You can try a couple of things...

  1. get an external antenna to boost signal strength
  2. ensure you are not sharing a channel with someon else causing interferance and degrading your signal. download NETSTUMBLER and scan for vacant channels.
  3. ensure cordless phones are not near router antenna as they often share similar frequencies causing interference
  4. move router if possible to get a "clearer" path - try to put it somewhere that reduces the number of walls etc between it and where you want to work on the laptop
BTW - I have an external antenna and I cover my 3600 sqft house easily

Router issues in my apartment.


When to moved into the penthouse, there are more walls between the wireless router and the laptop in the bedroom. The walls are probably reinforced concrete walls which will stop or weaken the radio waves penetrating into different rooms. When you lived in a house this was not a problem.
The only way to solve this problem is to move the wireless router near an opening such as a door and move the laptop as close as possible to the wireless router to get a better signal strength.
The outer way is to install a wireless repeater or connect a long network cable to the router and the laptop.

Connecting to a lapto


Hi rgf47331,

When you move upstairs there is a solid wall in between that interfears with the signals.The only thing you can try is calling up belikin and asking them to check your settings on the router and see if changing the mode or channel helps. i wont recommend you do that on your own as you may end losing the connection altogether.

I hope this helped
