    Well 5 out of 5 bars means the reception that you are getting is really darn good. 4 out of 5 is serviceable and I find that anything below 3 is just really crummy reception.

    It's kind of like how on a cell phone you have the bars of reception to show how well your cell phone is receiving a signal I guess. Sorry I'm really tired tonight lol.

      You don't get "reception" from cables so to speak.

          Do you have a wireless card in your computer?

            I highly doubt it, all of my internet reception is done through my dad's computer and I basically share off of it. His computer is like 8-9 years old lol. I might have to get one for his computer.

                Sorry haha I'm really tired tonight not thinking clearly at all.

                I'll figure it out, I always do. I'll get back to this thread though.

                  Jake is confused because you are talking about "bars" which indicate some type of wireless. If each computer is plugged into the router via cable, there should be no wireless involved.

                    Standard RJ-45 cables lose strength too. Also, you can get "bars" even if you're wired. Depends on the OS and installed software.

                    Wireless: Modem/router -- CABLE -- Router/switch/hub/etc -- NO CABLE -- PC
                    Wireless: Modem/router -- NO CABLE -- PC
                    Wired: Modem/router -- CABLE -- Router/switch/hub/etc -- CABLE -- PC
                    Wired: Modem/router -- CABLE -- PC

                    When connected, please do this:

                    Windows XP: Start > Run.. > Type "cmd" without " > Press enter
                    Windows Vista/7: Start > Search programs and files > Type "cmd" without " > Press enter
                    Windows 8: Search Apps > Type "cmd" without " > Press enter

                    In the dos prompt window, type "ipconfig /all" without " > Press enter

                    Maximize the dos prompt window, take a screendump, upload and pm. I advise against posting it on the forums for everyone to see.

                      Which OS gives you bars for wired connection?

                        If you're on a bridge connection you will get bars even if your own computer is wired to another computer (wireless). To be precise, you will get both - bars and no bars. Depends on where you're looking.

                        // edit

                        Older OS (NT/XP/ME). Haven't tested bridge connections and such in newer OS.
