Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. First, have you made sure it is trying to connect to your WiFi and not one that may be close by?

Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

Try unplugging your router for about one minute then plug it back in to see if that will reconnect you with a stronger signal.

no still out of range
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

Did you setup the router? If so, you may want to try changing the wireless channel. You may be getting interference from a nearby WiFi?
