WiFi signal strength is tricky. It can be influenced by many factors such as your WiFi network equipment, surrounding electronic devices, physical obstructions between your WiFi router and your device, distance from the WiFi router, etc. In short: a lot of things.
In this guide we’re going to show you how you can improve your WiFi signal strength at home step-by-step and also explain how WiFi works in general. If you just want some quick tips, check out the summary below or read our blog post on improving your wifi at home.
It’s important to realize that there are two aspects to consider when improving the coverage of your WiFi network: the coverage inside your house and the coverage in your garden. Inside your house it’s mostly about finding the sweet spot for your router, while outside you’ll have to think about expanding the range of your network.
WiFi is great, I remember the days when we had to rely on dial up or even cable internet. Those are days that I never want to revisit. If you got a job or school work and needed to get it done at home, you needed a wired connection. Even an Xbox couldn’t connect over WiFi.
The problem with WiFi is how slow it can be at times. This can be for numerous reasons: interference of other devices, congestion and even weak signal strength. Here are some tips to help make your WiFi the best it can be:
The wifi signal can be interfered with by other wireless devices and appliances. Turn off cordless phones, Bluetooth speakers, baby monitors and any other devices that use radio frequencies. These are the frequencies between 2.4GHz and 5GHz. They are often referred to as WiFi channels 1 through 13.
For example, the 2.4GHz band is broken up into 11 channels of 20MHz each or 3 channels of 40MHz each (for 802.11n). The 5GHZ band has 23 channels (20MHz) each or 7 channels of 80MHz each (for 802.11ac).
There is a lot of bitching and moaning going on about how expensive it is to live in Toronto. I’m not going to tell you that it’s cheap to live in Toronto, because if you are used to living in cheaper places like Ottawa or Montreal or Winnipeg, well then it is expensive. But if you’re coming from somewhere like Vancouver, then you probably won’t notice much difference.
Rent for a one bedroom apartment in the downtown core will run you about $1,500 per month. The cost of food has been increasing at about 2-3% per year for the last few years (which is not unusual). So no it isn’t cheap, but it’s also not crazy expensive either.
Having said that, there are some areas where you can save some money:
1) You can buy alcohol at the LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) or at the Beer Store located throughout the city. Both are government controlled monopolies and they provide very competitive pricing compared to bars and restaurants. Beer will cost you between $12-$24 dollars for a case of 24 depending on what type of beer it is (domestic vs import). In a bar, a domestic pint will set you back between $6-$8 dollars per pint
