    How to increase wifi reception
    « on: February 19, 2014, 10:35:55 PM »
    i move outside town to work, and have really bad wifi reception because we don't have internet connection here. Is there any way to boost / get better wifi reception so i can connect to the wifi? it only have 2 bars and it can't connect with 2 bar, do i need to buy the tools or create some tools myself? no internet no life for me :(

    How far are you from the Wi-Fi transmitter?
    When we say 'Wi-Fi' we mean a kind of digital microwave that
    can have a coverage of 100  to 500 meters, more or less.
    A reference:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wi-Fi
    Also see:

    But cell phones, as you know, cover a much larger area. In some suburban or rural areas people use a 3g or 4g cell phone to get  internet reception.
    Of course, you have to pay for it.
    In some cities there are areas where Wi-Fi is free, but mostly the inner city only.
    In California there are many such places. See this:

    For long range reception, you have to buy or build an outdoor antenna.

    You must have a clear view of the target to get long range with the antenna.

      can u give me the exact video how to create the antenna ?
      i don't have the exact location from the wifi location either, i just know that i get 2 bar, because usually i connect it from the mall and get very decent speed with my account. but at my relatives location it only get 2 bar and now i use phone tethering to connect, but extremely slow enough to do anything, i just want to know how to insert the antenna
