      My Internet and Gaming Setup - Need Advise Please

      Good Afternoon Sky Fans!

      I currently have my modem plugged into my PC upstairs and also my Xbox 360 plugged into the router as well. I can use my laptop upstairs and obtain a wireless feed, however when I go downstairs I can no longer recieve that connection for my laptop or my Nintendo Wii. Would people recommend that I flash my router/get the ADSL username and password or, buy a signal booster (if they exist) for my Sky router?

      I am not technically biased in anyway to this so if things don't make sence, i'm sorry.

      Thanks

      Russ

      Welcome to the SkyUser Forum!

      I do not think that you can get a signal booster but if you go into your Sky router by using the username as admin and the password sky unless you have changed it and check your mode. Is this set at g & b or just b. This is because these modes have different penetration through walls and objects b is the weakest and g has better penetration, it would be best to set it at g & b (Atleast i think this is correct). If this isn't the problem check the wireless adapter settings on the laptop.

      You could also try changing the channel, but in truth you are better off using something like this, they also do a wireless version


      (note: i do use this one, but you can get other makes/models which may be cheaper and/or better, ebay would be a good place to look)

      Edit: using the above would also mean you can have the router downstairs in the master socket

      ok that sounds good! just to check though, i plug one into a socket and connect it to my modem and then the other one next to my Wii and plug that into the wii and it will wirelessly send the internet to it?

      Sorry if it sounds like im being an idiot but im not technically bias in any way!

      the wii requires an ethernet adapter if you want to use it with that
