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.

Netgear 111v3 usb linksys wireless router windows xp pro NG wizard shows all dots 90% + for signal strength, but cannot renew IP address so no internet


Do you have encryption enabled on your wireless router? There is a strong possibility that you have entered the wrong encryption key (network key) while connecting to the wireless network.

NetGear wireless router WGR614 v6 runs with speed 1 0 mbps instead of 54 mbps


how far away are you from your wireless router when your getting 10 mbps?
Please note that wireless will not guarantee speeds of 54 mbps.
It will dramatically decrease the farther away you or how much interference there is between your laptop and router.
Also check if your wireless router is set to 802.11 G mode. if you have any devices that only support 802.11B you will only get speeds up to 11mbps compared to G at 54mbps

The wifi is going 54 mbps but should be 100 mbps all cords are plugged-in properly what do i do?


wireless speed depends upon the wireless card that is installed on your computer...

if your computer have a

802.11 b/g card, it will connect at 54 mbps speed (That is the maximum speed at which the wireless can connect to the router)...


802.11 n card, it will connect at 150+ mbps speed...

I have a 20 mbps adsl line, but whene i connect the 3com 3crwe554g72 router wireless i only get 2 mbps , why?


This issue is most likely due to the quality of the signal between the PC and the wireless. If there is a lot of interference or the wireless devices are far from the 3COM, then the signal will be less then optimal. Sinnal quality will degrade quickly when going through walls floors and celings as the density and metal contained in these structures block wireless signals. Interference can come form other wireless devices, cordless phones, RC toys and some wireless mice and keyboards.

The other factor to consider is the type of wireless being used. Wireless like all technology get better as time goes by. As new technology comes out it is categorized and classified. For Wifi there are currently 5 separate specifications for wireless. They are:
802.11 (Specless) - approx 1997 era devices. operates at 1 to 2 Mbps
802.11 a - approx 1999. operates at 6Mbps.
802.11 b - approx 1999. operates at 11 Mbps.
802.11 g - approx 2003. operates at 54 Mbps
802.11 n - October 2009. operates at 100+ Mbps

If you have an old wireless device it will work with the 3COM but only at the speed it was designed for.

You can always check your speed by connecting directly to the 3COM with ethernet cable and going to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

Slow internet at 120 Kbps but fast connection at 54 Mbps Why


54 Mbps is the speed between your computer and your wireless router. The .8 Mbps is the speed of your connection between the router and the internet. You should call your ISP and ask what your speeds should be; there could be something wrong on their end or your modem might be malfunctioning. It's also possible that your WiFi connection itself has a weak signal. That can be corrected by moving the router and the computer closer together, or getting a signal relay and putting it between them.

Strong wireless signal keeps dropping out and takes along time to connect


it is from the usb wireless device you are using. it may happen if the device or where it is shakes.

Wireless adapter connects at 54mb but drops to 1mb w/any dataload


Usually, a device will renegotiate a slower speed to compensate for interference. slower speeds are sometimes the most reliable. Its possible to change your wifi channels and try to get one that has less interference, and maintain a stronger signal. You might also want to ensure that any cordless phones in your area are NOT on the same frequency range as your router, because as soon as "Old Great Aunt Mildred" calls you or your neighbor, your wifi goes bye bye.

I just installed d-link wbr-1310. I am getting 1/4 the speed using wireless. Are there any setting I change to resolve this.


Wireless connections are running on a slower speed by definition.

A wired connection with this router sets the maximum speed at 100 Mbps.

A wireless signal in a 802.11b network has a maximum speed of 11 Mbps, and a 802.11g network has a maximum speed of 54 Mbps.

These numbers are theoretical numbers and never achieved in reality. (like a Toyota Prius makes 60mpg...)

So depending on your wireless network adapter and how your setup physically looks like (distance to the router, interference with telephones, microwaves etc.) it is absolutely possible that you wireless speed is considerably slower than your wired connection.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Slow speed tests


Your HP G60 has an 802.11 b/g card. 802.11g has a maximum rated speed of 54 mbps, like the router. You never get the actual "rated" speed with wireless cards, this would occur only with maximum signal strength, no network protocol overhead, no security, etc. if you were to replace your current card in the Satellite with an 802.11 b/g card, you would get comparable results.

Wireless routers


If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.
