    weak wifi signal

    My transformer worked okay the first month I had it. Lately, I can't get it to pick up on wifi sources unless I'm right next to them.

    I can still get wifi to work, but I have to be basically in the same room as the router. If I place my transformer within 2 feet of the router, I get a weak signal, but it will connect. If I go to the next room, where my laptop still gets a strong signal, it won't pick up the wifi router at all. I travelled, and noticed the same thing in the hotel I was recently in. If I turn on the wifi router option on my phone, same deal...it shows a weak signal when the phone is placed directly next to the tablet, while my laptop can pick it up from the next room and show a strong signal.

    Any ideas on how to approach this?

    I had the same problem

    I have the same problem that jehrico76

    The wifi signal in my transformer is weak too, while my computer gets a good signal, my transformer doesn't connect to the same signal in the same place.

    I think this is a problem, because a tablet without internet is not usefull.

    Shanis,

    Welcome to the forum. I am curious what channel your wifi signal is on? You can use WiFi Analyzer from the market to check the channel easilly. I have weakened signals on channel 11, but 1-10 work great. Also, what type of security is on your wireless, WEP or WPA?

    I am having the EXACT same problem. I had it for a month as well. Worked great and then lots of problems. I shouldn't have to buy a wifi extender because my device is sitting beside the damn router.

    But if we have to mess around, I am going to try this: Ez-12

    I have actually turned off security, and this seems to be working a little better.

    Furthermore, the device also has a lot of troubles obtaining IP Address even when it makes a connection with WEP enabled.

    Location location location, that has a lot to do with how the signal gets to the device. My WiFi router in in my basement on the right side rear of the house. When I drive into my driveway at the front left, one level up, I no sooner get into the driveway and I'm getting mail. Several walls and at least 100' (straight-line) away. I also get a good signal anywhere on the second floor, (2 levels up).

    I have no problem at all with the signal. I'm using a Netgear WNDR 3700 router. It's not cheap but it does a lot for the money.

    I am having issues with low wifi at home, where I had full wifi previously. I purchased the TF to use when traveling to conferences, classes etc. The last conference I attended, everyone in the room was connected but me. I updated from installed browser to DolphinHD, as I have read in forums that this might help. Heading to download wifi analyzer next.
    I am traveling again and would appreciate any suggestions to improve signal access that does not have to do with improving the access point (which I will have no control over). I love the TF and would hate to give it up, but if I can't connect, it's not worth keeping. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Having same problems noted above - weak wifi signal when my other devices are fine. Have experienced same at home office, hotel. Have had device for 2 wks - love the form-factor - full keyboard, expandability, etc... but will return if TF cannot stay connected (or detect networks) my other devices find/connect to easily. Have used wifi analyzer - use strong netgear router - no issues with channels. Look forward to learning about any shared experiences so I can resolve this make or break issue. Thx

    My husband and I tried to set up two different repeaters yesterday as signal on the far side of the house is weak. Hours on tech support got the thing working and full bars, but the Transformer, the Vista laptop, and the Android phones don't want to have anything to do with it. It scans, tries to authenticate and gives up. There must be some setting to tweak somewhere, but we're just not getting it right. Perhaps this WiFi analyzer will help.
