    F5D8236-4 is under incompatible list .... reason: RT3052 SOC, 2MB Flash/8MB RAM.

    A router can not be supported by dd-wrt if:
    it is based on a Texas Instruments (TI) chipset
    it is based on a Marvell chipset (maybe in the future?)
    it is based on a Ubicom chipset
    it is based on a Realtek chipset
    it is based on a Broadcom 63xx chipset
    it is based on a Freescale chipset
    it has <2MB flash
    it has <4MB flash and is NOT Broadcom (any other supported vendor) based
    it has <16MB RAM and is NOT Broadcom (any other supported vendor) based
    it has an integrated modem (dd-wrt is router firmware and does not support the modem part)
    it has VOIP ports (RJ-9)

Repeater isn't getting signal


Plug the first router into a LAN port on the router you are using as a repeater. Don't plug into the WAN port. That should make it work

Hello, It sounds like the repeater is not within range of the wireless router or access point. The repeater does not act as a wireless router by itself, but rather like extra antenna/signal booster, so you still need to have a wireless router within range. The router must also be using a router that is 802.11B/G compatible, or else the repeater might not be able to receive that frequency signal in order to boost it (should work with N also, but not quite sure if it has to be set to Standard Channel due to how N works. We are working on wireless frequencies in my course now, so I can contact my instructor, and get back to on that). If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or simply reply.

I'm afraid you can't boost the sgnal from the router without buying a repeater/booster box.

You will get the best wireless performance from your router if it is in the highest position possible in the house - of course it may be impractical to move it but, if you can, then do so.

The only other option is to purchase a booster. I don't know what country you are living in, so I can't give definitive advice. You should try a search on google or ebay for "wireless router booster"

Everything is possible!

If you want more advice please reply here with a comment and I will try to provide further assistance.

Excellent signal low speed transfer


You can boost the signal range of a WiFi computer network in several ways: Answer:
  • reposition your router (or access point) to avoid obstructions and radio interference. Both reduce the range of WiFi network equipment. Common sources of interference in residences include brick or plaster walls, microwave ovens, and cordless phones. Additionally, consider changing the WiFi channel number on your equipment to avoid interference.

  • upgrade the antenna on your router (or access point). WiFi antennas on most wireless base stations can be removed and replaced with more powerful ones.

  • add another access point (or router). Large residences typically require no more than two APs, whereas businesses may employ dozens of APs. In a home, this option requires connecting your primary wireless router (access point) to the second one with Ethernet cable; home wireless routers and/or APs don't normally communicate with each other directly.

  • add a bi-directional WiFi signal amplifier to wireless devices as needed. A WiFi signal amplifier (sometimes called "signal booster") attaches to a router, access point or Wi-Fi client at the place where the antenna connects. Bi-directional antennas amplify the wireless signal in both transmit and receive directions. These should be used as WiFi transmissions are two-way radio communications.

  • add a WiFi repeater. A wireless repeater is a stand-alone unit positioned within range of a wireless router (access point). Repeaters (sometimes called "range expanders") serve as a two-way relay station for WiFi signals. Clients too far away from the original router / AP can instead associate with the WLAN through the repeater.

Unfortunately the range on a G router is usually reliable to about 200 ft or so, depending on obstructions. There is no way to boost the 802.11g signal. You'd be looking at upgrading your router and card to 802.11n, which would give you increased range. .

There are several ways to boost the signal from your router. One, you could try moving it to a central location of the house..the more walls and obstacles, the worse the signal. Try moving any cordless phones away from due to the wireless phones transmitting on the same frequency causing interference. You could also purchase a repeater from an electronics store..I believe AirLink makes one. These devices intercept the original signal and act as a booster..you would try to center this device in your home as well. You could also purchase a better antenna for your router with a higher gain output. Just some suggestions.

Good Luck

Home network signal - boost needed


You can get a high gain antenna or better yet get a wireless range expander to repeat the signal of your router so it can reach the entire house.
hope that helps.......

Boosting Signal Strength


Greetings,
It is more likely the placement of the router an/or PS3. If possible do not place anything on top of them and make sure there is space around the units.
You can try using a repeater which will amplify your wi-fi signal. A repeater is a small box that will lock onto your wifi and extend the range of your current router. Here are some examples:

You can also try the cheap solutions found in these two videos for boosting antenna strenght:
