Default NTL Broadband

Hi

My daughter attends University and lives with several others in rented
accomodation who are supposedly connected to NTL Broadband.
They each have their own PC's / Laptops with suitable network cards fitted.
However, there is a single router connected the the set top box in the
living room, but only one of the occupants receives a decent signal, the
other have a poor signal.
They have contacted both NTL / Netgear who are not too helpful to say the
least. The router is from Netgear, but on looking at NTL's website display
actiontec as suppliers of router.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

John

Default NTL Broadband

if you mean wireless signal.

can they not swap aerials or cards or WHY?

that might narrow the problem down.

try another channel, that may sort it.

TBH, this is certainly not an NTL problem, nor is it a netgear one either
really is it?

1)
move the wireless Router/AP to a more central location

and/or

2)
hardwire your daughters PC in her room to the router

Both solutions just need a suitably long CAT5 cable.
