You can order an adapter that plugs into the wall socket at the router and at the computer. The direct connect to the router and the network adapter in the computer assures a good connection. Of course, a laptop that you move around with couldn't use this as effectively.

SOURCE: want to increase my wifi signal

hi there

wifi usb adapters used for desktops are ok but what you really need for that are pci slot wifi. but its your preference thought.

as youve mentioned, you want to increase your signal strength but you are hesitant to buy another device for that.

what you can do if you dont want to buy anything is use foil.

dont fret thought, foil is proven to work specially in increasing/boosting signal. what you want to do is make use of a parabolic or circular shape bowl or sattelite dish-like plate and cover that with foil. be sure that the usb adapter is in the middle of your sattelite though.

once youve already made this, you can try and use it and connect to the access point. b sure also to position it towards it ok.

hope this helps.

Does this happen if you try connecting it into all USB ports? Try another USB port. Do you know if your USB ports are 2.0?

SOURCE: problems with WiFi netgear WNDA3100

the drivers should be installed in windows 7 by default, their so called "smart wizard" has some compatibility issues with windows 7, I get it to load up and it will shut down or glitch out. What I did was uninstall the downloaded driver and use the default windows drivers, flipped the switch off to my built in G wifi adapter and the netgear automatically kicked in and took over as the default wireless adapter.

Change the position of the WiFi router, because there are things like duct work, metal studs and electrical wiring concealed in the walls that can and will have an effect on WiFi signal strength.

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

My netgear G54/N150 wifi usb micro adapter wont connect to the internet


Your computer operating system makes the network choice. If you're using windows, look in the lower right-hand corner and you should see signal-strength bars like on your cell phone. Click on those bars and you should see a list of available wireless networks. Click on the network for your uverse router and choose "Disconnect." Then click on the network for your hotspot and choose "Connect." Then your computer should connect to your hotspot.

D-link DWA130 usb wirerless adapter in crease the signal


USB wifi adapter defaults to its best setting so there is nothing you can do to make it pick up signals better.

You might be able to increase your routers broadcast range if the router belongs to you.

If you are using a laptop in a public place (like an coffee shop or an airport or something) the best thing you can do is move around and get closer to the router, they have decent range so you shouldn't have to move very far.

The instruction manual should have tips on boosting range.

I get bad reception with my TP-Link PCIe Wifi Card! What can i do?


Often times the antennae on these routers come loose. Ensure that the antennae are firmly plugged in.

Try also changing the channel. Routers have 11 to 13 possible channels and most default to 1 6 or 11. Try a different number to reduce interference.

Physical construction of your house can hinder wifi reception. This is often subjective and your best bet would be to move the router around the room or into a different room if possible.

Netgear N150 Wireless usb adapter just installed. It identifies router and confirms good connectivity, but continues "acquiring network address" without success.


This means the DHCP service is not enabled on the wireless router.

either enable the DHCP service on the wireless router

or

Give a static IP onto your wireless NIC card ( Netgear N150 Wireless usb adapter )

Not receiving n-type signal from router


Put the laptop next to the router and see what signal you then get. do the following
---- start>control panel>system and maintenance>system>device manager on lefthandside> network adapters click on the +sign>right click on the wifi adapter>properties>now in there there maybe a TAB for advanced which allows you to select the type of signal the adapter is set for - check its not set to G. ----- loss of signal in room, wifi signals can be reduced, if they pass through walls etc - sometimes just a small change in the routers position or aerial alignment can make a big difference ------ download and install - http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php - you can then monitor on the graph the signal strength and see when it drops off -------- also a change in the wireless channel used on the router can helpp - Use channel 1 or 6 or 11 as they do not overlap - have a look at the other signals being broadcast and what channel they are on - then choose one that is free or also on a very weak signal to minimise interference

Your problem may be the construction of your room and the walls may be blocking the signal from bouncing around. Try to move your wireless unit to different parts of the room for a better signal.

If you click on VIEW WIRELESS NETWORKS and you have more than one signal being picked up by your notebook, you may be connecting to your neighbors systems and you may have a "channel" issue. In order to change the channel, you need to know what kind of router you have. If Linksys, 2wire, Netgear. Each have a different way of accessing the router for configuration.

First you need to know where your router is located. Click on START, RUN, type CMD followed by either the ENTER key or the RETURN key. In the black box, type IPCONFIG/ALL and look for default gateway.

In the above example, the default gateway is 10.10.0.1. Enter whatever number you have into the address bar of your browser.
0b57fdb.jpg
In the above example, my router is a D-Link at address 10.10.0.1. Your's may vary depending on the brand. In any case you will need to log into your router, go to the wireless section of your screen and there you should be able to change the default channel. In Linksys, this would be under the WIRELESS section. Again, you need to know your router. When you do get in, try setting your channel to channel 3, 7, or 8.
