Strengthen Your Connection in a Wireless Network
Are you planning to set up wireless network connection for your office? To start with this set up, you need to know certain things about this connection. Only then you can establish an efficient network.
Wireless network connection, is usually set up where setting up connection using physical wires is quite a tedious job, probably the office is split into many floors or some other reason. In this case, wireless network eases your issue. However remember that the RF signals which are meant to power the wireless network work good, when there is a “line of sight” between the router and the computer, but this is practically not possible.
The RF signals are usually interrupted: by the walls separating the rooms, cabinets, and computers, and not to forget the lunch room which has a microwave oven and the interference produced by the microwaves radiated from it. So, we have seen how a wireless network can be vulnerable. The assets which create disturbances in the network are unavoidable in a physical office environment, so we have to think of how the wireless network connection can be strengthened.
The line of sight can be made more effective by placing the routers and computers at closer vicinity. Now, the question is where to place the access point and your system, so that the access is better? Center of the office is always a good place, to keep both the transmitter & receiver, as the center is usually free of any kind of obstructions.
Generally routers and adapters come with low-efficient antennas, due to which signal losses are more. This is one of the reasons of weak signals thereby, weaker performance of the network. You can, however optimize the efficiency of the antennas by upgrading to directional antennas. Try your best to place the directional antenna as closer as possible to the routers, this will definitely minimize the signal loss and strengthen the wireless network to an extent.
Add an Wireless repeater
Spend few pennies and buy a wireless repeater for your wireless network. The better location for a wireless repeater is the center point between the original router and computers. You might find it weird to spend money on a second router, when you already have one. But this is very useful, when the distance between the transmitter and receiver is more. When the signal travels at a long distance, it becomes weaker gradually. A wireless repeater picks it, strengthens it and re-directs it to its destined receiver. This way you get an optimized network connection.
Wireless network connection is majorly, about the location of the equipments being placed. You can try few of the tips cited by us, to boost up the signal of your wireless network.
