Intermittent WiFi and poor range

Hi. Recently my VM WiFi in my study/room has deteriorated. I've had issues with both my phone and laptop with relatively weak signal and it just cutting out on a fairly regular basis. My housemates haven't had the same issue. Any suggestions for what to do?

Re: Intermittent WiFi and poor range

Welcome to the Trials & Tribulations of Wi-Fi

The problem with Wi-Fi is that it can be brilliant at breakfast time and useless by lunchtime and you haven't changed anything, BUT, something, somewhere has changed, then you can spend hours and even days trying to find a fix for something that can be totally out of your control.

If you remove all the internal walls, electronic and electrical devices, metallic pipes and conduits and wrap the whole building in a thick lead shield you will have a good chance of getting decent Wi-Fi from a VM Hub.

Many people have accepted that the VM Wi-Fi is poor and have purchased third party equipment that is much, much more powerful than the VM supplied kit and once set up have wondered why they waited for so long.
