The Wi-Fi operates optimally at an RSSI of 70 or greater. If the RSSI indicates a value lower than 70, consider the following alternatives:
- Add an extender or access point to the local network, boosting signal closer.
- Move into an area with less interference.
- Consider switching to the LAN module for a Cat 5/5e/Cat 6 connection in areas of poor signal strength.
If the Wi-Fi signal is not as strong as you think it should be, consider possible sources of interference. This can include the following:
- Neighbors' Wi-Fi networks
- Household electronics such as cordless phones, baby monitors, or microwaves
- Physical interference such as drywall, brick, or stucco
