How to boost your Wi-Fi signal

You have signed up with a new Internet service provider, but your connection is still very slow. Many people have the same problem. Your internet signal could be better for a number of reasons. In many cases, the Wi-Fi signal needs to be stronger. This post’ll show you three tips to boost your home Wi-Fi signal. The first two tips are quick fixes, while the third goes to the heart of the matter. Get to work!

How can I improve my Wi-Fi signal at home?

1. Place your router optimally
Typical situation: You put the router in the corner of the house – not good. In order for the Wi-Fi signal to reach everywhere, we recommend placing the device in the middle of your house or apartment. This way, the signal is distributed evenly with few “dead spots” in the room.

If your router has a movable antenna, then you should have the antenna pointing toward your devices. If your router has two antennas, place one horizontally and the other vertically.

2. Add a password
Another classic: an unsecured Wi-Fi. This poses several problems. First, many users can access it, and second, criminals can use an unsecured network.

Generally, all routers today come with passwords. But you may need to change them. In the browser, type and press Enter. Then you will be asked for the username and password. If you don’t know both fields, the solution might be admin for username and password. Once you have access to your router, you should change the password. A secure password consists of numbers and letters.

3. Use a WLAN amplifier
A solution that always helps: a Wi-Fi amplifier. The above methods are helpful if your house is small or the signal bandwidth is overloaded. But it would help to have a Wi-Fi amplifier when you have a bigger distance to your router.

With a wireless amplifier, you can boost the primary wireless signal. The installation is simple. You need to plug the amplifier into the socket next to your router and synchronize it. Then you can plug the amplifier into a more remote socket. That’s all you need to do.
