Reliable internet is so important to our day-to-day life. Here is a simple tip to improve your Wi-Fi signal today and make sure you get the strongest signal.
Unsurprisingly Wifi routers don’t get a lot of love when you are planning the layout of your home. They often end up tucked in a corner, in the back of a room, or hidden under a desk or piece of furniture. But hiding the modem away can stop it from doing its job. Solid doors and walls can absorb and degrade the strength of your signal. Try moving your router to a spot in clear view in a centrally located room, or the room where you connect most often.
Wi-Fi signals from a router tend to spread out and downward, so the best spot for your router is high up. The higher position will allow the router signal to spread through your home with fewer objects to impede it. If you live in a two or three story home, the second floor is often the perfect spot. Experiment with moving your router to a higher spot and see how the signal changes.
