Question by Brian M: Do Wi fi Signals Travel better when it is really cold?
I notice a change when it gets cold.

Best answer:

Answer by Akshun
Technically yes, colder temperatures provides for less reflection, and refraction in the air.

If you would like to look in to this phenomenom further there is alot of this type of study regarding sattellite communications.

    This review is from: WD My Net Wi-Fi Range Extender – universal dual-band wireless network range extender (Personal Computers)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    This Wi-Fi Range Extender worked out great for me as I knew what to expect. I deal with these types of devices at work and I have reasonably good knowledge in networking. But for the benefit of others let me share how to make this work painlessly if your other router at home does not have WPS button.

    Firstly, connect the Wi-Fi range extender and your laptop with the included ETHERNET cable. The router before initial setup has it’s own DHCP server which will give your laptop an IP address in the 192.168.1.xx subnet. Now as soon as you fire up your browser it will present itself with a login screen. In my observation the Wi-Fi Range extender had an default IP address of 192.168.1.230 The default Login name is “admin” and password is “password” (Please Ignore the quotes when you type that into the login screen).

    The GUI based screens will guide you thru’ the process of setting the Wi-Fi extender on your network. It will search your current Wi-Fi networks in your area and obviously you need to choose your “own” Wi-Fi network you want to extend the range. Once the security credentials and SSID of your existing router is supplied by manually entering this into the GUI screens the Wi-Fi range extender setup is complete and it will reboot.

    From now on(Important), the Wi-Fi Range extender will work as a “client” (Wirelessly) to your existing Wi-Fi network and will also serve any other devices that come in the range of the router with a stronger signal but will give out DHCP leases based on the same IP subnet of the existing router in your home – Make sense?

    TIPS:
    1. Place this Wi-Fi Range extender in such a place that it still has good signal from your existing Wi-Fi Router.
    2. You can tweak your existing router’s Wi-Fi signal output and actually lowering the signal output and using this to extend it further has better throughput results as this can easily overpower your existing signal.
    3. Use Wi-Fi Analyzer for Android or inSSIDer application for your PC to find out more about your network signal strength before and after adding this Wi-Fi range extender to your home.
    4. Once you have configured this Wi-Fi Range extender it remembers it permanently until you reset it. Which means you can switch it off and use it only when you want the range to be extended where needed – Super nice!

    PROS:
    [+] Excellent hardware build quality you expect from WD
    [+] Consumes very little power and stays cool as the Wi-Fi Enclosure is well ventilated no fan no noise.
    [+] Super easy to setup if you have WPS button on your existing network and also allows manual configuration.
    [+] Puts out strong signal around the house and extremely portable to extend the range of your existing Wi-Fi network.
    [+] Signal strength LEDs can be turned off and the power LED and Wi-Fi Signal LEDs are dim enough to avoid glare.
    [+] It assumes the same SSID and SSID can be hidden and clones the same Wi-Fi security protocols of the existing Wi-Fi network.
    [+] Can also work as a regular “Access point” (Need Ethernet cable to your router and needs a “Mode” change from GUI)

    CONS:
    [-] Documentation is weak and for non-networking people can be a nightmare
    [-] Works in 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz bands but not simultaneously
    [-] There are no advanced fine tuning on the Wi-Fi signal it produces, It decides the channel and signal output automatically

    WD venture into networking looks promising with this new Wi-Fi Range Extender. It is a solid buy for people who have been struggling with poor Wi-Fi range in their house and this tiny Wi-Fi Range extender is an excellent product.

    Full Four stars from me.

    Cheers!

    Quick setup and works well over my garage., November 28, 2012

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    My garage has a heated room over it but my Wi-Fi didn’t make it there without this range extender. I set this up manually because my router doesn’t have a WPS button. Basically, you connect the include RJ45 cable to you PC. If your SSID is hidden (like mine is), you type that in as well as the password. The extender then gets an IP address from the router and you can disconnect the cable permanently.

    At this point, I put the range extender as close to my garage as possible. I took my laptop out to the garage and I now have an excellent WiFi connection.

    The documentation is virtually non-existant. I’ve set these types of devices up numerous times so I knew what to expect. If you haven’t done this before, just get the SSID, password and encryption type (WEP for me) for your router and connect it with the wire to your PC to configure it.

    This is a decent device for the cost albeit made in China. The documentation could be better however.

    Easy Setup and Worked Well, March 21, 2013

    This review is from: WD My Net Wi-Fi Range Extender – universal dual-band wireless network range extender (Personal Computers)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    I’m a geek. Setup was easy. I’d suggest finding a geek because the documentation is weak. I installed it using WPS and the manual geek way. WPS was very simple but if you can’t do it that way because your router doesn’t have a WPS button, borrow a geek or go here for the manual: […] . Installing it without the WPS button was non-trivial. I was lucky enough to have multiple laptops because when I tried to find it on my MacAir I had no luck. You will see the device on this IP 192.168.1.230 and access it with user: admin and pass: password.

    I must admit I didn’t read the marketing page close enough. (My bad, not the vendor’s fault) I expected it to work on 2.4 and 5 GHz simultaneously and it doesn’t. For my use this would have been handy but it’s not a big deal for most people. The distance it retransmitted the signal was very good. I live in a pasture and it had great distance. In the direction where there is only one wall between the WD and outside I hit 200 feet watching a Netflix movie on my Mac Air. As you go through walls expect to drop at 25-50 feet. If you have to go through a bathroom or kitchen wall it’s worse. But this is because of the frequency of Wi-Fi. WD can’t do anything about that. The signal strength LED’s are handy for positioning the unit.

    Geek suggestions: Make sure you turn up your security on your wireless network before you install this. And make sure your wireless network is working well before adding this device. If you are working near your router and your signal drops out on occasion you probably have some sort of interference. Try adjusting the channels to grab a different frequency on your router. You can also unplug all your electronic devices and power them back on one at a time. And I’ll throw this out there…I just helped a friend of mine. He had is DSL modem stacked ON TOP of his wireless router. Guess what…that’s going to hurt the signal strength of the wireless router. So make sure there are no electronics blocking your router or this extender.

  4. No. Especially not indoors. Whether it is a cold day in winter or a hot day in summer, the signals at 2.4GHz and 5GHz don’t travel any “better” in one condition or the other to any significant or even measurable degree. Consider it a coincidence.

    What the other answer is referring to is, for example, suppose you have a long distance wireless bridge link, one end up on a mountain and the other down in a valley. Cold air up on the mountain and warm, humid air down in the valley. This air stratification causes RF signals to refract (bend) such that the RF line of sight is different from the visual line of sight. This is not a concern with standard wireless access points with omnidirectional antennas and much shorter distances than a wireless bridge link.

    Likewise, wind has no effect on RF signals and neither do rain or fog or snow unless it’s very heavy rain or fog or snow. Or if there’s several inches of snow on a rooftop for exmaple. Smog on the other hand contains chemicals that can cause the RF signal to refract. Again, this is more of a concern for long distance outdoor links.

    So is there something else that’s happening in the warm versus cold weather that might cause this coincidence? Like having windows open versus closed? Tinted windows use aluminized mylar and reflect RF signals for example. Maybe you run an electric heater when it’s cold in the vicinity of the access point, that would create a small but significant temp difference (like the air stratification above) that could cause some refraction.

    There’s got to be something else causing it, not just the cold. I suggest walking around with a laptop and doing a site survey.
