Move the Dell laptop closer to the wireless router, or add a wireless repeater to your network. The closer the laptop is to the source of the wireless signal, the stronger the signal on the laptop will be. The wireless repeater increases the strength of the wireless signal, so it is as if you had moved your laptop closer.
Move the wireless router to a central location away from walls and floors and away from possible signal obstructions. Walls and floors can weaken signals. Metal cabinets, cordless phones and microwaves can also cause signal disruptions.
Change the antenna on your wireless router to one that has a greater and more focused output. This type of antenna is called a high-gain antenna.
Adjust the router settings. Access the router's browser-based utility using the instructions in the router's user guide. Change the wireless channel and upgrade the router's firmware if possible.
