Improving your WI-FI router signal strength

by Timothy Stone

When using wireless there are some tips on how to get a better signal from your main router (the little box that allows you to share your Internet)

  1. Position your wireless router as close to the center of the house as possible.
  2. Position your wireless router high up in an area where there is nothing blocking it.
  3. Position your wireless router away from any metals or thick walls (these can block the signal).
  4. Purchase a wireless repeater (if you have a huge house you might need to do this for the signal to be stronger.
  5. Use a wireless router that has at least “Wireless N” support which will offer more coverage.

Some wireless routers allow you to also change theĀ antenna which allows you to get a clear connection further.
