    Question Wi-fi boost or something?

    Hi I have an iphone running on 1.0.2 firmware, I have a wifi router in my house (D-Link DI-624) I have to stay in the same room as the D-Link to get any connection to my wifi, I think this is rather strange, what may be causing this? Any solution would be much helpfull!

    Is there any settings in the router I may have to change to increase the signals perhaps?

    You can extend the range with a longer Wifi cable.

    Longer wifi cable? I was in the belief that the hole point with wifi was not to drag around connecting cables and stuff I just dont understand the point with a wifi if you need to be in the same room (in my own house) as the router is located.

    There may be some settings on your router on how much power to use for the WIFI, although on most routers it's on 100% by default and there's no way to change it. Have a look around.

    How are other WIFI enabled devices working? Do they get the same poor signal? If so then chances are you've positioned your router in a really poor place, or it's just a rubbish router altogether.

    Take a regular cat5 cable and rap it a few times around your iPhone.

    dlink is crap. Your router is the problem. Either try something like Pretendo said or another wifi antenna maybe. But with this router it won't be a lot of fun.

    Wrap a cat5 cable around my iphone

    Do you have some good advice perhaps on what type of router I should buy to get optimal signals?

    Perhaps Linksys "WRT350N Wireless N Gigabit Router" is a good buy?

    What a crazy way to improve signal strenght! :p

    In fact, you can improve the WiFi range puting any other electrical connections and devices away from your access point, also... try to place it at an elevated place

    I think the Wi-Fi Signal strength on the Iphone is buggy, but that is a separate matter.

    The wifi often shows a stronger signal than it actually has...
