What would you recommend to extend my wi fi signal

Q: What would you recommend to extend my wi fi signal

I need to extend my signal on my router. It is not going as far as I need. The place where I need it has an Ethernet port in the room but I would need to be able to wire from the piece of equipment that I decide to use there. It would probably best be a router unless an access point can have ports to hook up to additional equipment in the room that I already use. I know it is best to stay with the same brand and my router is NETGEAR DGN3500. Can anyone tell me what they would use? Thanks.

Preferred Solution: What would you recommend to extend my wi fi signal

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: What would you recommend to extend my wi fi signal

Best to use either Wireless Access Point or Wireless Router (disable DHCP,VPN, SPI and NAT)

Example #1 using two Wireless Routers (note interwebs = modem)

Example #2 Using Wireless Router with Wireless Client Bridge with Wireless Access Point

There are also PowerLine Wireless (one box connects to our router lan port) uses AC power

These are the options you can use or just use Access Point which has Wireless features. That would connect to your Router as shown in the first example. Port 1 goes into the single port of Access Points to extend your Wireless where the room is not getting enough single to it.

Your model is also ADSL modem and router all you need to buy is either Powerline set or AP (Wireless Access Point) which has wired LAN connection port.

Hi, I have a D-link Wirless G router DIR-300 in my appartment, I need to use it 2 floors upstairs with my laptop, I've tried but I cannot get the signal enough and the navigation is not possible, sometimes it gets a low signal and let me see one or 2 page, then it disappear. I'm not expert about this, I've red on the internet I need an Access point, maybe I can put it in the middle floor, this is possible for me. Someone knows if the Access point is the right way and can suggest 1 low price model. many thanks

Hey All,

I have a question regarding extending my wireless network throughout my building.

I have on hand three Linksys WRT54GL wireless routers and am wanting to use all three to expand the coverage area of my signal.

What I am thinking is, using the latest firmware from Linksys, hard wiring the cable modem to the main router and then configuring each of the other two routers with a different IP, placing them a distance in either direction from the main central router. It sounds logical on paper, but can it be done?

If so, can anyone walk me through the process, or at least direct me to a link where this process is explained in detail?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

We use electronic devices throughout our home, and need something to strengthen our network signal, which is located on the 2nd floor. I've read so much about different ways - range extenders, range repeaters, range boosters and Access Points, but I don't know which would be the right one for me without costing an arm and a leg. I have a Verizon DLS Router D-Link DSL-2750B. I have contacted Verizon and posed this question on their forum, but he only answer I received was a suggestion to move the router to the 1st floor. Great, now I won't be able to connect on the 2nd!

Any help is appreciated.

A:Best solution to boost/extend network signal

The "best" and most reliable way is with wireless access point(s). However, some people don't find that solution acceptable because of the ethernet cable between router and access point(s).

Another way, which you didn't mention, is powerline adapters, which plug into an electrical outlet near the router and the wireless access point, using the electrical system instead of running an ethernet cable. Some powerline adapters include a wireless access point.

My wireless router is in my office at one end of the house; my wife's PC is at the other end. She's at about 40% reception quality. She never complains but I know she'd like a snappier Internet experience so I'm thinking of installing a Wi-Fi signal booster.

Three questions:

1) Do Wi-Fi signal boosters work?

2) Are they pretty easy to set up? (In other words, can I plug it in in the middle of the house and be up and running in a few minutes.)

3) Any models to suggest?

A:Using a repeater to extend the signal of an Access Point, both a TP-Link TL-WA901ND

I've never set up a Repeater, so blind leading the blind may not help much.

Is is possible to repeat the signal of an access point or does it have to be a router?Click to expand...

Depends on the Repeater and Access Point. I didn't check the manual, but I would expect that two of the same device would play nice together.

The SSID and the WPAkey of the repeater is set to the same as the access point, is that correct?Click to expand...

To my surprise I learned recently that the Repeater (at least some of them) can broadcast a different SSID. But certainly you have to specify that of the Access Point in order to make the connection between them. I'd get it working w/o encryption first. In some cases you have to specify the MAC Address of the other device--again, I did not check the manual for your units.

The access point is not the one handing out IP-addresses, the router is still acting as the DHCP-server, is that correct?Click to expand...

Yes, definitely.

Windows Vista and newer have built-in tools that can resize volumes. See our tutorial for that here.Windows XP and earlier don't have the tools built-in, so you have to use a third party partitioning tool. We have a tutorial for that, too. This tutorial covers shrinking an existing volume to make space for a new second volume, but resizing two existing volumes is substantially similar.

