Alright, so I don't live in a mansion, but don't live in a townhouse I live in a normal house. 4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms a garage yeah.
I have been experiencing the worst WiFi experience in my house since I was a kid. When I go upstairs, my Wifi connection drops to 2 bars on Windows or sometimes doesn't work at all. Then randomly it will go back to 5 and work like a charm for half an hour, and stop again. People have explained that changing channel frequency will work, so I tried that...didn't work. Then I tried buying a Wireless N adapter to connect and still the same thing happens! I've had a Microsoft router, Linksys and Shaw, and all three, be it on Wireless B/G/N show similar connection issues.
Does anyone have an idea as to what might be blocking the signal? A friend suggested maybe my phone was running on the same frequency and they were cancelling out? But again I've tried almost every single channel.
Do I really have to go out and buy a $200, 60 antenna router?! I mean I don't mind but I don't like spending more money than I REALLY have too.
