    Wifi problems - distance?

      Does anyone have problems with the NC as they get farther away from their wireless router?  I have a small condo, but I seem to lose connections at one end of it... can't be more than 50 feet

       

      Thank you

          Mine works wwell anywhere in my house. The thing abot wifi is that there are sev things that affect signal. You can google wifi interference anb learn a lot. I have seen wifi sig deteriate when device is in the next room and improve moving farther away.

              I can use mine on my patio and down at the river about 300 feet away from my router. I also pick up my neighbors routers four houses away, about 1000 feet. Maybe it is the construction material of your condo? I live in a frame house with lots of windows.

                This is true.  I experienced this with a laptop that would not connect reliably when in the room with the router.  Moved it away from it into a back bedroom and now it connects anywhere in range with no trouble.

                 

                I also have tested my NC when riding in a car (as a passenger), even near where I live in the country and it sees all kinds of wifi all over the place.  In the city it picked up the usual coffee houses, libraries, work places, and all sorts of stores.  In more rural areas, it was still picking up a lot of signals.
