Poor wireless reception can be the bane of anyone’s existence. A reader asked, “Will a WiFi adapter work on a Microsoft Surface 3, which has a USB port? Do you know of anything like this that will work on an iPad and iPhone?
A USB WiFi adapter will work with a Surface 3 for two reasons: 1: A Surface 3 is a PC running the full version of Windows and 2: It has a USB port. Whether or not it will improve your WiFi reception will depend on what speed you’re paying for and the speed and strength of the signal your router is broadcasting. If your Surface 3 is picking up the full speed put out by your router, an adapter won’t be able to improve it.
There’s nothing you can attach directly to an iPhone or iPad to boost WiFi reception, but you could purchase a WiFi extender to extend the range of a WiFi signal in your home. As along as your reception problems aren’t caused by something structural or interference from another device, this can greatly improve your connectivity.
