Question by my my metrocard: Do wireless internet amplified antennas really work?
I want to rearrange my apartment and put my computer in the living room. Trouble is, we only pick up wireless internet in the corner of the back bedroom. What kind of device would I need to stretch that signal the 15 feet to the living room? Thanks!!!!

Answer by Ceffy
you need a lnksys wireless-g range expander to bounce of the signal from your wireless router.

    Works great… unless you use other 2.4Ghz devices, June 8, 2003

    I was looking for a wireless way to send the video & audio from my living room to a bedroom, so that I could watch movies coming from my cable box & DVD player. Having a remote control feature, I chose this model.
    I can tell you that the picture was very sharp, and the sound was great. However, I also have a Panasonic KX-TG2730 expandable cordless phone system, which operates on the same 2.4Ghz frequency. With the phone’s base plugged in, it produced crackling sound and wide dark bands that scrolled vertically along the picture. Unplug the phone system, and it was flawless. I had read other mixed reviews on interference caused by 2.4Ghz phone systems, but I can tell you that the Panasonic system I mentioned did cause interference for me. I tried moving the phone base, and tried all four channels on the Leapfrog Wavemaster 30 video transmitter, but nothing helped.

    In short, if you don’t use any other wireless devices using the 2.4Ghz frequency (cordless phones, wireless network devices), the Terk Leapfrog Wavemaster 30 delivers a great picture with equally great sound. If you do use other wireless devices on the same frequency, I would look for a video transmitter that uses a different frequency (or a wired one), or be prepared to return it to the store.

    This review is from: Terk Technologies Leapfrog LF-30S Wireless 2.4 GHz A/V Distribution System (Electronics)

    I used this product for several weeks to transmit satellite TV from our living room to a computer upstairs (with windows media center). It was easy to set up and the remote worked great; however, if you are considering buying this product, you should be aware of some things:

    1. The price of this product is dropping quickly because it’s inferior to RF links that run on the 5.8 GHz spectrum. I strongly recommend considering spending the extra money on a product that runs on this less-crowded spectrum. Specifically, be prepared to run into trouble if you are running a wireless 802.11b or 802.11g network (which uses the same frequency), 2.4ghz cordless phones, and microwaves. If you live in a condo/apt complex close to other neighbors, you will want to be sure they are not using products on this spectrum. Also, the 5.8ghz products have a range roughly 4 times as far as this and other 2.4ghz products.

    2. If you decide to go with this product, I recommend buying an extra long (6-12 feet) audio video cable so you can move the receiver around more flexibly. Be prepared to move it around to many areas and to spend time experimenting. It took me several hours before discovering a receiver/transmitter position and channel that worked reasonably well.

    Works great, even with WiFi (instructions here), May 17, 2009

    This review is from: Terk Technologies Leapfrog LF-30S Wireless 2.4 GHz A/V Distribution System (Electronics)

    The comments on the Terk LF-30S seem to run in two distinct camps. It either works great, or won’t work at all, usually due to WiFi interference. You can beat the WiFi problem, and I’ll show you how.

    First, my experience with the Terk has been positive. It was easy to set up and everything you need is included. We use it to send a signal from our Comcast DVR (hooked to our main big-screen TV) to a secondary TV in our kitchen / family room area. We use a secondary output on the DVR to hook up the Terk sending unit. The signal is sent between two floors of my house. I did a little measuring on the two floors, and with a little basic geometry, was able to aim the antennas acceptably on the first pass. Its not like a satellite antenna – aim in the correct general direction will be fine. It is a wood frame house. Your mileage may vary.

    The IR extender function works well. The IR emitter (at the sending unit to control the source Comcast DVR) is quite strong. I never figured out exactly where the IR “eye” is on the Comcast box, but no matter, the IR emitter works as long as I put it anywhere on the right side of the box. As with the antenna aim, close is good enough. The IR commands miss about 5% of the time, but I can’t be sure that isn’t just my poor aim with the remote (the Terk receiver is not right next to the TV).

    Picture and sound quality are excellent, as many others have noted. I was surprised. I am also impressed by the Terk’s ability to handle wide-screen content coming off the cable box. It appropriately displays that content with black bars top and bottom on the secondary TV, which is the old style 4:3, even though the Comcast DVR is set up for a 16:9 widescreen format.

    Our large dog likes to sit in the signal path, which sometimes creates both audio and visual static. Better antenna aim helped, but usually we just ask her to move. Static also occurs when using a Bluetooth headset close to the receiver, which also uses the 2.4 GHz band, but this is an infrequent occurrence. But you are probably reading this to find out how to handle static from WiFi and other 2.4 GHz devices. So here’s the story on how to handle this problem.

    First, some people have panned the product because its not 5.8 GHz. That is silly. You need to assess what 2.4 and 5.8 GHz products are already in your home, and then decide which frequency spectrum is less crowded given what you already have.

    Phones: In our home, we got rid of our old 2.4 GHz phones because they interfered with the WiFi. Most modern wireless phones automatically try to chose the clearest channel – you can’t restrict this operation, and the problem is worse if you use a phone with Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) security. So we opted for 5.8 GHz phones. If you have 2.4 GHz phones, the Terk may not work well for you depending on the proximity of phones, base units, etc. to the receiving unit. (And if you have 5.8 GHz phones, then a 5.8 GHz version of the this product will have similar problems you won’t be able to control. Note that Terk doesn’t make a 5.8 GHz version, but other manufacturers do.)

    Microwave ovens: These interfere in the 2.4 GHz spectrum, and make a mess of the Terk product if the receiving unit is in the same room as the microwave. The microwave also made a mess of the our old 2.4 GHz phones, another reason we switched to 5.8 GHz phones. When we use the microwave, we turn of the TV momentarily due to extreme static, but remember that our microwave is close to the Terk receiver. If you want to cook and watch TV at the same time, the Terk may not be for you. Find a 5.8 GHz product instead.

    WiFi: Here is how to make the Terk work with your WiFi. First, understand your WiFi. Although there are 11 WiFi channels in the USA (more in Europe), these channels overlap. There are only 3 non-overlapping channels: 1, 6, and 11. You should choose one of these channels, based on what is in use by your neighbors. (Using only these 3 channels is also more polite to the neighbors too as it leaves more room for them.) Now, knowing what channel your WiFi uses, choose a Terk channel that won’t interfere as follows:

    Terk channel A: Interferes with WiFi 1, OK with 6 and 11.
    Terk channel B: Interferes with WiFi 6, OK with 1 and 11.
    Terk channel C: Interferes with WiFi 6 and 11, OK with 1.
    Terk channel D: Interferes with WiFi 11, OK with 1 and 6.

    The information above was gleaned from the Terk manual and a website that listed the frequencies used by WiFi channels. (Google it or try […])

    This should get you where you need to go. The Terk doesn’t reject signals as well as I would like. When using my laptop at the kitchen table, it sometimes causes interference with the Terk receiver in the same room, even though I’m not using an interfering channel. However, simply changing the…
