Low level of Wi-Fi signal hinders comfortablywork online? There are a lot of methods and techniques for enhancing it, which we gladly share. Wireless networks have already become so tightly integrated into our lives that a cafe, restaurant or apartment without Wi-Fi is now perceived as something from the last century. A set of equipment capable of connecting remotely, is expanding every year. Do not surprise anyone with a TV with a Smart TV function, or a coffee maker, or a refrigerator that can directly communicate over the Internet. Even if they have a LAN port. What wires? They should be at a minimum, and all communication in an apartment or house - only via Wi-Fi. This will be discussed later. In their home, many are faced with the problem of slow Internet speeds when connected via a wireless connection. What could be the reason? Obviously, the problem lies in the coverage area, the radius of which depends on the model of the router, the type of access point, the power of the antennas and other technical parameters. In addition, the device can be influenced by a variety of external factors, one way or another related to the interior - the material of the walls, the number of partitions, the location of other devices, their number, as well as the availability of upholstered furniture, cabinets, mirrors, household appliances. Conclusion one: you need to strengthen the Wi-Fi signal. How can this be done? Portable router In nature or in the country, intrip or at work, or even just at home, if you need access to the Internet, you can use your smartphone as an access point. Many modern devices support this function, allowing for a few seconds to start distributing precious Wi-Fi. The second option is more expensive and advanced: buy a mobile router, abbreviated MiFi. These pocket portable connection points can work with any operator and are able to support several devices at once online. This solution is ideal for those who move a lot and are not used to being tied to one place. Home methods For those who wantTo equip your apartment, house (or even the territory around the house) with a fixed access point to a permanent, stable and fast Internet that would be accessible from any angle, there are a lot of solutions. Finding the best location The easiest option is to change the location for the router. Radio waves, if they are not superimposed by external overlapping factors, usually propagate from the source in several directions. In fact, this is an electromagnetic oscillation in space, the source of which is a conductor with alternating electric current. The range and direction will depend both on the frequency of the oscillation and on factors such as absorption, refraction, diffraction, reflection, interference, or damping. That is, the waves can be modified, change the vector or self-destruct when encountering any material or object in its path. Concrete, metal, ceramics, plasterboard, reinforcement have a large absorption coefficient, slightly less - brick, glass, water (mirror, aquarium ...). So, we should try to arrange the router so that the number of obstacles between it and the device for receiving the signal is minimal. It is worth looking for the center of the apartment and experimenting, and not only in the horizontal plane. The program approach Having found the zero coordinate forhis apartment and not seeing any noticeable changes, you need to access the settings of the router. The usual supported network standards are 802.11 b, 802.11 g, 802.11 n and so on, to newer and faster versions. Therefore, the latter should be followed by setting the required parameter in the settings section of the router's operating mode. The main thing is that the devices are compatible with this standard. Analytical method If the house is multi-unit, andin each apartment there is a Wi-Fi, working by default on the same frequency of the channel, no wonder that the speed of all wireless devices falls. You can install a program, for example Inssider, which will show how many networks are actually located nearby. Having found a free channel, you can safely save it in the settings, and - a miracle! - the speed will instantly increase! Additional resources Within the rubric"Crazy pens" some suggest a simple and effective, in their opinion, advice on signal amplification. It will be necessary to modernize the router in an applied way - to re-make the antenna into a directional source of radio waves. For example, with the help of something that will reflect the signal from itself. It looks, of course, not aesthetically pleasing, but you can hide all this design on a shelf or put it on a cabinet. Where the more effective way is still the purchase of a new, more powerful antenna, capable of three to four times amplify the signal. Or just install one more. Range extender It is also called a repeater. The bottom line is that it only connects to the main device and extends the coverage of the Wi-Fi network. The repeater will catch the original signal and repeat it further, deep into the apartment or into the garden. The price of the issue is from 500 to 2 000 rubles, depending on the capacity. And there can be several. The main thing is to try to do something, because there are a lot of ways!
