How to boost Wi-Fi signal

A wireless network is convenient because it allows one device to cover a certain area with a Wi-Fi signal, but it is by no means an ideal solution. Often in such situations there are so-called. blind spots to which the signal does not reach for some reason. These can be parts of the room behind a few thick walls, a space on the floor where a wireless router is not installed, and similar things. The simplest solution is to place the wireless router or modem at a central point in space, but even then it is not possible to always cover all the "holes" in signal reception. Fortunately, there are ways to amplify the signal for free, or with a small investment, enough to provide normal Internet access from every corner.

The first, free way, is to place a conical barrier covered with aluminum foil on one side of the router antenna. Although this seems ridiculous, in practice it works, because the signals are reflected from the aluminum and directed in a certain direction. The disadvantage is that the signal weakens in the direction behind the aluminum foil.

If you want to amplify the signal in all directions, there are two solutions. The first is to place the antenna upright if you are not. They are designed to propagate the signal perpendicular to the antenna axis (at an angle of 75 to 105 degrees). If the antenna is placed horizontally, the signal will spread vertically (on the floors), and in case it is placed vertically, the signal will spread horizontally.

Another solution is to purchase an external Wi-Fi antenna. Such antennas do not cost much (from 10 to 20 euros), but they can effectively increase the signal range. You can install an external antenna if the original antenna on your router is not fixed to the chassis, or if it can be unscrewed. Simply replace the antenna and the signal will be amplified. The reason is that standard antennas on routers usually have a gain of up to 3 dBm, while external antennas that can be purchased on our market have a gain of 5 to 9 dBm. You won't amplify the signal exactly two or three times, but you will certainly get enough amplification to get a stable and solidly strong wireless signal.

An even more efficient, albeit slightly more expensive way is to purchase a Wi-Fi repeater. Their purpose is to take the signal from the router and to repeat and amplify it, thus effectively increasing its rank. This solution is especially effective in houses that have multiple floors, where the router is placed on one floor, and Wi-Fi repeaters on all the others. Unlike the previous methods, this is not a plug-and-play solution, because it requires configuring the repeater, but you don't have to worry. It is a simple enough operation that (almost) anyone can perform it. Such devices cost from 25 to 70 euros.

Of course, you need to protect your internet Wi-Fi network with a password, so that you are not in a situation where someone is connected to your Internet and thus slow down your internet speed.

If you have problems with the Wi-Fi signal, try some of these tips. I am sure that at least one of the mentioned ways will amplify the signal in your home enough, that you can use it in every corner, even in the farthest corner.

After these tips, I want you to use your internet connection to relax with some interesting movie or some nice music.

Some great tips, unfortunately, I don't think my wifi signal is the problem here after reading your article. I did learn something new with the aluminum idea, however!

This is so great! These tips are so good. There is solution also with aluminum can from Coca Cola, for example and wrap around antenna.. Protection of password is very important especially in the buildings. I use wifi adapter with usb connector for my PC and it has very good flow and high gain ability.. Thank you so much for this article, it's very useful!

This is really great! I will try some of those, and they seem very good to me. I will definitely try those in my home, with my wi fi. I sometimes have problems with very slow wi fi and that is annoying, sometimes, when I need it the most it betrays me and make me a problem.

A wireless signal accompanies us at every turn at the present time. At home, at work or on the go. Because of its convenience, wireless internet is popular with all users who like to browse the web anywhere in their home, both behind a desk and in a comfortable couch.Thatsway wi-fi must working good.

We had a problem with the network. The apartment is on 2 levels and the signal could not be caught on the upper level. We bought another router and connected. it's much better now, but on the lower level I have a problem in one room. namely, as those from the technical support said, due to the large number of mirrors in the hallway, the signal is weak. I didn't know this about aluminum foil and thank you. I have to try this.

Routers should not be placed where the mirrors are, then behind the TV and near the microwave oven ... This can interfere with the signal!

I definitely think that the best way is to place the antennas vertically in the case of one floor, if possible somewhere in the center of the floor.

Try to apply these tips, if you have two floors, I advise one antenna to be turned horizontally and the other vertically. And don't place routers behind the TV, in rooms where there are a lot of mirrors, or in the kitchen if you have a microwave.

With these tips already written, I would recommend that you do not hold the router behind the TV, and that it is not near mirrors and microwave ovens.

I have an apartment in my apartment, since I have a lot of partition walls and it is not possible to cover all the rooms with just one router, I have another additional router that is placed near the bedrooms. That's how I solved the problem, it's not an expensive solution and it's effective.

Yes, you are right. We can solve it that way, and a signal amplifier is not a bad idea either, and it can help a lot in signal strength.
