How To Extend Wireless Router Signal Range?

If you are using wireless router to run computer network you may find yourself in a situation where in your computer is not able to connect to the network in some parts of your home. If you want to extend wireless signal range for your wireless network and improving wireless router speed and performance follow the following tips:-

• Place your wireless router in a central location in your home. Be sure that your wireless router is not against an outside wall.

• Keep your wireless router away from metal objects and floors. The closer your wireless router to these obstructions the more severe the interference, and the weaker your connection will be.

• If your router’s antenna is removable, you can upgrade to a high-gain antenna that focuses the wireless signals in only one direction. The antennas supplied with your router are designed in such a way that they broadcast in all directions.

• Update your firmware. To get the latest firmware updates for your router, visit your router manufacturer's website.

• Add a wireless repeater. Wireless repeaters extend your wireless network range without requiring you to add any wiring. Just place the wireless repeater halfway between your wireless router, modem router, or access point and your computer, and you can get an instant boost to your wireless signal strength. Check out the wireless-N repeaters from Linksys, Hawking Hi-Gain, ViewSonic, D-Link, and Buffalo Technology, or shop for a wireless-N repeater.
