Re: wifi weak

That depends on a lot of factors.

 

  • Where is the gateway or the router in this scenario? Have you tried moving it closer to your location? Or move your device closer to it? 
  • Can you run Ethernet cable to your location if your connectivity is vital to your work? 
  • Have you considered other means such as WiFi extenders, a mesh network setup  (like the Xfinity xFi Pods), Powerline or MoCa adapters?

There are other options. Google for WiFi repeaters / range extenders, WiFi mesh systems / pods, powerline ethernet adapters, MoCA adapters. Good luck !
