    Ok,I live across the road from my pal who kindly lets me use hit wireless network,he roughly lives around 10-15 metres away and that an average distance for most wireless adapters,now on a normal fine day with clear skies i have a signal strength of 2 with a rare 3,out of 5 bars on a low 2 hi graph,and over the period of 2-3 weeks i have realized the day it rains,the signal is 5..ALWAYS and stays high for hours,even after the rain has passed..now i dont know that about wireless,but does it interact with rain particles or someshizle,or is it simply because for some reason human activity changes on the internet when it rains which leads to internet speeds on the network to get faster..inno im high.


    preech to me clever people

    I'm no expert but I think that the rain during the storm is allowing photons to pass through the medium of the air without much distortion or to be interfered with other different particles in the air. Even after the rain the air stays humid so there are still water particles in the air, I don't know if water is equally good at conducting photons as it is electrons.

    PS Thats me just off my head there, don't know if there is any truth to it.

    I don't know how the physics works, but certainly, on rainy/moist days (West London here) my TV and radio reception gets buggered. Probably something complicated to do with wavelengths...
