How to best locate your WiFi?


A PhD student in physics has mapped his own apartment and applied a so-called Hemholtz equations to model the electromagnetic waves of the wi-fi device on his blog.

He found out that the best spot for his wi-fi device was directly in the center of his apartment as what we always thought about.

His experiments implies that even in a distanct room you could still get some signals by shifting your laptop to catch it.

There are some comments in his blog that wants him to turn his equations into a WiFi mapping web service but he thinks the idea is unfeasible due to the processing time and assumptions that may be required.
