one room not covered in house
« on: March 02, 2012, 12:25:18 AM »

Hello guys,

I'd like to get some advice if possible.

i have quite a few routers including 2 d-links ones.

I have a problem that my routers do not go as far as the kitchen in my house.
The kitchen is not far from my router at all and there are only 2 walls between the router and the kitchen.

I have bought long antennas to attach at the back of the router but this makes thinks worse so i stick to the original antennas.

I have tried tweaking things on the router - changing channel to other than 1.  etc..

Still a very poor signal in my kitchen.

I wonder wether it would make any difference if i buy 3 cables of 3 meters each and i spread my antennas a bit wider.

That is all i can think of at this stage.

I would appreciate any ideas you have.

What wireless modes are you using? Under Setup/Wireless/Manual.
Try single mode G or mixed G and N on 2.4Ghz and single mode A or N on 5Ghz?
Channel Width set for Auto 20/40Mhz or try 20Mhz only.
What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/Auto TPIK and AES. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only.
What wireless devices do you have connected?
Any cordless house phones?
Any other WiFi routers in the area? Use InSSIDer to find out.
Turn off Short GI and Extra Wireless Protection if you have it. Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.
