Does your wireless router signal need a boost, need to eliminate black spots? Then try this...

Wires are one of the biggest nightmares associated with any electrical equipment... In just one room I have a TV, VHS and DVD player...

...A PC, monitor, printer and scanner... But at least I have my wonderful Xbox 360 and wireless broadband keeping up the wireless potential.

Thankfully wires are slowly becoming a thing of the past, with new technology surfacing all the time it is now well worth switching to wireless where possible.

However poor positioning, thick walls and black spots can still be a problem in your home or wireless network – causing weak, patchy and just down right poor signal in many places (there’s no point having wireless if your stuck next to the router anyway)...

But...

There are some cheap and effective tricks you can use to boost that signal...




Centralize Your Wireless Router

Quick and easy tips to boost your wireless router signal... Does your Wi-Fi signal need a boost, need to eliminate black spots, then try this...

Ensure you can put the router in the most central spot possible...

Make sure it is not shielded by metal objects or electrical objects...

...It is the hot spot for your signal and pushes it evenly around your home in every direction (putting it in a corner or back room and your signal will likely be disappointing)




Get a Better, Hi-Gain Antenna

Many routers have detachable antenna easily removed and replaced with stronger, high end ones...

...You can upgrade your antenna starting at about $10.00 (£6.00), maybe cheaper...

And you can find Wi-Fi antennas all over the web (I would advise you look for a couple of reviews or visit a forum for current recommendations as new products surface constantly).

This option is a very cheap but very effective way to instantly improve your signal.



Mains Networking Technology

Even with the best will in the world you will likely find certain black spots ureachable by your Wi-Fi signal.

But if the need calls...

You can always invest in some neat mains networking technology like the Microlink dLAN Ethernet Plug or similar, starting at around $60.00 (£35.00). These are basically plugs connected to your router and then to your mains socket...

...Now feeding the internet into every socket in the household, just stick another plucg into any socket in the house, connect to your computer via an Ethernet cable and bingo – high speed internet in that nasty little black spot...

I know it’s not wireless but it’s still a very useful solution if all else fails.



Upgrade Your Wireless Router

Can be costly but worth while investing in the latest kit.

Over the past 12 months there has been numerous wireless routers designed to share a broadband connection among multiple PCs...

...And with the next generation currently supporting 802.11g, which can create a wireless network throughout your home or office at speeds up to 108Mbps.

But...

You should consider what you really need from your router in terms of speed, functionality, price, ease of use, features, and security...

There is no point investing way above your own needs.

It’s worth taking a look around the net for the numerous review site covering wireless routers, a good place to start is reviews.cnet.com.
