Belkin and linksys are great.
Netgear isn't bad.

What speed is your router?
EG 802.11G or 'wireless G'

Get this. It comes with a free h-gain antenna which can help you a lot.

Here ya go.


Installation is self-explanatory.

A hi-gain antenna is basically an antenna that has much better reception than a normal one.

we have one of those...
what do you think the problem is, is it broken or something?

also, i was thinking about getting this router http://www.dlink.com/solutionFlashes/?type=1
what does it mean when it says on the specifications that it requires high bandwith? does that have to do with the internet service?

If you already have a router, then why on earth would you need that?

What you need is a receiver. Go with the one I posted.

EDIT: I'm not really sure how they could break, but I'd get a new one, and you have to have one on every phone, not just the modem.

oh, that might be the problem,
just to let you know, i just check the frequencies of the phone and the router, the router is 2.4 and the phone is 5.8 so that cant be the problem

the router we have right now is really slow and is horrible with online gaming, so i was thinking about getting another one.
what company would you suggest, at the moment we have dlink.

what does it mean if it says a router needs high bandwith, does that have to do with the internet provider?

It has to do with the speed of output allowed by the modem.

The 2.4 and 5.8 are the wireless frequencies. It makes no difference on whether you need filters or not.

EDIT: Is it much faster on the wired computer?

If so then go with the $15 one I posted or else a linksys or belkin.

alright so it turns out that there wasnt a filter on the other phone and putting one on seemed to fix it. i think, in stead of getting a wireless card i'm going to bring the modem router into my room and connect the computer it was originally connected to wirelessly, (it already has one built in) and use the money i save to get a new router.
i want the router to be good for online games, be wireless and wired, be up to 1000 mps wired, and be good for downloading large files and streaming videos. any recommendations?
