Improve Your Home’s Wi-Fi Signal in Five Minutes

Wi-Fi is just radio waves, and many things can cause interference. But a strong Wi-Fi signal can give you faster performance and better coverage distance, so it’s important to properly position and configure your router for optimal signal strength. I’ll show you how; it just takes a few minutes. Point the Antenna Up Routers generally have physical antennas that are adjustable. The antenna often comes pointed horizontally to fit the router inside its box. For maximum signal strength, position your router’s antenna vertically, pointing straight up. If you have two antennas, you won’t get better performance by pointing them in different directions. Position Your Router Properly Consider where you put your router. If you have a large home or office, place the router close to the center to maximize coverage. If you position the router at one end of the building, you may have poor (or no) signal at the other end.But keep in mind that if you already have your router positioned at one end of your home and the signal strength is just fine on the other side, you don’t need to move it. For maximum coverage, the router should also be high up. Placing it on the floor is the worst location possible – place it on a high shelf, if possible. Don’t place the router on or near large metal objects, such as metal shelves or filing cabinets. These can block the signal. Metal or stone walls can also block Wi-Fi, while wood and plaster walls won’t cause any problems. You might be able to root out other sources of interference. For example: microwave ovens, 2.4 GHz cordless phones, and 2.4 GHz baby monitors all have the potential to interfere with a Wi-Fi signal. I’ve personally experienced a Wi-Fi signal to my laptop dying every time a microwave oven was turned on. The microwave oven was in direct line-of-sight between my laptop and the router. The solution? Move any one of them so that the microwave isn’t in between. If you get interference from a cordless phone, you might want to purchase newer 5.8 GHz cordless phones; these workon a frequency band other than Wi-Fi and don’t cause any interfere. If you’re in an area with many different Wi-Fi networks — such as an apartment complex or even just a house close to other homes — your neighbors’ Wi-Fi networks are probably interfering with yours. To minimize this, move your router further away from the other Wi-Fi access points, if you can. For example, if you’re in an apartment and have a router in the corner of your room, your neighbor’s router might be right on the other side of the wall. But the best thing you can do is switch to a different Wi-Fi channel. You access this option on your router’s settings page — check your router’s instruction manual for instructions on how to do that. (If you don’t have the instruction manual, you can almost certainly find the instructions online.) Locate the Wi-Fi channel option in the router’s web interface and change it to a different channel with less interference. It might take a little experimentation to find the best one, but you can get help choosing a Wi-Fi channel using the Wi-Fi Analyzer app for Android phones and tablets, which will monitor the Wi-Fi networks near you and recommend the least-cluttered Wi-Fi channel for your network. Unfortunately, similar apps aren’t available for iPhone or iPad due to the limitations Apple places on app developers. That’s it — all you really have to do is position your router well and choose the ideal Wi-Fi channel to optimize your network. Of course, buying a new router that supports modern, improved Wi-Fi standards may also offer you a signal strength and speed boost.

