is a given but from what ive learned Copper Piping and Copper wires in houses / condos/ apartments tend to block signal strength.
