Most of us use WiFi wireless technology to connect to the internet at home, at the office or in a hotel room using our laptops, tablets and smart-phones.
While wireless access is certainly very convenient, it can also be very frustrating when it is difficult or even impossible to connect to the internet because of a poor wireless signal.
The reason for a poor wireless signal is usually a combination of distance from the broadband wireless router, thick walls or possibly walls or ceilings that incorporate materials such as metals that block radio waves.
USB Antenna Booster
Rather than boost the wireless signal in your home or office by installing an additional wireless access point or by using a Repeater or a Homeplug solution, it may be more appropriate and more cost effective to boost your wireless performance by connecting an external wireless antenna booster to the USB socket of your laptop.
This improves WiFi performance by replacing the relatively weak antenna that is integrated with your laptop with a higher gain antenna.
An added benefit of this solution is that, in addition to improving wireless connectivity at home or in your office, the USB antenna booster solution would also improve laptop connectivity when you are out and about trying to connect to public wireless hotspots such as those found in hotels, cafes or other public places.
Unfortunately this method of enhancing wireless performance can only be used by laptops and is not yet an option for smart-phones or tablet computers such as the iPad.
