Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Advent 5431 Wi-Fi only good for 10 metres from Router.

\015 Laptop brought 2nd hand. Still under warranty. Store says to uninstall WiFi driver. Done this and problem still exists...\015\012\015\012If I use laptop by router it is five bar strength. lifting laptop away from router that drops to four bar strength. If i take it away to another room (10metres) it goes to 3 bars straight away and then drops out...\015\012\015\012Store advises a ''full destructive recovery'' and then re-load from inbuilt restore..... It does not have recovery discs?.\015\012\015\012Not tempted by that at this stage as it didn't work when re-loading Wi-Fi drivers before?.\015\012\015\012 Can anyone offer a constructive idea on how to get better Wi_Fi out of this Advent 5431?.\015\012\015\012Thanking Everyone out there who takes time to help people like me who have no idea!!!.\015\012\015\012Paul.\015

Answers :

You have to change your channelk type in your wi fi router.
For that access your router with following link

http://192.168.1.1 or
http://192.168.0.1

if you have belkin router
http://192.168.2.1

type user name as "admin" and password is "admin" or blank or "password"

then go to wi fi ->advanced setup chang channel type 4 ,6 ,11
change chanel type 1 by 1 and check signal strength.
everyt time save settings and restart both computer and router after save settings.
