I recently bought a Sitecom WL-176 Router. After a quick and easy install I started to get some major problems.
Around the Router I have no problem connecting to it and browsing the web. However if I would move 10 to 15 meters (30/50ft) away from the router I loose all connection and cannot establish it anymore.
Both my Neighbours have Wireless Routers, so this might be the problem, but how I solve this?
Also interesting: If I move it in front of the door opening I get a better connection than when I put it on the shelf (the distance is 30 cm/11 inches).
802.11a - 5 GHz frequency
802.11g - 2.4 GHz frequency
802.11n - 2.4 GHz frequency + 20 MHz(standard) and 40 MHz(wide) bands for better range and speed
***802.11n can also operate using 5 GHz frequency if you have a dual band router
***802.11n wide range and better speed can only be utilized if you use a matching N adapter
You may want to determine what else in your house is causing interference. Your landline phone's cordless system may work on 2.4. Your microwave when it is on may cause some interference. The may be some other piece of electrical equipment or possibly the way your building was constructed may be blocking signals. Or it might even be something in your computer system. If your neighbors' signals are strong enough ask if you can use their network to test your computer's connectivity.
