Mine's Fine In The Bathroom And That's All That Matters: Wi-Fi Strength Based On Location In House

wifi-strength.jpg

This is a jocular illustration depicting wireless internet strength based on your location in the house. As you can see, it always sucks where you need it most and is GREAT for your Wi-Fi stealing neighbors. Speaking of: one time I removed the password on my internet connection just to see if any of my neighbors would try to connect. Boy did they! Then I got hit with a $7-million lawsuit for all the illegal music and movies they downloaded. In hindsight it was a pretty shitty experiment.

Thanks to carey, who still uses a wired connection because she's tired of bombarding her brain with Wi-Fi signals. Right? I think they're lowering my sperm count.

There are Comments.
  • I use wired connections because I feel that if my internet starts screwing up, there's no one to blame besides my damn internet service!

  • I still have physical hook-up at my apartment (because I'm lazy). I had thought about converting it to wireless...now I'm not too sure.

    I still use the wire because I could give a fuck about other people

    You have a blueprint of your house already so you might as well use Ekahau Heatmapper, http://www.ekahau.com/products... and get some glorious results

    simple Solution. Put the router in your neighbors house

  • Back in college, I was staying in an apartment in a really crappy part of town. I couldn't figure out why my WiFi was so slow, and then realized that my ex-roommate had disabled the password on our router while he was there (I guess it was easier for him than typing it in? Who knows). As soon as I enabled it, the speed kicked back up.

    Later that day, I heard a knock on my door. It was my ghetto neighbor, who stood there twirling her nasty weave in her fingers -- I guess trying to act cute? who the hell knows -- and asked "Uhhh, yeah... we was wonderin'... could we have the password to your wireless internet? It kinda won't let us on anymore."

    I honestly didn't know how to react, so I just laughed and shut the door. If you can afford 4" nail extensions and whatever drugs you're obviously on to think that point-blank asking for the password would actually work, you can afford your own damn internet.

    Don't forget the big red zone that is the toilet.
