Paige seriously does your computer work better when your son is off xbox live? Have him cut it off and see if it works better. Could be your router

Then i would go with the previously stated repeater to amplify your signal.

Festus seems to know his shite.

We had a line run to each room before moving more to wifi.

A computer friend put an additional router on another computer in the back end of the house and connect to whichever one we're closest to.

Put it back in a location good for you and get a powerline internet adapter for his room.

Yep, that's it. Some people have reported that a hard reset helped them tremendously. Have you done that? You press the power (top) button and your home button (round) at the same time and hold them down until your phone turns off and back on again. Do that.

re: How can I increase my wifi signal?


That's one of many ways to help your signal/range. It may or may not help your iPhone -- probably not if it's a software issue with the phone not syncing well with a router/gateway/etc. In fact, I've heard that it can help to change your router's encryption from WPA to WEP. That's a shitty fix, though, when it's the phone's fault.

A lot of people on other forums complaining of the same issue ultimately had their phones replaced by Apple.

I would also take Hulk's advice of asking your ISP to up the power on your gateway as well. If they can do that, it would give you a good indication of whether a signal booster of any sort will help or not.

I have the same problem but I think it is the techshield in the roof. I can see my neighbors wifi but not mine and they are a lot further away than my router. Who the hell knows! That cutout actually helped but I ran more cat5 and added a second router on the other side of the house.

Depending on how old your current router is, you may want to look into upgrading to an entirely new unit.
