Re: Not enought signal

Ok there are a few ways to increase ya signal strength... One can purchase an antenna that has a high "Gain" and connect in place of existing antenna.. One can place the Existing Antenna in "Optimal Positions".. ie: Up High with an Unbroken Line Of Sight between Antennas. One can sometimes increase the Output from your WiFi adapters.. you must check any documentation to see if this is possible. One can make a thing called a"Cantenna" here ---> There are "Other" Home made antennas that are cheap and easy to make, some simply made from cardboard and tin foil. The most important thing to remember is, Antenna Placement for best signal strength, with least amount of obstacles in between units, & up as high as practicable..
