In today’s apartments it is important that WiFi signal reaches every corner of the home not only to keep the smartphone connected even if it is moved from one side to the other, but especially to keep several network devices such as TV, IP camera or other “smart” devices.
Depending on the layout of an environment, how the building and furnishings are built, the signal may be more or less weak or absent if the router is distant or if there are interferences.
While up to some time ago it was more complicated to increase the wifi signal reception, today it’s just not enough to make uniform WiFi network coverage within an apartment, office or any environment, by purchasing a self-installing extender repeater device and very easy to use.
If you want to make a straightforward overview of what you can do to increase WiFi reception, we divide the guide into 6 base points …
1) Location of the Router: If the router is too distant from a location where we need to connect to the internet via WiFi, the first option is to move it to a more convenient location center and approach it. Regarding the location of the router, it is important that it has space around it, not enclosed in a mobile or between two walls (not in a corner) that is not grounded (taller, better) and not either near sources of interference such as cordless or microwave. If your router has external antennas, you can point it to the directions where you want to have more signal spread.
4) Buy a WiFi repeater: The WiFi repeater is the easiest solution there is to improve signal reception in an environment as large as a villa or to have a full signal at any point in the home even if the router is placed in peripheral location.
The WiFi repeater is nothing but a device to connect to the power grid at a point far from the router, but where the signal is getting good. The configuration is almost automatic and only requires the configuration panel to access the main router WiFi network.
