With the Advancement in technology , lot of people have switched to WiFi instead of using Wired connections . But , one of the major problem With WiFi is that WiFi signals tends to Fluctuate and many users complain that there signals are so weak that they are hardly able to access the internet .
One of the basic reason for Weak signals is that Signals tend to get weak as one moves away from from the router. Most of the people complain that their laptops,computers or smartphones get negligible WiFi signals when they go to other rooms. Experienced such problems , Well No Worries !!
Getting Rid of the interference from other Appliances!!
You may be thinking that other routers are the only thing that can cause interference to your Signal . But that is not always the case . The Cordless phones,microwaves and other appliances can fiddle with your signal as well! Buying a dual band router can help with this, but you can also buy cordless phones on other bands too. If you don’t want to buy a new hardware, then you can always try moving your router further away from the interfering appliances!
Improve your WiFi signals through drinking cans!!
Fortunately for those who are curious about these questions, there is a very simple and practical trick that can increase the WiFi signal with a can of beer, soda or a drink that comes in a similar package! . To do this, we only need an empty can (plastic), knife,scissors and duct tape. The process is as simple as you can see in the above image.
- Just take an empty can, take a Scissor and Cut it in the shape as shown in the above picture.
- Now Place the Can Behind the antenna of your Modem so that it captures the signals and wont let the signals go pass.
- This Technique works like a charm and you will feel the difference. After performing this trick you will see Strong Signals and also Signals reaching you somewhat even if you are far away from the Modem.
Finding the Right Wireless Channel …
If you have neighbours(you’ll surely have some unless you live on a deserted island :P) , their modems/routers may be interfering with yours and causing your Wifi signal to degrade.Wireless routers can operate on a number of different channels and you want yours on a channel with as little interference as possible.Use a tool like WiFi Stumbler or WiFi Analyser to find the perfect channel in your house.
Understanding WiFi standards in order to increase the reception and signal of your WiFi !!
Your wireless broadband will work only as fast as the slowest part of the chain – the signal you receive down the line depends on the quality of the line and the service you pay for. Beyond upgrading or moving house the things you can control are your router and your laptop, PC or tablet.
If you’re buying a new laptop, make sure it supports 802.11n or even 802.11ac wireless. the 802.11n standard has various options, with headline speeds up to 600Mbps. The newly arrived 802.11ac boasts headline figures up to 1.3Gbps. But few routers are able to take advantage of this at this stage. Enthusiasts should get the latest standard, but for now 802.11n is a good start.
