Greetings to all,
I need some help from you wireless experts out there! Just installed my first wireless router, a Netgear Rangemax WPN824. Unfortunately, the range "maxes out" at about ten feet! I am obviously doing something wrong, or I am missing some piece of equipment.
I'm running a 1.2ghz iBook with Airport, and my Internet isp is Direcway if that makes a difference. Any ideas as to why my range would be so terribly limited with this supposedly high powered router? I've already covered all the basic stuff like having it located away from interference, metaql, etc. It's on my wooden desk right above my computer, and if I walk 10 feet out of the room the connectin is gone. My son's Dell PC receives signal upstairs several rooms away, but the signal is weak there too.
Please give me some help... I can't stand the thought of talking to their technical support group again!