You do not need to scribble out the names on that screenshot, since it will do nothing for any of us. That signal graphic is just like on a cellphone. It does not mean anything. There are a lot of factors why you can have great radio signal, but have interference causing a blackout or outage.

We have a nice signal from the router until about the same time each day. Only cable tv modem is available. Evidently the country neighbors do lots of internet during the afternoon.

Is there a way to boost the signal coming down the cable line ? The cable tv company has installed new cables from the pole into the house. We have installed all new cables in the house.

All of the boosters I've seen are for after the wireless signal gets to the cable modem.

Thanks !


A:wireless signal boost to help low signal from cable tv ?

This is a known issue with cable connections. When its not heavily used the signal, speeds can be good, but when it is used heavily things can deteriorate.

However, how do you know that the cable signal is changing? Unless someone from the cable company has measured the cable signal you don't know that is what is causing the problems. I don't think the signal level on the cable side will affect the wi-fi signal level on that side. They are two separate functions. If your wi-fi signal is deteriorating it has to be some other interference.

Going back to the cable signal level, I had a change every day around 1PM and the cable modem would lose sync. It turned out to be a bad underground cable between the main cable distribution amp and an intermediate amp in our neighborhood (every thing is under ground). It took a special crew to find and fix this, the tech that came to the house knew "nothing". I had to keep calling everyday when it went bad and after the problem went "chronic" then they got the cable crew on it.

If you use a wifi network at home, there are undoubtedly limits to where you can access the signal. You might get a strong connection at the kitchen table, but take your laptop to the living room and you lose the signal. If you're looking to boost your signal a few feet or get a strong connection all the way upstairs in the back bedroom, we've got a handful of simple tricks and more advanced techniques to get you on connected to your home wifi from anywhere in your house.

Hello all,

I am having a problem that I hope someone here can help me with. I had to recently replace the hard drive in my laptop with a larger one (the old one was 30gb, the new one is 250gb). I managed to do that successfully (surprising to me as I am not tech savvy), yet when I go into disk management, I cannot extend C drive, as it isn't contiguous with the unallocated space. At the moment, my partitions look like this:

|C: 29.35gb|E: HP Recovery 6.36gb|F: OS Tools 1.55gb|Unallocated Space 260.82gb|

With the above scenario, the extend volume option is greyed out on drive C, so how do I go about getting around that?

Thank you in advance for your help here.

Oh, and I'm running Windows Vista Home Edition 32bit if that helps.

Hey guys,

Im looking for a program to extend a partition using free space I have. I used to use a program by Paragon Software on Vista but im not sure if it would work with 7. I dont really wanna risk it considering the drive I want to extend has all my valuable data on so I dont want it to go wrong. It also use to take a really long time.

Does anyone know any other programs which definitely work with 7 and is pretty quick?
Im also running 64-bit if that helps.
Thanks in advance.

I'd like to increase the capacity of my C drive which contains the operating system (142GB; 39% free space) by either deleting or shrinking my D drive which is empty (143GB, 100% free space).

I've read several post from users who found that the 'extend volume' option is greyed out and found that this is the case on my laptop.

I have yet to delete or shrink the D drive so there is currently no unassigned space on the disk.

Attached is a screen print of the Computer Management window showing the current situation.

What is my best laid plan?


Andrew Baxter.

A:Extend volume

Have you had a look in the tutorial part of the site to see if there is anything there that can help?

My thoughts would be that you would have to go into the D partition and delete it which would put it as unallocated space, then you should be able to extend the C partition into that space.

Hopefully the experts will see this post and give you all the information you need and say if I got it right or wrong

If it's D that you want to delete, you are going to have to find some other place to put the data on it temporarily.

Looks like D has over 200 GB of data. Where can you put that temporarily? Won't fit on F?

Or do you want to delete some other partition?

You can't extend C onto F.

You can move space from D to C, but D would remain, albeit smaller.

after a bit of a slog trying to log on here (had to setup a new user as my old one was not sending password resets) im finally on! phew

anyways im after a bit of advice with regards to extending my wireless range.

currently my setup is as follows

phone line > netgear ADSL2+ wireless router (834gv4 iirc)> eithernet cable to my pc (out of range)

however the other day I came across a netgear DG834GT super wireless adsl router.

does anyone know how I can set the DG834GT to act as a extender or repeater (not sure on the correct terminology here)

all I want to do is extend the signal to the few rooms that dont get it.


A:How to extend my wireless..?

What you need to do is setup the 2nd router as an access point. You run an ethernet cable from your first router (the one hooked up to the dsl modem) to the 2nd router but before you do thaqt configure the 2nd as an access point.. Also make sure the set it to a different channel and the same SSID. I can not give you specific instructions or even know for sure the the 834GT is capable but that is what you need to extend your range.

