How do I configure wireless router for max speed and distance, Dlink DIR-628 dual band
Posted on 2010-08-31
I just purchased a new Dlink Rangebooster Dual N DIR-628 wireless router. Used auto setup settings. The router is on the 3rd floor of an old CHarleston SC house and I have a laptop on the 1st floor. According to the lapton signal indicator for the wireless (it's a new HP laptop with build in N wireless) the signal appears strong, but, the connection speed does not seem good. We tried listening to a church sermon in video, and it was stilted with audio lagging and it stopping periodically. But when we put the laptop on the second floor, it works fine. Thus it appears to be a range issue?
1.) Is there anything I can do to the configuration settings to help this situation, to improve speed and or distance.
2.) If I have to use a repeater, say another router, would I have to change the settings on this router I'm using.
Thanks for your help
