I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread for those pesky little tech problems.
I'll bite with a new question:
Does the weather have anything to do with internet (WiFi) connection?
I sit outside on my screened-in porch whenever I use my laptop. Normally the connection is speedy fast, no lag in videos and a full 4 bars on my connection icon.
Sometimes, when it storms or is overcast for a few days, my connection gets reeeally slooooow and may show 1-3 bars on the icon. Occasionally I'll get a "You're not connected to the internet" prompt. On days like this I'll have to go inside, restart Chrome, get a full 4 bars then go back outside and sometimes it will last for quite a while and sometimes it will immediately go back down to 1-2 bars.
So I'm thinking the answer is "Yes." Weather does affect internet connection, but I've been told that I'm wrong.
Can anybody explain this? Or give me some help on how to fix this problem?
For what it's worth, my modem is in my basement at the front of my house. I'm sitting ground level at the back of my house. I've looked into moving my modem to ground level, but they want $50 to do that and say that I should not do it myself. At the same time, on sunny days the connection is great so why move it?
