If your Wi-Fi isn’t working properly, it may not be your mobile phone that is to blame, but it’s your space; and specifically, these 6 items in the room.
Many metal surfaces
Metal tends to absorb electricity, preventing the electromagnetic waves emitted by your router from spreading properly in the space, thereby weakening your Wi-Fi signal.
Between your device and the router are many walls
Materials like brick, cement and marble don’t do well with the electromagnetic waves your router is trying to send you. Hence in two-storey houses, a signal exists only on one of the floors; basically, to the one the router is. Try putting it on the most ”open” spot in the house, and if that doesn’t work, get a repeater.
You got a lot of mirrors in the room
And no, that’s not a comment on your vanity. The mirror acts as a shield for electromagnetic waves, making them bounce on its surface and thereby destabilising your Internet connection.
Since its frequency range is similar to that of your router, it is a good idea not to have these two devices close to each other; If you don’t have a choice, at least put the router to a higher spot than the microwave oven.
These devices -that young parents use to hear the baby while sleeping- also transmit at a frequency similar to that of Wi-Fi. Remove them from the router and the problem will probably be solved.
The fridge and washer
… And in general, anything that contains pipes in which water is flowing. Electromagnetic waves are like cats: They do not like water. Place the router as far as possible from such devices, and your signal will improve.
