Wireless technology to connect different computing devices has been around for a while now. But this technology was able to reach the mass audience only when the hardware became affordable for everyone.
The fact of the matter is that to achieve the maximum performance from wireless via Wi-Fi, we must take into consideration a number of factors that are very important. These factors makes the difference between a “working” connection and a “fast” connection.
In this article you will learn some of the tips that allow us to connect to Internet at the highest speed possible. We’ll also talk about certain security practices that will be very useful to reach our goal of reaching the highest speed possible.
The location of the transmitter
Perhaps one of the things we should pay more attention is the location of Wi-Fi transmitter. If you have it located in the wrong place, it will not deliver the best signal quality.
We should locate the Wi-Fi transmitter device in a cabinet that it’s above the floor. While doing this, we should keep an eye of any metallic surface in between the transmitter and the PC, as this items will degrade the quality of the signal.
Try to put the transmitter away from any items with metallic surfaces. If possible, we should also place the device away from cordless phones or microwave ovens.
Improve the transmission distance
In the event that we did not have good reception somewhere in our home or office, the best we can do is to implement the use of a signal repeater.
Get the best Wi-Fi signal possible
If we want to optimize our signal reception, one of the best ways which we can do it is to use a type of network software rate from Wireshark. It will be of great utility to get the best Wi-Fi signal.
Also very useful method is to use WPA encryption. A great utility in terms of connection security to WEP.
List of access devices with MAC addresses
If you are of the persons that uses too many connections through the same line, then it becomes necessary to create an access list of devices with MAC addresses. This will allow us to limit the unauthorized use of our wireless network.
