Hey handym4n01,

The built - in wifi adapter of a laptop has only a range of 40 - 50 meters, but you could use a separate wifi adapter, an example of which is an usb wireless adapter where you could customize it. Have you ever heard of a "cantenna", it is just like having an empty can where you'd wrap it with foil and afterwhich you could put the wireless adapter in the middle of the can. An example image is posted below.. The can wrapped with foil helps boost the signal of the wireless adapter.wi-fi help - 197bc00.jpg

Wireless Tip: Does you wireless router keep disconnecting / dropping the...


Home wireless networks that are based on the 802.11b or 802.11g/n standards transmit their signal in a narrow radio frequency range of 2.4 GHz. Various other electronic devices in a home, such as cordless phones, garage door openers, baby monitors, and microwave ovens, may use this same frequency range. Any such device can interfere with a Wi-FI home network, slowing down its performance and potentially breaking network connections.

The 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi signal range is divided into a number of smaller bands or "channels," similar to television channels. Many wireless products ship with a default Wi-Fi channel of 6. If encountering interference from other devices within the home, consider changing the channel up or down to avoid it. Some Wi-Fi channel numbers overlap with each other. Channel 1 uses the lowest frequency band and each subsequent channel increases the frequency slightly. Therefore, the further apart two channel numbers are, the less the degree of overlap and likelihood of interference.


If this won't work, try to update or upgrade your wireless network device driver software. Visit your PC/Wireless device manufacturer's website and look for the appropriate updated driver. If the problem continues after doing all these, then consider buying a new wireless router as your current is deemed broken.

Is there any way to get a better wi-fi single


Some of the very common causes of poor Wi-fi reception include- the Wi-Fi router is placed too far from the device on which the Wi-Fi network is being accessed, too many devices are connected to the Wi-Fi network simultaneously, or Wi-Fi settings are incorrect either on the router or on the device which accesses the Wi-Fi network. There are many more reasons that can hamper your Wi-Fi connectivity.

How i increase my iphone wifi range.it works only in 2 to3 meter and when i increase the distance it disconected


Dear zubai892,
I thing you might have a problem with you wi-fi setup in your house. Have you tried using iPhone's wi-fi in other places (were wi-fi is available)? If not, try it. If it works in a longer distance, than you need to contact your internet provider. If the iPhone acts the same even in other wi-fi places, you need to contact an official Apple dealer.
