Question about Televison & Video
What can i do to increase my wifi signal. im using an tp link wifi usb adapter which is connected to my desktop. what i did was bought a 5m usb extension wire and connected it going outside of the house.
i only recieve 2 bars and i cant afford to buy any of those boosters i see in the internet.
could someone help me?
wifi usb adapters used for desktops are ok but what you really need for that are pci slot wifi. but its your preference thought.
as youve mentioned, you want to increase your signal strength but you are hesitant to buy another device for that.
what you can do if you dont want to buy anything is use foil.
dont fret thought, foil is proven to work specially in increasing/boosting signal. what you want to do is make use of a parabolic or circular shape bowl or sattelite dish-like plate and cover that with foil. be sure that the usb adapter is in the middle of your sattelite though.
once youve already made this, you can try and use it and connect to the access point. b sure also to position it towards it ok.
hope this helps.

Unfortunately, those USB adapters don't use any type of external antenna that you can modify.
My best suggestion is to get a used internal pci wireless card (they can be found for about $20), and use a high gain antenna that you can put out the window, etc.
If you want to REALLY pull in weak signals, get the internal card, and build yourself a "cantenna" for under $10 using a coffee can and a few parts from radio shack. They work EXTREMELY well.
