You can talk to your router. You can. And no one will think you’re crazy. Rather than shouting at it asking why it won’t work though, what you need to do is use some software, and that’s very likely some software that you already own.
Check the make and model of your wireless router on the box itself and then have a search on your computer for some software with the same company name. If you can’t find the application on your desktop, then either download some from your manufacturer’s website or try typing the IP address of your router into the address bar of your internet browser. What’s your router’s IP address? Well, it’s most likely either 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1.
If you’re asked for a username and password, and you don’t remember setting one in the first place, try ‘admin’ for the username and leave the password field blank. That’s the default credentials for most systems but take a look at the label on your router or in the online manual if that doesn’t work.
Now that you’re in, head for a wireless settings section and keep your eyes out for a place where you can change your wireless signal strength. Look to ramp it up to the max where you can and be on the lookout for any boost modes. Turn all of that up to 100% and beyond and then see if that makes a difference to your home Wi-Fi signal.
