How to boost WiFi Signal?

It’s annoying. The WiFI connection is interrupted again. Maybe it’s the microwave. Or maybe it’s the mirror in front of the router. Aaaahhhh. I hate this router.

If you live in the 21st Century, I am sure you’ve been experienced internet connection drops somewhere, somehow. Connection drops are annoying but how can we fix it?

Bad Signal

There are several things you can do to make sure your WiFi sends a better signal to your devices on the net.

Try these tricks first:

  • Place your router in the center of your house.
  • Don’t place it near concrete, in a closed area like a closet.
  • Don’t place the router near stone, concrete, or bricks.
  • Upgrade your router’s firmware by visiting its web page.
  • Make sure your router is newer to support 5.0 GHz frequency signals.
  • If you have a newer router, put all of your old devices on 2.4 GHz frequency and all new devices on 5.0 GHz frequency.
  • If you live in an apartment, get a newer router.
  • Buy an extended antenna.
All tips above are from Matthew Monix.

However, if you’re not a tech person and don’t want to mess with your router, maybe you should try WiFi extenders like eero.

With this WiFi extender, all you got to do is to install the three extenders by every 1000 sq ft in your house and you’re set. I personally have this in my home since my WiFi connection is not very good. But since my house is 2500 sq ft, I, now have more than enough of a signal.
