I have recently got a sky broadband router for the internet and it works perfectly in one room but when other laptops want to connect to the internet from other locations the signal is too weak..:( Any ideas from anyone?
I know your going to think i am nuts, but leave the router switched on and let it settle and you will find the router signal gets stronger. I have the same router (black in colour) and i always used to switch it off at night and when switched back on the signal was so so poor for my wireless PC, then i left it by mistake switched on for a few days and the signal now is brilliant - i know it sounds nuts, but it has worked for me!
Thank you all for the advice but iv tried moving it around to diff rooms the problem is when its in one room, the other rooms in the house cannot get internet. Is it possible for me to buy another router of the same brand or different and use it in the other rooms? Can i just use the username and password from this one?
howard 64 - While I agree that the broadband speed may be quicker from the master socket I fail to see how this affects the wireless strength/range. It may be that it is a better location with fewer obstacles.
If changing channels hasn't worked and moving it around also hasn't worked it could be due to your house construction. You can get repeaters see for example click here
Is the router N standard? That may produce a better ranger
If its the same sagem as me then no its not N standard!
howard64 - The broadband speed is faster from the master socket, i agree, however, this will not change the wireless range! If a wireless router can transmit say 100 metres, then plugging it into a different socket will not make it transmit any further!
