Wireless is getting popular and you may even have wireless in your office and home.
At times you may even wonder why you can't get connected to the wireless device when are just only a few meters away.
Understand Wireless Signal
Following are points that you can check, to achieve better wireless signal.
For best result, your wireless Access Point (WAP) should be within your line of sight
Every single object that fall within the direct line between your WAP and Computer will degrade the signal
The building materials greatly affect the differences on signal losses
eg. two 9cm cement walls can take away 50% to 90% of the signal
eg. a 1mm metal-sheel that cover the partition can drop 100% of your signal
A 9cm wall can be as thick as 2 meter wall to signal when you are viewing it from different angle
Keep WAP away from electrical devices that generate RF noise
As WAP are generally 2.4GHz feqquency devices in Singapore, thus avoid using a 2.4GHz devices that crashes the wiress signal.
eg. 2.4GHz Cordless Phone, 2.4GHz RF remote control etc
Hopes this help in achieving better singal within your wireless coverage. :-) ...