Pengenalan Handphone AP Set & Original

Tahukan anda, kebanyakan model handphone sekarang telah mengeluarkan AP set yang mirip dengan original. Diingatkan anda supaya berhati-hati terutama semasa hendak membeli handphone baru. Terdapat beberapa perbezaaan antara handphone original dengan handphone AP set. Mari kita kongsikan bersama maklumat mengenai handphone ini memandangkan masih ramai lagi belum mengetahui akan hal ini. Produk AP Set (Authorized Product) mempunyai kualiti yang sama 100% seperti Original tetapi, anda perlu tahu bahawa dia bukanlah pengedar yang diiktiraf oleh pengeluar handphone tersebut. Misalnya Nokia, Asia Mobile, uTNT dan VSCOM merupakan di antara pengedar AP Set bagi Nokia tetapi mereka tidak diiktiraf. Untuk original pula, Zithron dan Avaxx adalah pengedar Nokia yang sah. Perbezaaan Handphone Original vs AP Set Pertama, dari segi warranty. Handphone original akan mendapat warranty dari syarikat pengeluar utamanya sendiri contohnya seperti Samsung mendapat warranty daripada Samsung Malaysia Electronic (SME) dan iphone dan ipad mendapat warranty daripada Apple. Jangkamasa warranty bergantung kepada syarikat terbabit. Selalunya warranty bagi handphone original adalah 12 bulan atau 24 bulan. untuk handphone AP pula, warranty adakah daripada syarikat yang mengedarkan handphone terbabit. Jadi warranty tersebut tidak akan diterima oleh mana-mana syarikat pengeluar utama. Sebarang kerosakan handphone AP mestilah dirujuk kepada syarikat atau kedai yang mereka beli. Kedua, perbezaannya adalah dari segi harga. Harga AP Set adalah jauh lebih murah berbanding original. Bukan sikit tau tapu beratus jugak la perbezaan harga kedua handphone ni. Tapi AP Set selalunya tak dapat Free Gift seperti original dapat contohnya Galaxy Y AP Set takkan dapat 4 Free Back Cover. Kalau anda tanya pendapat saya, saya akan beli handphone AP set. Mengapa? Kerana kualitinya adalah sama 100% dan cuma beza pada warranty sahaja. Saya nak tanya, adakah anda akan pergi ke Samsung SME contohnya jika anda pandai jaga handphone anda dengan baik? Sayang rasanya kita membazir, kalau kita pandai jaga nescaya handphone tu akan kekal lama dan takkan mudah rosak. Harga AP Set murah la, jadi dah ada penjimatan kat situ. Kalau AP Set murah RM200 daripada original? Teruja kan? RM200 tu boleh buat macam-macam la. Kalau nak makan pula, boleh kenyang lebih seminggu. Cara Nak Kenal AP Set / Original / CLONE 1. Original warranty 1 tahun kebiasaannya bagi (Samsung,Nokia,Sony Ericsson, iPhone Etc) kecuali HTC dan Blackberry mempunyai 2 tahun warranty dari Brightstar / Brightpoint. Kadnagkala warranty Samsung juga ada 2 tahun bagi model yang baru keluar tetapi hanya boleh didapati di Samsung sahaja. 2. Kalau clone, pastikan anda check internal memory. Kebiasaannya internal memory handphone Clone adalah 2GB – 4 GB sahaja. Jarang ada 8GB dan sangat jarang untuk menjumpai 16GB. Contohnya Original Samsung Galaxy S3 adalah 16GB manakala S3 Clone yang banyak dijual yang mempunyai rupa yang mirip dengan S3 Original adalah 4GB sahaja. 3. Pastikan ada sticker Original di belakang tempat letak battery. Kebiasannya akan terdapat 1 stocker berbentuk bulat. Contohnya Samsung = Sticker bulat ada logo samsung dan bersaiz kecil sahaja.

Android 5.0

Google’s recently released Android 5.0 mobile operating system is currently running on fewer than 0.1 percent of handsets, according to data released by the company. The new software, code-named ‘Lollipop,’ was made generally available November 12. Carriers are currently rolling Lollipop out to consumers, according to their own schedule. The limited uptake of Android’s fifth version so far underscores a wider problem in the mobile world: Fragmentation. It took Windows Phone 8.1, for example, nearly half a year to make it to the 50 percent market share mark. And as Wired notes, Apple is seeing slower adoption of its new iOS 8 than some expected. Current reports indicate that Lollipop is seeing increasing over-the-air updates, which could quickly push its market share numbers higher. Google was not immediately available to comment on the current Lollipop figures. However, even if Lollipop manages to grow its share of the Android install base through the end of the year, it will likely face an adoption ceiling. Currently, the most popular version of Android is KitKat, or Android 4.4. It commands 33.9 percent market share. There are six versions of Android at current tip that have more than 7 percent market share, for reference. Given that, it seems doubtful that Lollipop itself will do much better than the 30 percent mark, unless something in its ecosystem changes. Looking backwards, we can compare the current rollout of Lollipop to the KitKat release. The first time KitKat hit the charts, it had 0.01 percent market share. The next month, that tally inched up to 1.11 percent. The next month, 2.94 percent. So the initial incline can be shallow for new Android builds. Operating system fragmentation makes the work of developers more difficult. If the install base of phones that you’re building for not only have a wide array of screen sizes, but also firmware, building an app that will work for the majority of users can be difficult. This applies to all three platforms, of course.
