Unless you have a bad connection or problems with your provider, wired broadband systems won't give you too much unpredictable trouble indoors. Wireless broadband is a different story. Everyday items could make wireless connection a horror in the house. Items that contain water are bad for signals. So keep your computer away from fish tanks, water heaters and even bathtubs. Plus, interference could come from other signal senders in the house. So avoid placing your computer near microwaves and cordless phones. And last, keep surfing by keeping your system away from any large metal lighting fixtures.
