New stupid question . . . RE: Internet signals.
I have a lap-top and my favorite place to use the internet is on my enclosed porch. The router/modem/whatever is in my basement.
I would say that 95% of the time my lap-top internet usage is zooomin. Works like a charm.
Then there are the times when I'm in my usual place, and internet access is so very slow, even though it still shows 3-4 bars on the internet icon. (It can take up to 5 minutes to call up an internet site.)
If I bring my laptop inside (maybe a difference of 7 feet) I can sign onto whatever site, then bring my laptop back outside and internet is, again, zooming. I can browse different sites with great speed.
Stupid question . . . why does this happen?
