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.
