How do I increase wifi signal in apartment?

JLI1 asked:


I live in an apartment complex and my laptop picks up about 3 wifi signals with different names. I kind of piggyback off these internet wifi signals but they’re all about only 2 bars and they’re slow. Is there any accessory I can buy to increase the signal strength for my laptop?

    You can take some aluminum foil and make a makeshift satalite dish near the reciever, touching the laptop, and point it towards the source….you will have an increase of between 10-25%

    “Piggybacking” is theft of service and unauthorized use of a computer – both felonies on the federal level.

    You increase the signal by BUYING internet service of your own.

    wireless internet providers

    Try buying a Linksys wireless-N network adapter. model no. WUSB300N. I have a weak signal too and it works well for me. It cost about $70-80. Tell your neighbors to keep their wifi signal out of your apartment = )
