So, I will share the steps to improve the Wi-Fi signal strength without paying anything to anyone. Before we get started with the steps, I want to inform you have these tips will work only if you are in non-industrial space because the performance of the Wi-Fi signal is directly affected by the environment in which the router is placed. So, let’s get started.
Ways to Improve Wi-Fi Signal Strength
I am going to illustrate the points on each aspect that could improve your current Wi-Fi signal strength without replacing the router. The tips might not work as efficiently as it should for outed router models.
Router’s Distance from You:
The router works on a different set of technology as compared to your radio and mobile phone signals. So there is no comparison between using a cellular internet and using the internet through Wi-Fi signal. The router’s distance from your current position where you are using the internet makes a big difference. The near you are to the router the more your Wi-Fi signal strength will be. But there is an issue here, and the issue that you can not always available near to our router in the duplex house, or house which more than 7 rooms. That is why the routers are built to use the internet on multiple devices without wire. So, if you are not much far from your router and still having a weak Wi-Fi signal issue that means your router is not capable of being of cheap quality. To resolve this issue you need to buy a new router as simple as that.
Router’s Placement / Position
The signal emitted by the Wi-Fi signal can be partially absorbed or deviate due to impediment in the route. For example; if your router sends a file to your connected device, the quality of the file depends upon how less the noise is. Here noise is metallic surfaces, another router, a Rugged wall, or any other impediment. Some people like to place their router on a microwave or fridge because they think that is the perfect hidden way place to put router. But that is a decision that will result in the inefficiency of Wi-Fi Signal Strength. I suggest you place the router in the house from where you can see it while using your device. That is simple and the best solution is to reduce the noise in the route.
Router’s Out-Dated Firmware
This is the most common reason due to which your router struggles to provide a better internet speed. So, you need to check your routers firmware version at least once a month. Usually, all prestige router manufacturers provide update notifications but still I suggest you check for firmware updates regularly. The process of updating the firmware is simple. You just need to download the latest version of your router’s firmware and upload it to the router’s admin page area. This process could take 2-3 minutes depending upon your router’s company. Once upload the router will install the firmware automatically and restart itself several times. There is another advantage of using an updated version of the firmware. it’s prevents phishing and other attacks on your router from the internet.
So, finally above the issues that concern them most in router terminology. I hope this article helps you to resolve the weak Wi-Fi signal strength issue. If you still have any problems or have any suggestions for us. Please inform us in the comment and will reply to you within 6 hours. Thank You!
