How to increase my Wi-Fi Signal Strength – Home made solution

Do you want to  increase  your WiFi signal strength area without spending on new hardware?  Some times  its annoying when you get low WiFi signals as you move away from your wireless Router.

To  increase  WiFi signals you can buy a new bigger antenna to allow your device give the signals more away, but we can achieve this with almost nothing, just what you need is  a piece of  aluminum foil.

To  increase  the signal WiFi we must cut  a piece of  aluminum foil of 30 × 30 cm and place it behind the router, this will  increase  your WiFi signal  strength in that area.


Still upset about the weak signal strength of your WIFI network? Well, there are some tips for you.  

1. Place the  wireless router  as near to your laptop as possible. However if there were more than one user relying on the wireless network, you have to put  the router  in the center of  your office  or house so that everyone can enjoy access to it.

2.  Upgrade your wireless firmware to the latest version. The  wireless router company may make improvements to boost  the performance, so it would be a good idea to check your  wireless router’s website from time to time.

3.  Update your  wireless network adapter driver. This also helps boost your WIFI signal strength. Be sure to back up first.  

4. Buy a wireless signal  repeater.  A  repeater  will extend your WIFI signal coverage tremendously. However this requires spending  extra money, but if you do not mind, it really helps a lot.  

5. Upgrade to Wireless N. If you were to set up your WiFi network, you can consider using 802.11n devices. Wireless N uses multiple-in-multiple-out (MIMO), a smart antenna technology, and other improvements that make for much larger coverage areas and faster  connections. To get full improvement, you also need to use both Wireless N for  the router  and the  wireless adapters
