Why My Wi-Fi Did Not Work in Workshop

I had had enough problems with aluminum chips on the notebook that controls the mill, and he cardboard separator I was using to keep mill and notebook isolated kept falling over, so I moved the notebook to a slightly different position, and wi-fi again works.  I think the blade on the chop saw was blocking the signal.


  1. I am a firm believer that mouse farts will affect WiFi. I know that if I am in my back porch, when the wind picks up, the WiFi starts acting up.

  2. I have the opposite problem: my DSL phone line comes into the shop, but the wi-fi was very weak in the house, about 150' away. Installed a booster in the bedroom window, as it could "see" the shop window where the router lives. Wi-fi is now quite usable in the house.
