Wi-Fi is supposed to provide pervasive internet access, so you can pick up your tablet, laptop or phone and browse from any place you fancy in your home. Sadly, it doesn't alway work like that.

In the far end of my apartment, in an armchair in the bedroom, my Wi-Fi is patchy at best. It probably works about 50 percent of the time. That probably has something to do with the fact that the signal has to battle its way through the entire length of the place including the kitchen—and all the appliances in there, including a washing machine which is inline—to get there.


More embarrassingly, there is zero Wi-FI reception on my toilet. I know I can fix all this—I just never get round to it—but I'm keen to know: where are your Wi-Fi dead spots?
