As we know that in day to day life wifi has become a basic need for life. Sometimes we face network issues while using the wifi. Here in this blog, I will tell you how can you improve your Wi-Fi signal at home. We will also discuss other information related to it.
Following are the things that limit the range of the wifi:
Normally point to multipoint connection at closed are is done with 802.11g and antenna having range 105 ft. If your wifi signal weakens then you can make them strong with some of the easy techniques.
The following are the methods with the help of which you can make the wifi signal strong at home.
When you want to set up wifi at home then always try to place the large furniture of your house along the wall. The reason behind this is that signals of wifi do not travel the large object and become strong.
Always try to minimize the number of the mirror at the area where you have set up the wifi connection. For this, the reason is that the wifi signal becomes weak in the presence of metal surface and mirrors have a thin layer of metal therefore always try to use fewer mirrors.
Make sure you have placed the router of WIFI at the maximum effective area. While choosing the location to place the wifi keep the following things in mind.
Use repeater and bridge to increase the range of the wifi reception
Repeater: If you want to access the internet sitting at the faraway place from the wireless access point. You can stretch the range of a network by installing the wireless repeater signal. It will help you to extend the coverage area by instant boosting up your access point in the midway.
Wireless Bridge: This method is also known as an ethernet converter. This is used to improve your Wi-Fi signal at home when you face any problem in reception in a wired device. It will provide you better reception with a few numbers of extra bars.
WPA/WPA2 and WEP are two of the security algorithm that is used to prevent your network from hackers entering into your network. It is always recommended to use WPA as a privacy setup because it is more secure than WEP.
Hide your device from other users to make your signal strong. You can achieve this by following instructions.
Step 1) Navigate to the Admin page of the access point.
Step 2) Remove the tick from - SSID broadcast enabled option.
By doing this you can only access the network no other device can connect to your wifi.
It is always said that try to use less number of the device with wifi that supports the MAC Address. It is because fewer devices will give strong signals. This can be done with the following steps:
Step1) Locate addresses for your MAC device.
Step 2) Create an access list for the device.
Step 3) Go to the screen of the configuration.
Step 4) Enable the setting device
Hence you have created a limit for wifi device.
Above in this, I have provided you many easy methodologies to improve your Wi-Fi signal at home. You can use any one of them.
