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. where do i find the area so I can up the strength - wink.png 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.

My laptop keeps saying validating identity and it wont go on line troubleshooting says things seemed to be ok but its trying to say a cable is unplugged or my local area connection is firewalled and i


You didn't provide your router make, model, so this is a general procedure. Wired or Wireless connection? You didn't say? Shut down the computer, unplug , remove battery. Unplug the wired/wireless device,. Unplug the ISP modem, remove battery, if applicable. Verify ALL cables and connections. Replace battery in the ISP modem, plug in, wait for selftest. Plug in the wired/wireless device, wait for selftest, If wireless, try a Ethernet cable to verify your router is connecting to the ISP modem. I would suspect a Laptop issue.

My internet tablet keeps saying network problem when i try connecting to wifi


Please check your password and see the strength of the WI-Fi in your area. If this a wifi of your home wireless modem then check the modem and reset accordingly. switch off power for some time and restart.
If not check your tablet on another wifi to confirm this or if the configuration has gone off from the settings.
make sure that your password and the network is connected as seen on the lower taskbar .

CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things thatcan 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 thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

My netbook is connected and the signal strength is excellent but it won allow me to go to any websites


The signal strength is of the LAN modem. Only when the internet connection is provided to the LAN modem, you will be able to access internet on your notebook.

My icon says I only have 80% signal strength, is


80% is a good signal strength....but if you want to increase the signal strength, then you need to move the wireless router to a very ventilated area, also the router should be placed atleast 5 feet away from other electronic devices like, modem, ups, microwave ovens,refrigerators etc.... also there should be a line of sight between the router and the wi-fi adapter... but in order to connect to a wireless network 25% of signal strength is enough....

Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610


If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123

Signal strength very low. Belkin ADSL2 modem with wireless g router F 507632-4


signal is bouncing off doors and walls to get to your comp
move comp closer to modem if it increases and your signal strength increases then you know youll have to be close to modem

other problem someone taped your signal and it working off of it call your provider to come out test the wireless signal strength and or password your wireless router settings so some one cant interfere with signal

i dont like wireless myself in the home i go straight cable with ether net cord this always has strenght and cannot be tapped

I think 2wire routers are good in providing signal strength. Contact the 2wire vendor regarding your requirements.
