How to improve WiFi reception at home?

The reception is often bad in the most remote parts of your apartment or house. Here are some tips to improve the reception of your WiFi signal. In fact, the environment and parts of your house play a significant role.

Tip # 1:
Move your modem/router away from printers and other home appliances. Free up the space around your modem/router to minimize the negative influence of electromagnetic devices around it. If your modem/router is near a DECT cordless phone, baby alarm, microwave oven etc., the WiFi signal may be disturbed.

Tip # 2:
Raise your modem/router. The modem/router should preferably be located about 1 meter above the ground. You will optimize the propagation of WiFi waves if you position your router vertically.

Tip # 3:
Prefer doors to walls. Too thick walls (concrete, bricks or metal partitions) may dusturb WiFi signals.
