how can i get better range with my linksys wireless router
Posted on 2003-11-29
I bought a new wireless linksys router and it works ok, connects everything fine except the range for the wireless is poor. It connects for a few seconds and goes off for a few minutes. Im using the modem WRT54G. Now the distance is about 30ft abd it has to go thru two walls. Now i owned an old SMC access point and even underthose circumsatncs it was allowing connection fine. I bought this router thinking it could replace both my SMC access point and the hub it was connected to. But the signal is weak. I turned the trans. rate down to 1M and the signal is stronger but it doesnt work consistantly. Does any one have any ideas of what measures i can take to help improve connection with my wireless? Even with how to place the router.
