I'm not sure exactly what changed, but over the past few months, my WiFi signal has gotten so much weaker and it fluctuates way too often. Literally, one second my strength is Excellent and the next it's Low. It's so frustrating. What can I do to strengthen my signal? FYI it's an open connection so no one needs a password to tap into it. Should I password protect it? Will it make a difference?

I'm not great with hardware, but FYI:

We have two routers on one computer: a Linksys and TPLink and a Netgear router on another one.

Hi -
Personally, I would first contact my Internet Service Provider for details on any local problems, and "how to secure your connection".

Next ensure your Antivirus program is fully updated and scanning, just to be sure there are no problems -

Regards -
