Windows 7: Roaming Aggressiveness

Roaming Aggressiveness

im posting a new thread due to the fact that ALL other instructions to change this isnt correct for me.

All the instructions I've found so far is the following:

Device Manager/Network Adapters/Wifi adapter properties/Advanced Tab

I've been told that not only will i have the option to change the roaming aggressiveness, but also "Mixed more protection", "Power Management", Throughput Enhancement", and "Transmit Power". Beyond Tecknology: 5 ways to speed up and improve your wireless network for free

Unfortunately, this is not the case for me. The following is all that is on my Advanced Tab.

Property: Adhoc support 802.11n, Multimedia/Gaming Environment, and Radio On/Off

I am on a Compaq Presario CQ56 with Windows 7 Home Premium x 64 working on a D-Link DIR-615.

I want to find a way to change AT LEAST the roaming aggressiveness (preferably all the options listed on above link).

any help is appreciated,
thank you

Unfortunately the options available in the advanced dialogue for the wireless adaptor are wholly dependent on the actual adaptor fitted, (or more precisely, the drivers loaded for the adaptor fitted).

Unless you can find a set of drivers that provide access to these settings I'm afraid that you cannot change them, I think you will find that adaptors and drivers for consumer targeted devices are always less adjustable than those aimed at the professional market

Thank you, that helps a bunch. Will make it easier to siphon through all the suggestions to speed up wifi.

Do you think you could provide me with some tips of increasing the speed of wifi? lol or any tips on fixing my annoying problem of having to reset my router and reinstall it with new user/pass everytime i want to use the 192.168.0.1 (D-Link DIR-615).... for some odd reason, ive had to do that 4 times now cuz every time, it rejects my correct password. lol.

Only thing I can suggest is change all the defaults on your router

only reason I suggest this is if someone nearby has the same model and also runs at default you may actually connect to their router accidentally

You should be able to change the IP address range from 192.168.0.1... to some other number for x (192.168.x.1),

change the SSID

if possible change the broadcast channel to something in the middle of the range (5,6,7), as most default to either the top or bottom of the range, (1 or 13 UK 1or 12 US), which will help to reduce interference.

Move the router away from any cordless phones.

Set the router to only broadcast G rather than B/G unless you have any older B type devices

yea named the SSID to something easy to identify as my own. funny u should mention cordless phones... i have 2 separate ones sitting within 4 inches of the router, one on each side (small shelf lol) i wasnt aware that would be an issue, tho i can see why it would be now that i think about it.

would me having a wireless N router change ur suggestion about switching from B/G to just G? dunno if that has anything to do with it.

The phone situation is variable at best they should be on a separate frequency band and fully shielded, but do not always meet the ideal

With the B/G/N question, only broadcast what you have devices for - if you only have N devices broadcasting the B & G components will be an overhead, that is wasted. similarly if you have only G type devices I would not bother to broadcast the N as this would not be used.

Also as you have an N router, check with the manufacturer regularly for firmware updates, the N standard was only fully ratified relatively recently and manufacturers are not always as quick as we would like in updating to the latest standards
