Hi,

Thanks for using the site to ask your question, I am Cris.

Can you tell me the make and model number of your current wireless router? Also about how far is the TV from your router?

hi cris


i live in spain my router was supplied by telefonica the main ph'oneline provider. as to the position of the router this is upstairs and my tv is downstairs,but the signal i receive on my laptop is ok

Expert:  Cris replied 4 years ago.
OK,

Wireless signal should be able to travel about 50 feet in distance. However that will reduce depending on the objects between the 2 devices that will weakend the signal.

Make sure that your wireless router has some open space if you have it laying on the floor. Try elevating it on top of a table and clearing anything that maybe around to open the signal up more.

If the signal is still to weak on your TV. Then you may want to add a singal extender to your home. I have provided a link for a very good device which I use and recommend to clients to extend the signal of WiFi in their homes.

Click here>>>Hawking Extender

The device comes with instructions and disc for installation. Very simple to setup.

Let me know if you any further questions BEFORE selecting a negative rating. I will answer your follow ups.
