How to increase Wi-Fi range on BSNL Broadband?range

For a good wifi range, you have achieve the following objectives:
1. Place the router in a more centralised area inside the house, and about at a height of 1.7 to 2 metres. See to that there are no walls immediately to the router.
2. In some WiFi routers(like Netgear), the antenna is movable upto 180deg. It is basically to have spread of signals. If you keep the antenna uprite(90deg) with the base then you get a umbrella kind of spread and more horizontal distance covered and vice versa.
3. Try to reduce interference, like cordless phones. Many of us have smugglled/genuine cordless phones from US or which are made for US market. Many of the cordless phones of today operate in US and Canada the 2.4GHz frequency, which is the same frequency at which Wi-Fi standards b, g and n operate. This can cause a significant decrease in speed, or sometimes the total blocking of the Wi-Fi signal when a conversation on the phone takes place.
4. Even reflections of the signal from an adjacent mirror, or high concentration of steel(vessels), glass degrades the WiFi signals. So position router away from them.
5. Even the range depends on the quality and make of routers. The really good ones across the world are. All these have range of 75mtrs to 100mtrs.
