      Poor Signal Strength


      Can anyone advise me on how to get a better signal from the router. (Netgear V2 DG934G)

      I am upstairs and one room laterally from my router and I get 1 bar on my laptop, when six feet from it downstairs (in Lounge) I get 5 bars. Outside downstairs only 15 metres away I lose connection.

      I used to get 5 bars all over my old house (with NTL cable) connected to my D- Link Wireless router, can I connect this to my Sky one and turn off the sky wireless. (i.e use an ethernet cable twixt the sky ADSL and the D-Link wireless router)

      I think the D-Link router (has only RJ45 connectors and no telephone input) is not an ADSL router. (DI 624+)

      Cheers in advance:

      Re: Poor Signal Strength

      What you have is a Cable router. Although it is not a WiFi n router, it does work at up to 108mbps and is likely to have a significantly stronger signal than the Sky Netgear router (standard WiFi g).

      You could configure th D-Link DI 624+ to work as either a slave to the Netgear router or you could configure it to run your LAN and allow the Netgear to effectively work as a Modem.

      Take a look at these threads and you should be able to accomplish either option:

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
