Right, I had a wireless router worked ok but dropped signal once a month, which seems to be the norm with routers I buy. The other day the router just stopped working, after searching forums seems that was normal for that type of router, which just sums my luck up, so I spent a bit of time looking into routers and prices to find a good one. I found a router and waited for the sales and got it cheap now I have set it up looks like a good router, just it gives me real low speed and connection right next to the router the speed is 1-2 bar max, on the router it has a speed meter which shows me the speed which the router gives out and that only ever goes up to 2 bar max then drops straight back to 1. I can pick my wireless signal up three houses down the road and it is still 1-2 bar which makes me think I haven’t got it in the wrong position or anything, seems to be working fine just its receiving a very bad signal but, I don’t know where to start my knowledge of these things are very minimal, the router is a belkin N+ F5D8235 V200UK. Another problem I am having on the laptop is I cannot access any sites that require a log in, facebook, hotmail, Halifax, etc. I also can’t access the online technical support which these devices offer, so am pretty stuck. Any help would be a big plus and I thank you in advance. Also if you require any more information just ask and I'll reply as quick as possible. Thanks.
