Your problem may be the construction of your room and the walls may be blocking the signal from bouncing around. Try to move your wireless unit to different parts of the room for a better signal.

If you click on VIEW WIRELESS NETWORKS and you have more than one signal being picked up by your notebook, you may be connecting to your neighbors systems and you may have a "channel" issue. In order to change the channel, you need to know what kind of router you have. If Linksys, 2wire, Netgear. Each have a different way of accessing the router for configuration.

First you need to know where your router is located. Click on START, RUN, type CMD followed by either the ENTER key or the RETURN key. In the black box, type IPCONFIG/ALL and look for default gateway.

In the above example, the default gateway is 10.10.0.1. Enter whatever number you have into the address bar of your browser.

In the above example, my router is a D-Link at address 10.10.0.1. Your's may vary depending on the brand. In any case you will need to log into your router, go to the wireless section of your screen and there you should be able to change the default channel. In Linksys, this would be under the WIRELESS section. Again, you need to know your router. When you do get in, try setting your channel to channel 3, 7, or 8.

Poor connectivity


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Where do I go to change router channel?


You can find the user manual for your router here:
http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=DIR-655&tab=3

To change the channel, look on page 10 of the user manual for directions on how to access the web interface of the router.
Once you get logged-in to the router, you can then go to page 22 to change the settings for the channel. You'll want to disable "Enable Auto Channel Scan" and choose 802.11g as the "802.11 Mode". Then choose the channel you require from the "Wireless Channel" selection.

Mazmart -
This is one of the best questions I've had in a long time. Your question is difficult to answer, however, since you made a change to your setup prior to this issue, I would REVERSE this change. WIFI can be finicky, so this very well may be due to moving it. Move it back. If that fixes it, then do not move it again (I haven't told you much yet).
If you NEED it there, then research "WIFI repeater." I'm not allowed to endorse any particular product, but this should get you on your way to expanding your network.
I can tell by your question that you are more capable than most users. I think this advice will serve you well!
Thanks for using Fixya!
