When Wi-Fi in your home starts to intermittently fail, it can cause a lot of problems - from annoyance that streaming video loads poorly to real trouble with your work. Of course, the first step here is to reboot the router. But there are other life hacks.

Technical experts say that there are at least three ways to boost the signal. OBOZ.UA tells you about these life hacks.

First of all, check if there is any gadget next to the router that can distort the signals. These include, for example, microwaves or various wireless devices such as a Bluetooth speaker. The further they are from each other, the better.

The second tip is to avoid physical obstacles in the way of the Wi-Fi signal as much as possible. Furniture, décor, or any other bulky items can also affect signal quality. Therefore, the idea of hiding your router in some special cabinets or drawers is not really that good in terms of functionality.

And finally, try to move the router to the highest possible point. For example, place it on a cabinet or top shelf. This will not only allow the signal to spread over the maximum distance, but will also create a minimum of obstacles in its path.

In addition, if you have a large apartment or house, you can use Wi-Fi signal boosters that are evenly distributed over the area. But this is a method that requires additional investment. In addition, such solutions can affect the data transfer rate. And clearly not for the better. If after these simple manipulations you are unable to solve the problem with your router, then you should definitely contact your provider to troubleshoot possible technical problems.
