Boosting wifi signal
« on: May 08, 2012, 11:06:22 AM »
I want to use my ACER A500 Android tablet in my bedroom.  The wifi router is in my den, about 40' away.  The signal in the BR is weak, usually about 20%. How can I boost the wifi signal to my tablet?

You can get a WIFI repeater, also known as a Range Extender, to increase the signal strength and expand the coverage.  Place the extender box somewhere between the existing WIFI generator, where there is a strong signal, and where you need the signal to be stronger.
These are easy to set up and you can get a good one for about $60. 

You might also try downloading an app that will boost the signal.  These are hit or miss as far as how well they work, but you can try it, if it works then you are good to go, if not, then uninstall it.  Here is one that seems to work well WiFi Booster Easy Connect

Good luck.
