Internet is an ever growing technology. Thousands of sites are added daily to this network which is making this already large network even larger. All what you need to view those pages is the internet connection provided by ISP (Internet Service Provider). There are various kinds of internet connections; you can either get the USB cable wired modem internet connection or the wireless connection, also called the Wi-Fi connection.
Some people have the misconception that Wi-Fi connections are slower than the wired connection, let me tell all those people that there is no difference between these two connection as far as the speed is concerned. And in case you are getting slow internet speed over Wi-Fi as compared to the wired connection from the same modem then nothing much to worry, you can just follow this list of top 5 tips to get a faster WiFi connection.
[stextbox id="info"]#1 Stay Close[/stextbox]
If you want the best Wi-Fi signals then you have to find a place close to your router. For best speed I suggest you to stay in the area of 25m diameter. Staying close to the router can get you the best signal quality as compared to the signal quality which you will get while sitting in far-flung places like 50m away from modem. Signal quality degrades with the distance.
[stextbox id="info"]#2 Don’t Work in Closet[/stextbox]
The reason why many people don’t get the best out of their Wi-Fi connection is because they work in closet. Closet here means an area surrounded by large number of walls or other similarly solid obstacles. Such kind of obstacles degrades the quality of the signal so try working in an area where there are least number of obstacles between you and your router.
[stextbox id="info"]#3 Make Use of Amplifiers[/stextbox]
Ever wondered how does one router, in a big building, provide Wi-Fi connection to everyone? It’s because that modem has got amplifiers. Amplifiers used in routers are same as the one used in speakers. The only work of amplifiers is to strengthen the signal quality so that the users, regardless of how far they are, get good signal quality.
[stextbox id="info"]#4 Keep Your Router High[/stextbox]
The higher you place your router, the better it is. It’s a proven fact that if your router is placed at a higher position then you are more likely to get better quality signals because the encrypted packets sent from satellites are easily received by the router when it’s placed at a higher position.
[stextbox id="info"]#5 Search for the Best[/stextbox]
Keep experimenting with the positions. Always bookmark the place where you get really good signal quality so that you can later use it. There is no one common method of finding the best position so keep experimenting.
