One of the simple way to improve the Wi-Fi signal is to place your Wi-Fi router in your drawing room/Hall so that all nearby room can have equal or nearer to equal signal strength. Instead, if you place router in bedroom, there are chances of poor signal issue in other bedroom too.

As far as more Wi-Fi network interference is concerned, you cannot simply avoid that. You have to tackle with it. So, try to be nearer to router and majority of problem will be solved.

Here are a few ways to improve your home WiFi signal -

1. Use latest technology equipment

Use up to date hardware. Opt for the router that gives best speeds.

2. Place the router at the optimum position

Make it a point to place the router in the open. Avoid walls and disturbances. Placing the router at the centre of your house will give optimum speed in all the rooms.

3. Go for proper channel

Routers from your neighbourhood may interfere with your router. Choose a proper channel with least interference.

4. Use password protection

If you do not use password protection for your WiFi signals, people from around your area may steal the signals, thereby decreasing the overall speed. Use good security measures.

5. Reboot your router frequently

Make it a habit to reboot your router at least once in a week. If your router has the feature, enable scheduled reboot.
