This is a simple, USB based network interface card (NIC). There's little to be changed as it is built with tiny surface mount devices that can not dissipate heat nearly as well standard through hole components can. Boosting voltages, etc will only shorten the life of the device.

Locating the NIC closer to the WiFi source will improve throughput of the device. If this is not possible, increasing the height or physically reorienting it may provide some gain. The easiest way to do this is to purchase a simple USB cable that will connect to the computer's USB poert and accept the WNA1100 on the other. These cables are often available at electronics and computer stores in 3, 6 and 12 or more foot lengths for under $20 (and significantly less online). I would not purchase or connect lengths greater than 15 feet, as this is the maximum length supported by the USB standard without some sort of active repeater built in to the receiving end. By placing the WNA1100 at the end of the cable, you are free to orient it in the best position to maximize capture of the WiFi signal, regardless of the position or location of the computer.

Good luck!

What kind of wireless access point or extender should I use to project wifi in far bedrooms of a long, train-car like house?


Hi James, the wireless extender is the best way but you should go for the plug in type.....this plugs into the mains and gives you wifi and 1 wired connection, so you can plug into the room you want wifi to reach, I have linked a Netgear option but there are others! EX2700

If you are using a wireless connection you could have a weak signal, move the router or the XBox to get a stronger signal.
You could be getting an interference with other wireless routers/access points in your area. Check the broadcast channels of the various routers/access points in your area and select a channel that is not being used for your wireless router.

I have a verizon westell 7500 gateway router. Will I be able to use a netgear WG111 2v wireless adapter to get a stronger signal from it for my laptop?


I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Is the signal too weak?
You could use the router to extend the range with the proper configuration. Either that, or purchase a wireless extender that does just that.
You won't get a stronger signal. A router does not boost a signal. It can pick up the signal and rebroadcast it using a different IP.

Stronger Wireless Signal with 2701HGB Router?


Netgear's web site has an excellent tutorial on how to do this. It involves turning off the DHCP on the Netgear, and linking the LAN prots of the two routers. There is no connection to the WAN port of the Netgear.

Connection problem


if it's going offline, then it's losing the signal, or is recieving a low signal, it should be at 54mbps but when it gets below around 24mbps, it will disconnect and look for a stronger connection in your area, or disconnect from the net altogether.

 

Put your router in a higher and better line of sight to your adapter, walls and floors can block the signal and check that it's not your router that is losing the connection.

Netgear wireless adapter


When you say home bases, i assume you mean desktop pc's. If the channel you mention is the channel that the router works off eg channel 11 then all wireless adapters have to be set to channel 11, or the same channel as the router. The reason for one disconnecting from the internet will probably be the adapter losing the signal because of obstacles like walls and doors, as if the signal gets too low then the reciever cannot connect properly with the router, hence dropping the connection. Try the router in a different higher position or at a phone socket nearer the troubled pc. The connection accross the network should be atleast good and at 54 MBPS, anything less may not connect properly. The laptops will tend to have a stronger connection as most have a signal up booster built in the screen.
