Yes. You can just deploy a Wireless Access Point or a Wireless Range Expander. What they do is they extend your signal from main router thus, if you're having low reception at one part of your house, deploy the Wireless Access Point there and it's gonna give you another excellent signal.

How can i boost and speed up my Wifi network reception ?


Firstly download WiFi Analyser from Google Play store and compare you WiFi with others in your area. This will enable you to change the channel. Change channel by logging into your router - 192.168.1.1.
Try moving your router to a more central place in your home and use the analyser to check if any improvement.
Next try a wireless extender. This will drop your speed a little but give a stronger signal in weak areas.
Also try power line adapters.
If you are using a few devices ensure that you are not mixing wireless g and n products at same time. Using a g product will mean that your whole wireless will be running at that speed even when your other device is n. If you need both connect another g router to one of the n router LAN ports with dhcp disabled. That way you can have the two devices connected at the correct speed.
Some routers will let you connect a bigger aerial which could boost you reception. Some devices have very poor wireless antennas - seems you what you pay for in this area.

Poor reception on some digital channels


If possible either move the set to a room with no reception issue to see if same there or move another set to where this one is.

Usually a set does not have a problem if only certain channels.

Swap the set(looking for loose or damaged connection where cable crimps to fitting) if you can.

I just bought a laptop and I wanna connect to wifi how can I do it?


First you must understand that wi-fi only works within a certain distance from the wireless router. It's not like cellphone reception where the wireless provider installs cells throughout the countryside to make sure that you can get reception. You have to either get your own internet connection to your house and your own wireless router, and then you have to install the wireless router, or you have to go to a coffee shop or other establishment (public library?) that provides its patrons free wireless internet while they are on the premises. Once you do one of those two things, then (in Windows 7) you have to click on the network connection icon in the lower left-hand corner of the screen, then click on the name of the wireless network that you want to connect to and click "connect", and then if prompted, type in the network key for that network. After this, you should be connected to the internet wirelessly as long as you are within range of that wireless router.

You can use repeaters which you can place midway between you and the WiFi access point.

Take a look at http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-11334_7-6271405-5.html to have an idea of how it works.

With strategically placed repeaters, you can cover very large areas efficiently.

I get bad reception with my TP-Link PCIe Wifi Card! What can i do?


Often times the antennae on these routers come loose. Ensure that the antennae are firmly plugged in.

Try also changing the channel. Routers have 11 to 13 possible channels and most default to 1 6 or 11. Try a different number to reduce interference.

Physical construction of your house can hinder wifi reception. This is often subjective and your best bet would be to move the router around the room or into a different room if possible.

Try placing the router closer to the center of the house, and in a higher area, and away from cordless phones, and high voltage wiring.
