Default !!!Help me please!!!

I recently set-up a wireless connection in my house and although im not seeing any significant drop in speed i have noticed that the signal strength is apparently Very weak - Weak, and it's only telling me a speed of 11mbps when its a network of up to 108mbps, anyone know how i can improve strength??


Im using BT voyager 2091 & Belking wirelles G+ usb adaptor


Thanks a lot in advance

Tommy

Are you using it for a network, or just internet?? If you're just using it for internet, your speeds will never get that high anyway, so don't worry about it.

You can buy a WiFi repeater if you want though. Something like this will do the job:

You might have a 802.11b wireless card which has speed up to 11mpbs (max). You should to see what you have. Might be 802.11 B,G,N etc...

I don't think in that case it would be showing the signal strength as weak though...

i have the voyager 2091. the signal is ok, but dont push it too far, as for 108mb/s it can only go upto 54mb/s and its not the routers fault for the slow speed, its the adapters. i also have a belkin g adapter and if i have 1 or 2 bars of signal i get 1,2,11, or 24mb/s max. it sucks
