Question about Belkin Wireless-N Wireless Router with 4-Port Switch
I bought a Belkin F5D8233-4v3 wireliess N router to replace my old Linksys wireless B router. I was especting a better reception from the N router. However, to my disappointment the signal strength of this N router is about same as the old rotuer (getting 1 to 2 bars and 11mbps). I place the new router at the same place as the old router (which is on the second floor) and my wireless laptop is on the 3rd floor. I had call the support staffs in Belkin and even updated the firmware but all this did not help. The reason why I bought this router is because I read many good report regarding this router. Anyone can help? Thanks.
With speeds around 10 mb to the router over wireless you may want to consider checking if AUTO chanel is enabled or available on that model
If so then enable it.
Also consider moving the router if there are any other wireless devices nearby eg. cordless phone.
It may also be the the windows "zero wireless configuration" service is finding too many other wireless signals nearby that may be stronger than your own
If that is the case you may want to disable the service and set it to manual. Better still if you have a utility on the laptop (most have) then try set that to control the wireless setting instead of windows.
One of those last two items should help you maintain a better connection but only holds true if you have a reasonable connection to the router to start with.
You might also consider a cheaper wireless repeater to enable you to get better speeds
