That’s right, you can actually boost your home / office wi-fi signal using nothing more than something you probably use everyday. Best of all, it will only cost you a few cents should there not be one around the house. Continue reading for the instructions.

Interesting Wi-Fi facts:

  • As many people know, the name Wi-Fi is short for “wireless fidelity.” This name suggests the trumping of “Hi-Fi”, or high fidelity, which for years was the high standard in audio equipment classification. While this name is catchy, shows evolution, and seems to make sense at first, it is also quite puzzling since audio equipment has nothing to do with wireless Internet.
  • Since there was an alliance that created this technology and then subsequently named it, we must respect Wi-Fi as something of a brand name. Much like how all Kleenex is tissue but not all tissue is Kleenex, all Wi-Fi is wireless Internet technology, but not all wireless internet technology is Wi-Fi certified.
  • In 1985, the FCC allowed researchers and developers to create products that could operate on radio frequencies higher or lower than the currently approved FM and television widths. This ruling gave the green light to some of the technology we know and love today, such as cordless phones, Bluetooth, and CB radio.
