WIFI – How to Get a Rock-Solid Internet Connection

The most typical problem is in establishing a ‘good’ connection between the remote computer and the wireless router. Many individuals do not realize that just because you are receiving a signal from your wireless router, (AP) you still might not be able to log onto the Internet. This is the problem.

A weak or noisy internet connection is normally caused by misplaced or scrambled data packets. These damaged packets are continuously being ‘re-sent’ between the router and the receiving computer. This will slow down your connection considerably and will even keep you from getting on the Internet at all.

There are a number of ways you possibly can improve these weak WIFI signals. The easiest is to move the wireless router. If doable, try to find your router close to the middle of the building. I’ve picked up WIFI signals from as far away as 1,000 ft when there have been no obstacles blocking the transmission. Then again, zigmund01 I’ve additionally had a hard time just getting the signal to go from one finish of a house to the other. This could be especially true if the router is located on a different floor than the receiving computer. The more walls and floors the signal passes through, the weaker it gets.

If you can’t locate the router near the middle of the building, there are a number of other things you can do. First, strive moving the receiving computer to a distinct location. Even turning it in a distinct direction might help. Laptops often have the WIFI antenna built into the monitor so just turning the laptop slightly could be all you will need to do to improve the reception.

Typically, I’ve found that USB Internet adapters work much better than laptop inside receivers. The reason is…these external adapters come with a 3 to 5 foot twine allowing the adapter to be positioned high within the air and away from obstacles that could be blocking the WIFI signal. Sadly, this means dragging round an additional system which is just not what I really want to do. Luckily, in most cases your inside WIFI machine will get the job done just fine.

If it’s essential to attain out to an AP that is hundreds or even hundreds of ft away, you will need to analyze adding a high-acquire antenna and a USB Internet adapter. This is definitely old technology. Ham radio buffs have been building hi-achieve antennas for decades allowing them to obtain signals from across the world. There are numerous antenna designs available that practically anybody can build. For a few dollars, you can increase your range considerably.

The world record for a WIFI connection using ‘only’ a hi-acquire antenna is 238 miles! You are probably not planning on difficult any records, but it’s fairly widespread to see folks connecting to wireless routers as much as a mile or more away, just by using DIY antennas.
