Easy Methods To Get The Best Wireless Connection Speed
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Nearly all laptop, netbook and notebook users would rather connect their portable personal computer to the net via a WI-FI link. It is far easier to use a wireless network since this eliminates running a cord out of the router to the portable computer. Unfortunately, the disadvantage is usually that the signal strength, and therefore, online connection speed and stability will reduce the further the mobile computer is from the wi-fi router. There are numerous techniques to assist in improving the signal intensity, I'm going to summarize them in the following paragraphs.

Any sort of metal or cords will reduce the Wi-Fi signal sent coming from the router to the receiver situated on the notebook, netbook and laptop. The larger the metal items the more of the signal that will be blocked to your portable computer. This leads to the WI-FI transmission intensity and the quickness of the Internet connection being lowered. You will probably find that transferring to a different spot inside the room can provide improved or worse results. A mirror may perform like a large piece of metal because it includes a silver backing; therefore refrain from putting the wireless router near any mirror.

You should never site the router near micro wave ovens, cellular phones, or other transmitters, specially if it works at 2.4 GHz since this is the frequency used by most WI-FI networks. Moreover, whenever configuring the WI-FI router’s wireless setting, opt for a different station compared to the one established as the default. This will make sure that you are not working on the exact same channel as various other local sources. Whilst verifying the configuration on the wireless router ensure the transmitted strength is set to the highest option and the kind of transmission is fixed to wireless 802-11A, 802-11G or 802-11N because this ought to deliver the very best range.

Aluminum foil properly put behind the router’s aerial may considerably increase the transmission intensity but only in one direction. You might wish to experiment by curving and twisting the foil in order that it reflects the Wi-Fi transmission at the portable pc. Instead, you can buy WI-FI wireless repeater. You can put this halfway between your wireless router and the pc that receives the weakest signal strength. That should definitely boost the WI-FI signal hitting the most faraway computer.

It is rather unlikely that your WI-FI interconnection is ever going to give as reliable and fast interconnection as a wired LAN interconnection gives. Presently, 802-11A and 802-11G with ideal conditions may result in a connection speed around 25 Mbps whereas cabled LAN that will give 100 Mbps. Should you be lucky enough to own an 802-11N network then a connection performance of 100 Mbps is possible by cautious setting of the wireless router and portable computer.

Nearly all netbook, notebook and laptop users love the convenience of a WiFi interconnection but are unhappy with the speed and dependability that results. A wired LAN web connection will usually create a more reliable, speedier internet connection. It's not always too crucial should you be just using social networks and emails but if you're planning to watch streaming online video then a cabled LAN connect is going to be necessary.
