Hi, I have a wireless router which is a Netgear WNR2000. I am using it in a large house with thick walls and am getting poor or zero reception in some parts of the house. Any suggestions as to how I could increase the range? Many thanks
I had a similar problem last year with little or no wifi signal, continual drop-offs, in certain parts of the house, and purchased a devolo wifi extender kit.
One end plugs into mains skt upstairs (in my particular case) near the main desktop which is hard wired to the router (they provide a very long cable, which is useful), and the other end (with an aerial) plugs into a mains skt anywhere else in the house. It's superb, works very well, although a bit pricey (c.£125). Google devolo wifi extender.
what adapter has the pc got that you are trying to connect with?the wireless n router that i was using would only connect at a higher speed on channel 6 or 11.whether that would give you a better reception i don't know but is worth a try.is the adapter in your computer a wireless n adapter?
