Suggestion for improving wifi

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Let me begin with explaining my setup before the problem had begun:

I have a very basic Netgear N150 router at home. A PC wired to the router, a macbook, 3 android phones and 1 android tv are all the devices I have that need wifi. My house being small this setup was sufficient for my needs.

 

Later I decided to move my computer to another room. So I added a TPLink wifi card to my computer, since I cannot move my router along because it has to be near the internet modem which I cannot move because of the wiring issues.

 

But now I am not getting a good stable wifi connection only to the pc. If I keep my laptop at the exact place where my PC is right now, it is still able to get a very good connection. So I am not particularly sure if my wifi card is the problem.

 

Help me find the problem in my setup, also suggest what should be my probable upgrade at the minimum cost to get this fixed.

 

P.S. - My wifi network has to be on channel on 9, as my android TV does not recognise networks on any other channel.

Honestly, wifi is a "good" technology but far from perfect and is highly susceptible to interference from just about everything and anything. Your best recourse will be to figure out how you can run an ethernet cable.

You say almost.. but that means its not... Honestly dropping wifi and figuring it out will give you the best, most consistent performance. Wifi is just to unreliable due to the interference.
