As a computer technician with over 35 years in the business, I have seen many Internet connection problems. This is especially true with WIFI.

The most common problem is establishing a “good강남레깅스룸” connection between the remote computer and the wireless router. Many people don’t realize that just because they are getting a signal from their wireless router, (AP) they still may not be able to connect to the Internet. The problem is this.

A weak or noisy Internet connection is usually caused by lost or scrambled data packets. These corrupted packets are constantly “forwarded” between the router and the receiving computer. This slows down the connection considerably and may even prevent you from connecting to the Internet.

There are several ways to improve these weak WIFI signals. The easiest is to move the wireless router. If possible, try to place your router near the center of the building. I have picked up WIFI signals from up to 1,000 feet away when there were no obstacles blocking the transmission. On the other hand, I have also had difficulty getting the signal to go from one end of a house to the other. This can be especially true if the router is located on a different floor than the receiving computer. The more walls and floors the signal goes through, the weaker it will be.

If you can’t place the router near the center of the building, there are other things you can do. First, try moving the receiving computer to a different location. Even turning it in a different direction may help. Laptops usually have the WIFI antenna built into the monitor, so just turning the computer slightly is enough to improve reception.

In general, I have found that USB Internet adapters work much better than internal laptop receivers. The reason is… these external adapters come with a three to five foot cable that allows the adapter to be placed up high and away from obstacles that might block the WIFI signal. Unfortunately, this means dragging around an additional device which is not what I really want to do. Luckily, in most cases your internal WIFI device will do the job without a problem.

If you need to reach an access point that is hundreds or even thousands of meters away, you will need to investigate adding a high gain antenna and a USB Internet adapter. In reality, this is old technology. Amateur radio hobbyists have been building high gain antennas for decades that allow them to receive signals from all over the world. There are several antenna designs that virtually anyone can build. For a few dollars, you can increase your range considerably.

The world record for WIFI connection using “just” a high gain antenna is 238 miles. You’re probably not thinking about breaking any records, but it’s quite common to see people connecting to wireless routers up to a mile or more away, simply by using DIY antennas.
