Improve Wireless Signal

Hello! I have some wireless connection from my college through the dormitory where i am living. The connection is really strong in the living room but weak in my room. Is there any way to extend the signal or enhance it in my room?

I don't know the type of router that they are using since it is locked in the building. Though i was wondering if there is a way through an antenna or something.

Please if you can describe to me the procedure in details i would be grateful.

Thanks in advance for your help!


You can buy a Router that can be flashed with the DD-WRT firmware, this firmware has an option to repeat a wireless signal thus extending your range.

From experience, you will need a powerful router in order to make the signal strength worth using.

  • You can also just buy a dedicated repeater, but the college might not appreciate EITHER of these approaches. – Shinrai May 10 '11 at 14:11
  • Yes that's right, mainly it states in the Terms that a router can not be used. – Sandeep Bansal May 10 '11 at 16:29
