In my experience being within 50 ft of various routers I have had seems to be the best singal strength. Any further then that I start having connection issues. So based on my experiences I would say the answer is No to your question. That is based on 'G' system routers. I have heard the 'N' routers have greater range and speed.

After working fine for approx 2 years, my laptop will not connect to my wireless network unless I'm in the same room as the router. I was running vista ultimate 64bit when this started happening....


i would try this

do down to the internet icon bottom right of you screen
click on it to open it
then open network and sharing
delete the wireless network that you was using
now wait a few seconds and windows should tell you wireless networks available
then click on the network icon again to open it find the name of your router
click on it then go down to click connect
and if you have set a password on the router you will need to enter that password
if you did nt the password may be the one written on the base of the router
or if none at all is set then hopefully it will connect for you

hope this has helped you
please let us know if this has helped you so that we may be able to help others
many thanks

Something is blocking wireless signal, i live in flat so in one room there is wireless router and in other room signal is very poor sometimes it's not connecting. i tryed 3 diffrent routers the last one is...

There are several likely causes, if the building has plaster walls it may have metal lath behind it blocking the signal.(this is fairly likely the cause) If there are high-power microwave transmitters within 2 or 3 km, can cause spotty interfering. Neighbors with a wireless router close to your wall can as well.
If you can move the router to a position across from the door between the rooms, you can test by connecting (wireless) your laptop near the router, then walk it into the other room (stay where you can see the router). If the laptop stays connected move across the room to a point where you did not have a signal previously, if you are still connected leave the laptop there and move the router back to its original location and recheck the laptops connection, if it is gone, it is your wall...

NETGEAR wgr614 cable wireless router

have you tried to follow the manual chapter 3, page 3-1 ?
If you lost your manual you can find one here:

One of your computers can go online because its using a wired connection to the router, but the wireless clients cannot access the connection - is this right?

Then you only need to setup the wireless part in the router.

the internet cable should be connected to the "Internet" or "WAN" port on the router. Your PC should be connected to one of the regular ports on the back of the router and your laptop can be connected just like the pc, or it can connect wirelessly.

Then you should be able to see the internet from your laptop.
