Hi, On a similar model, the advertised range is anywhere from 50-100 meters outdoor or open air. Inside the house or within the office, the walls, doors, drapes, furnitures etc obstruct the signal and brings down the range to less than half. What we have tried to improve the signal range: 1. Install the AP/Router high up not just on top of a closet or cabinet but really high, about a foot from the ceiling; 2. Approximate the very center of the various locations of the laptops and install the AP/Router there; 3. Disabled and did not use security WEP, WPA but turn MAC Filter on; 4. Use an external hi-gain omni antenna; 5. Install a second similar unit at the farthest coverage and run it as a repeater; 6. Replace the AP/Router with the new N type (which again claimed to be 4X wider and 12X faster) which made us go back to step 1. It's a love/hate experience and we ended installing more repeaters. But it works. Hope this give you an idea or two (but hopefully not the frustration nor the headache). Post back how things worked out your end. Cheers

Poor connectivity

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.

My Belkin N-1 is very weak. Can't get a signal from one room to the next. Is there a fix or does it need repair?

Try changing the channels on your router... Also, if you have a wireless phone near it make sure that they are using different channels or better to move it away from your router... very thick walls also weakens the signal... try placing it first near your laptop just to check that you can connect wirelessly before you move it away... you might just need an range expander or repeater to boost up the signal

Wifi range problem on Acer Aspire 5100 notebook

Move the router away from the computer, like on the top shelf of the desk, and away from any cordless phones and other devices.
Try moving the antenna as well, choose a diffrent channel like 11 instead of default 6.
It sounds like you are getting some stron RF interference from one of the devices near the router.
I hope this helps resolve your issue.
Good Luck.

Router is not going to work as repeater it will work as an access point but you still have to run a cat 5 cable from your internet source to router.You are better of getting an actual repeater.

Cannot connect to 614 router

Hi Crockett1972!

Were you able to connect sucessfully w/o any wireless security? If No, then try this first but if Yes then try to verify your WEP keys. You might be mistyping it at the wireless desktop with the WB311.

Hope this helps!

You need to do some reconfiguration on your router by using the setup cd or by manually configuring it using the user interface of the router.

DI-524 wireless router as wireless switch

You need to disable the DHCP server on your "slave" wireless router ( the di-524 ). In D-link routers this might be called configuring it to be an "Access point".

When this happens, connecting to the second wireless router should cause your computer to obtain an IP address which is in the range of the first router (that is to say, it will use the first router's dhcp server).

You should be able have your laptop connect with an automatic IP address and have it work.

Worked fine for a year, suddenly it's busted

I came across the same trouble after several hours power out of the router (has to move DL-524 from room shelf to closet). In my case it lost WiFi security configuration (was no encryption and must be WPA/PSK). I set WPA back, 64-byte PSK key was not corrupted, and Dl begun to run smoothly again. After that I got an experiment and powered off Dl for a night, WiFi security settings was lost again. My be it's a feature of the device, may be I'm (we are) not so lucky :). Try to check "Wireless setup" - hope it'll be helpfull...
