How To Boost Wireless Signal

I recently upgraded my wireless router from a D-link Di-614 to a Linksys e3000. A buddy of mine recommended it saying he didnt have wifi issues from the top of his house all the way to the basement. I live in a bungalo home, and so the router is on one side of the house, and my Desk and macbook pro is on the otherside. Im getting 4 bars in windows 7, its showing good connectivity, but its constantly disconnecting, even when its stable, its running very slow. When im close to the router is works perfect. I design for a living and am constantly transferring files to clients. So this has become a problem, Im constantly having to unplug my laptop and walk over to the router to send/recieve large files. Any suggestion on what i can do? Could there be something wrong with the router or my laptop ?

Can A Netgear Wireless Usb Adapter Signal Read Off Of A Linksys Router Signal
I just bought a Netgear WNA3100 wireless usb adapter for my HP Win 7 64 bit laptop. I have been trying for 2 and half days to figure out why my speed is slow, why i don't have a good signal, and/ or if I do have a bit of a signal to my luck, why my signal comes and goes. I don't have internet at home at the moment because I am trying to save up to go to school. I am picking up a public business signal from a block away (which I have asked for permission to use), but I only am receiving not much of a signal with the Netgear usb wireless adapter.

Wireless Signal Loss
I have new Acer Aspire 5739G laptop and fresh Windows 7 on it.

The wireless card is Intel WiFi Link 5100.

The problem is that wireless works only in short distance with access point - max distance is about 5 meters.

In that distance everything works fine.

But if I go farther or to another room it disconnects.

With other laptops all works fine even on very large distance.

I tried such things (nothing helped):
* uninstall, reinstall or update drivers
* install newest drivers from Acer site
* install newest drivers from Intel site
* tested with xp & vista drivers
* on network connection properties unchecked all things except tcp/ip v4 protocol (microsoft networking,sharing, link layer topology,QoS, TCP/IP v6 ..)
* disabled homegroup
* on adapter properties changed signal frequencies (1,6,11),
* on adapter properties changed standard type to work with: 802.11 b or g
* on adapter properties changed signal to MAX, don't use power saving
* disabled Internet security, firewall
* Changed access point signal broadcasting with no encryption or wpa
* it disconnects from another access point the same way (problem with system not wifi AP)

Maybe something forgot to say, but there was few hours of testing and can't fix it .

Can Use A Router To Convert To A Wireless-b Signal?
I'm trying to get connected to wifi on my ds lite, but my university's wireless doesn't broadcast a wireless-B signal which is the only type a DS can connect to. Is it possible to use a router convert the school's wifi and broadcast a wireless B signal for myself?

Getting A Very Weak Wireless Signal From The Router That Is 2 Rooms And A Hallway Away (40 Ft.)
Was getting a very weak wireless signal from the router that is 2 rooms and a hallway away (40 ft.)... It was almost like dial-up used to be...Anyway, a friend of mine suggested getting Powerline Network Adapters, HowStuffWorks "How Power-line Networking Works"I spent the money for the kit, ($99 at Office Depot), and installed yesterday afternoon. Getting a great signal now. If you can't or prefer not to run ethernet cable, this is the next best thing...

Cannot Detect Wireless Signal / Dropped Moments After If Is Detected
I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. And an atheros AR5B95 wireless network adaptor.Two weeks ago I discovered rootkit 0access on my computer, and after much hassle, performed a factory restore to fix the situation. Since then my computer has been mostly unable to detect wireless connections. I say mostly because upon occassion it will see my wifi connection, but be unable to connect to it, and it will soon drop seeing the connection moments after anyway. I performed a hard reset of my modem with at&t customer service, and walked through every possibility that it could be a modem issue. This was further proven by an additional laptop having no issue with the wifi connection, and that my laptop is having this problem with every wifi connection. [code]

Can't Connect To Home Wireless Signal ("Limited Access") - Windows 7?

The new pc is running 64 bit Windows 7 (the others run XP) and has an Atheros AR5B93 Wireless Network Adapter. When I pan over the wireless icon in my taskbar, it says "Limited access" beside my home wifi signal.

To Boost Up The Ram Via Readyboost
The flyer that came with this month's PCA included a tip to utilise a blank USB flash drive for virtual memory. When I go to Properties/ReadyBoost on the USB drive, it says "This device cannot be used by ReadyBoost"Then it says "ReadyBoost is not enabled because the service responsible for ReadyBoost (Sysmain) has been turned off on this computer. An administrator can turn the Sysmain service back on"When I searched, including Microsoft website, there is no recognition of the term Sysmain.

No Microphone Boost In Windows 7?
First of all:I'm having a Creative Soundmaster Audigy 4 SE 7.1 soundcard and the (according to the Windows update manager) latest driver availabe.I recently installed Windows 7 because I always wanted to know how it was.Everything went fine, the Update Manager automatically installed all the drivers I needed, but now there's a problem with my audio settings.Since I've been switching over to Windows 7 people have told me that I'm very very quiet in Teamspeak or Skype, so I tried to activate the microphone boost in the audio settings.But when I open the settings of my microphone and click the "custom" tab, all I see is "Do not monitor".There's no microphone boost. I heard from some people they had the same problem under Windows Vista and solved it by switching to newer drivers, but alas, it seems I have the newest beta driver for Windows 7.

Is there any other way towards activating the boost or do I just have to wait until Creative releases a Windows 7 beta driver with microphone boost included?I also checked if the problem comes from my headset, but it's working fine under Windows XP with microphone boost enabled. The voice recognition experience

USB Dedicated To Ready Boost
On my HP G50-112NR Notebook, 32bit, I inserted a 16G Verbatim USB flash drive to learn about ReadyBoost. I clicked on "Dedicate this device to ReadyBoost," thinking that I could change my mind later and "undo" it. I can't!! The USB had a few files on it & Properties shows they are still there. Device Manager says the USB is working properly. But when I try to "Open" the drive, the resulting window says it's empty. I have tried clicking "Do not use. . ." but nothing happens. I want to Undo the ReadyBoost "dedication" & restore the USB to normal use. How do I do that? (Unless I receive some good advice, I'm going to Format the USB).

Using 74GB SSD For Ready Boost Efficient?
I have an 80GB of course 74GB after formatted to NTFS.

I have too much crap on my system to use it as my primary drive. I don't feel like fighting for disk space at the end.

Intel Turbo Boost Overclocking Not Working
I have an Acer Aspire 7745g laptop, 8gb ram, ati 5650m graphics card, and an i5 460M dual core with hyperthreading, clock speed 2.53 ghz and Windows 7 64 bit When playing games like BF3, I notice that the processor is close to 100%, usually between 90% and sometimes going to 100%. I was wondering why Intel Turbo boost never kicks in, it says with turbo boost my cpu can go up to 2.8 ghz, but it always stays at 2.53 whenever I check on the turbo boost monitor
