What a great invention was Wifi which gave us the freedom from the wires and made our lives lot more simpler. Wi-Fi is nowadays used to play games online, gathering information, communicating with friends and relatives, etc. But it is also the reason for many frustrations, when Wi-Fi signals are low or when the signal drops or when we do not get speed.
People are always in search of some software or the scripts in order to boost Wifi signal. But now let’s put an end to their search as I have found out the ways which can help boost Wifi signal.
Below are some of the steps which can help boost Wifi signal and can increase the Internet speed drastically.
It is very important to position your wifi at a position where the thick walls do not interfere the signal strength. It is recommended that wifi router should have plenty of clear space around it in order to boost wifi signal.
Putting wifi router on a shelf at a waist height is a brilliant idea. Try keeping the router away from the other wireless devices.
In the urban areas, the use of wifi is increasing so the networks are getting congested and which generally leads to interference of the signals.
Changing the channel of the router can really help boost wifi signal. The BT Home Hub routers include the smart technology which can switch the channels to the least interference one automatically.

If you are not sure which channel to choose thun you can check out inSSIDer for Home. This wonderful software lets you know that how many wifi networks are present on a specific channel.
Manufacturers regularly release software updates to improve the security and stability of the wifi router. So you should regularly install the software updates released.
Latest firmwares have the bugs and vulnerabilities fixed which stop the hackers from penetrating inside the router.
If you are still not satisfied with your wifi then you should consider other options like purchasing a Wifi Extender device. These Wifi devices are awesome buy to boost wifi signal and you can consider Netgear WN300RP or BT Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender. If you want a repeater then you should see to it that it supports the b, g and n.
I personally don’t use a repeater. Instead of that I use an Alfa Card AWUS051NH with 9 dBi antenna and when it comes to receiving wifi signal, it is damn good.

This is another way of extending your home Internet by using the Powerline adapter. This connects the Internet using an electric circuit that runs in the circuits of your home to extend the broadband connection.
The Kit includes two adapters, one is to connect to your router and other to connect in any room to the socket and then connect to any device via ethernet cable.
High-Gain antenna’s can boost wifi signal significantly. I recommend using a High-Gain 9 dBi omnidirectional antenna. The antenna’s should always point upwards away from each other. This way wifi will work ideally.
If the above strategies does not work then the best way would be to replace your wifi router with a better router which support 802.11 n and offers up to 300 Mbps speed.
