how do i get more range for my blackberry on my wireless network

By donhammer1 ·
I have a blackberry curve 9300 and I am using a cisco valet router to help with cell reception in a mobile home. How can I get more signal strength at the far end of the house without wiring another router at the end of the house. I have looked at other post and people talked about a wireless access point. what and how would i install this type of a device, and is it really wireless (not connected to a router or anything else).

You need to use a Range Extender

As you are currently using Cisco this is from their Line up.

Of course things like the construction of the Home come into play here as well as distance so there are no easy answers that are universal. All answers to questions like this need to be done on a case by case basis so that the correct solution is achieved for the user.

One thing to be aware of with using a range extender is that you'll effectively halve your throughput. That said, for a smartphone this probably isn't an issue.

So, you are saying that the router is all the way at one end? You can either move it towad the center of the house, or fold a piece of cardstock into an L or V sort of shape and stick it behind the antenna as a reflector.

Might also be worth trying different channels and mounting the router higher if possible.
