forgot to mention, It fumes me when I see other neighbouring wireless connections show 5 bars and my own shows 1 or 2 ( My router is secured on WEP. Please help!!
I have Netgear Wireless router on comcast internet connection for last 5 years and I never had any problem until recently. I live in a one bedroom apartment and I have my router in bedroom and the connection in bedroom is satisfactory (although never get full bars). In bedroom I usually get 3-4 bars but as soon as I go to living room, the bars drop from 4 to 1 and sometime the connection is dropped altogether and the my laptop starts connecting again. I have 2 laptops and 3 IPhones in the house that can connect to the wireless router but I know my IPhones are not right now connecting to wireless. I am worried about the laptop internet connection. It was working great till last month. But now everyday I get trouble connecting to it from my living room. Is the router too old now?? Do I need to go for a new one?? If so, which is the best??
