Wireless network out of range
I'm trying to connect to my new wireless router but it keeps saying i'm out of range, even though i have 100% signal strength. Its an asus rt n1 3u router and i am using and acer aspire laptop. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Disconnect from the connection and delete the wireless profile.

Then reboot the machine and try connecting to the wireless connection after you've rebooted the router and modem.

The router says you're out of range?

What OS on the laptop?

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver. If it is an internal adapter the driver should be from Acer's web site.

Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router. Then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

Have your network unsecured until you get a successful wireless connection.

Yeah my driver was one of the first things I've checked, and the router is new, just installed last week. My sister has no problem connecting, but both me and my dad can't seem to connect.

Have you removed all wireless network profiles and tried a fresh connection?