I have a 500GB hard disk in my PC, but only one partition of around 40GB size. The rest of the disc is unformatted.

I extended the partition, when I started running out of space for the media center features of Vista, but found that I couldn't record - I <think> this is because I had extended the partition, but into disk space which was unformatted. Does that sound right?

I assumed that when extending the partition, the added space would be formatted at the same time, but it seems not.

I subsequently shrunk the partition back to the original size.

So, can anyone give me step-by-step advice on how to extend my partition and end up with usable space?


A:How to extend partition?

What I've always done with partitioning is download the GParted Live CD here. You can also get one to boot from USB, I've just always used the CD. Anyway, just boot up from that, and you should be able to extend, format, split, and manage your partitions just about any way you want!

Thanks for any help!

A:HD Partitions don't extend

Windows 7's Disk Management will not let you extend to the left of your U partition, only the right.

You could delete the UBUNTU drive, and then create a new partition, which would include the 10GB you took off C.

Or you could get hold of third-party disk management software that will let you move the U partition, and then extend it or create a new partition on the 10GB unallocated space then merge it with the U partition.

Acronis do trial software if you don't want to spend any money.

BTW, it is always a big help if you post a screenshot of your Disk Management window just in case we're barking up the wrong tree.

You cannot change the size of the drive that you're currently using because it's locked for Windows. In order to resize your C: drive you'll have to use another tool (outside of Windows) to resize the partition - make sure that the tool is Vista compatible so that there's no issues with the resizing.

Hi all

I'm trying to extend my OS's partition onto a new hard drive that I've just installed. From what I've read it has to be adjacent in the GUI (meaning on the same drive), so does that mean I can't extend it onto a new disk? Do I have to use third-party software?

Update: Having just learned about Basic and Dynamic disks, it looks like I probably want a striped dynamic disk, but my disks are currently all basic. Would it be possible to change to a dynamic disk without having to reinstall the OS?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Okay. I recently created a 100GB partition for Windows 8. I then realised I would only need 50GB so I shrunk it by 50GB leaving me 50GB unallocated space. I then tried to use this as a partition for Ubuntu. Unfortunately, this was an 'extended partition' of the W8 one so I am unable to put any other OS's on it.

I've tried deleting the partition but it doesn't let me extend my C: partition. I can extend the W8 partition just fine. I'd prefer to solve this without uninstalling W8, deleting both partitions and starting again. I've attached a screenshot of my Disk Management if it helps at all.

G'day,,, you can still reach Power Options via Control Panel - you may need to play with Viewing options to see the icon. But in the Windows 7 search, just type power... and it'll find Power Options. Then from there, you can set different Power Plans.
Hope that helps somewhat...

I am trying to extend my desktop to a second, identical monitor.

I have a new Dell Studio desktop running Vista Home Premium X64, with an ATI Radeon 3450 display adapter. I have two identical 19" flat, widescreen LCD monitors connected to the display card using an SVGA "Y" adapter. In the ATI Catalyst Control Center, the second monitor is not enabled (it is greyed out). When I right-click on the number 2 monitor and select "Enable" the number 2 monitor graphic lights up for about 3 seconds, and then goes grey again. The monitors remain clones of each other. I have tried installing an updated driver from AMD for the card, but to no avail. The same problem occurs when I try to extend the desktop using the Windows control panel display properties. The monitors remain cloned.

Is this a Vista problem, or do I need another display adapter?

This is driving me nuts.

A:Cannot extend desktop to second monitor

It may be a problem with the y connector. Have you tried 2 separate cables?

I want to use that 4.88 GB and allocate it into any of the 4 drives... but the extend volume option is grey and i cannot select it.. since the unallocated space is at the right of all drives i should be able to use it, right? plz help me out...

A:Unable to extend volume

you will have to delete the unallocated partition to turn it in to free space and 4 partitions on a drive is rule of thumb just checking for you

I remember there used to be a FREE program which would allow you to use another physical machine as an extended desktop, over the network. I found maxivista but it's not free, the one i found was free and was by another name.

I have a bunch of unallocated space at the front of the drive after deleting my previous operating systems and I would like to expand my win 7 partition into that.

I'm looking for advice and instructions on the best way to do that.

Had I known I wouldn't need my vista partition I would've deleted that first and install 7 in the front, but oh well.

I already tried making a copy of my 7 partition in the front, but I didn't really like how that went.

I went into the original partition and added the copy into the bootloader but when I went into it the copy was not being recognized as the system drive.

Also my computer is running really slow after trying all that

I have EASUS Partition master BTW

A:Extend Partition to the left

I used gparted which is a freedownload to shift my partition to the left and then grow it into the free space on the right.
