    Re: Sky wireless keeps disconnecting

    scans done, completely clear, just need to reset pc for microsoft security now, i'm pretty much convinced it's to do with range, i literally moved it 3 inches and it hasn't had bad connection since, i'm on the 3rd floor of my house and the modem is on the ground floor so it makes sense i guess, anything else i could get to maximise range that's affordable?

    Scan finished, it's completely clear, i'm convinced it's the range that's the issue now, i literally moved it 3 inches and it's been fine for a while now, it's in an awkward spot though and i'd much rather increase the range, any way aside from an ariel i could go about this?

    Zelaos,

    It does indicate that way. On what you've told us.

    I can only think of a small number of options myself.

    That checking the manufacturers website to see if with ariel it would be enough to increase range.
    Is there a booster available for that model that would increase range sufficiently?

    You are, in a way, getting good range now on the third floor, however that does not solve your immediate problem.

    I'm afraid personally i'm out of fresh ideas.
    On the other hand members of the forum, more experienced than I may be able to come up with other
    solutions!!

    Also, you must keep up with the free security checks and regular scans to help keep your computer clear from virus.
