Question about 2wire (2701HG-B) Wireless Router
Hi Good Day,
In the wireless settings of the 2Wire device's user interface, there is an option to boost the gain/signal. I think you can choose 1-thru-10 and it comes defaulted at 6. Keep in mind that the 2Wire modem/router is a cheap POS and diming it out may cause heat issues and earlier failure. I say "earlier" because it WILL fail sooner or later. Yes, it's a fact. Radio interference from outside sources will affect your usable range, so while you are in the interface, change the radio channel to 3. Most wireless systems are defaultly set for "auto", 1, 6, or 11. In my experience, channel 3 has the least interference from other wireless systems and 2.4GHz cordless phones.
