Increasing the Belkin router signal strength is possible in many ways. Proceed with the quick steps mentioned below to increase the signal strength of your Belkin router.
Method 1: Changing the router’s position.
Turn off your Belkin router and the connected computer.
Unplug the cables connected between them.
Position the Belkin router near the computer and connect them using the necessary cables.
Turn on the devices and make sure that you have used standard Ethernet cables.
If you are connecting the PC wirelessly to the router, ensure that there are no obstacles in-between.
This will increase the Wi-Fi signal strength.
Method 2: Changing the Wi-Fi channel on the router’s settings page
Connect your PC to the Belkin router and ensure that you have connected them appropriately.
If you are using a Windows computer, click the Start menu available at the bottom-left corner of the screen and type ‘cmd’ in the search panel. This is the initial step to increase Belkin router signal strength.
Hit the Enter key and give a right-click on the Command Prompt app from the search result.
Select the Run as administrator option to run the Command Prompt app as an administrator.
Type ‘ipconfig’ in the Command Prompt window and hit the Enter key.
Navigate to the Default Gateway section and note down the IP address of your Belkin router.
Open the default browser and enter the router’s IP address in the URL field.
Press the Enter key to open the Belkin router’s login portal.
Enter the correct username and password and click the Submit or Log In button.
In the router’s settings page, click the Wireless tab from the left-side panel and select Channel and SSID.
If prompted, enter the administrative credentials and click the Wireless mode drop-down menu.
