Hi everyone , i have one computer (Win 7 SP1 64 bit) in a back room using my ISP's providers modem with a ASUS RT N 10 router for wireless .
I have a tablet that gets the wireless signal only a room away but the signal is terrible , just can't seem to get a solid signal no matter what i do , i have moved the router as far as it would go closer to that location but still not happening.
I even tried a 802.11 b/g long range USB adapter by ALFA and no improvement , i know i must be doing something wrong but don't know what.
It is not possible to run cables or cords from one room to the next unfortunately , i am thinking i may need a new router that has more power or has better range because i have no answers.
The main computer is a Dell with an Intel i5 processor with plenty of ram and hard drive space (not that it matters) and it's only a few months old , the Router however is at least 6 or 7 years old.
The location of this computer is a third floor condo and there are plenty of others who have wireless so maybe we are all hogging the same channel i don't know .
I researched the Asus RT N 10 and it appears there is no way to switch channels.
I would really appreciate any help
