Belkyn g router does not connects with full strength. I have connected just a laptop and a tablet. Tablet gets average speed but laptop finds it hard to receive signal.

The reason your laptop may have trouble connecting at full speed could be due to the quality of its wireless card/motherboard (if built in). There are a few things you can try, first you can try updating the drivers for your wireless card/motherboard via windows update or alternatively from the laptop manufactures website. You will need to make a note of your make and model number of your laptop which is normally on a sticker underneath the laptop. This may improve things as there have been some minor signal issues addressed with driver updates on some wireless card.

Other options:

check if your router has detachable aerials (if they can be unscrewed) if they can you could buy some aerials with a higher dbi. Routers typically ship with 1-3 dbi aerials you can get them typically as high as 8dbi for indoor use, this will improve the signal slightly. If your router has more than one aerial you should replace each of them with the same type and dbi to ensure it works correctly.

buy a usb wireless adapter, these give you access to wireless if you don't have any built in, but can also be used as replacements for your in built wireless.

change your router (a last resort) but there are a number of advantages to this, newer routers a more powerful, faster and use "N" which is faster than G. N gives you speeds of 125mbps upwards. Wireless N routers are backward compatible for B and G devices so any older devices will work but they will still be subject to any limitations of wireless B or G.

According to the manual, the Thomson ST585v6 doesn't support WPS. You will have to record the wireless passphrase and enter it manually in the device you're trying to install on the network.

Please note that it is not possible to attach an external antenna to this router as it does not suppport detachable antenna. To extend the wireless range I would suggest you to upgrade your router with a powerful router say WNR2000 or WNR834Bv2

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Can't connect AirPlus Extreme G+ wireless router and modem

assuming you have adsl/broadband coming down your phone line, you plugn the phone lead into the Thompson. If this is working you simply connect one of the LAN sockets on the Thompson to the Internet socket on the back of the Airplus.
You will need to make sure they dont both have the same IP address otherwise they won't work.
The IP address is the numbers you log into them with, eg
If they're both hte same, you'll need to log into one and change the address in the advanced settings area.

Can I remove the aerial of the Thomson TG585V7 wireless router?

That is correct, you cannot. It was not designed to be removed. You can dissasemble the unit and install a new antenna, which will require some electronics background but it can be done.
