Hi, I have a wireless router which is a Netgear WNR2000. I am using it in a large house with thick walls and am getting poor or zero reception in some parts of the house. Any suggestions as to how I could increase the range? Many thanks

Best bet is probably Homeplugs (assuming all floors are on the same ring main).click here

I had a similar problem last year with little or no wifi signal, continual drop-offs, in certain parts of the house, and purchased a devolo wifi extender kit.

One end plugs into mains skt upstairs (in my particular case) near the main desktop which is hard wired to the router (they provide a very long cable, which is useful), and the other end (with an aerial) plugs into a mains skt anywhere else in the house. It's superb, works very well, although a bit pricey (c.£125). Google devolo wifi extender.

this is at amazon click here but u could do a more thorough search. I suspect it will be the starter kit which u will need. Very easy to set up. My wife did ours and she has no tech ability at all!

what adapter has the pc got that you are trying to connect with?the wireless n router that i was using would only connect at a higher speed on channel 6 or 11.whether that would give you a better reception i don't know but is worth a try.is the adapter in your computer a wireless n adapter?
