Why you lose the Wi-Fi signal at an airport and how to recover it

With a commercially coined name in August 1999 such as Wi-Fi, courtesy of the brand consultancy Interbrand, Wi-Fi (name with which it is collected in the RAE) is a mechanism for connecting electronic devices wirelessly.

Airport WiFi

Devices enabled with wi fi (such as a personal computer, a smart TV, a game console, smartphone or a music player) can connect to the internet through a wireless network access point, although in reality the origins of this technology can be traced back to the beginning of the 70’s even.

If you are one of those who travel often, or it is your turn to catch the flight back home because the holidays are over, surely that of connecting to the WiFi that airports usually offer has happened to you – from 30 minutes to unlimited- but you lost it instantly.

For a moment you were enjoying a decent wireless connection without having to spend the 4G / 5G data of the phone -which in case of being outside the country or the continent the cost doubles-, and suddenly you no longer have it. The reason? Probably because you have moved from an access point and you have not refreshed the connection.

La red MESH NETWORK

Most airports nor have a single WiFi point, but one red Wi-Fi call Mesh Network composed of many access points to cover the entire space between the check-in counters, security controls, common areas, the restaurant area, the shops and the boarding areas.

The first time you connect to a WiFi point, you are doing it to the access point of the area you are in, but if you move to another you may not lose the signal, but by moving too far from your access point the speed will drop , although it is possible that you directly lose the signal.

Airplane mode

The way to be able to always be connected within an airport without losing that free WiFi that the facility offers us is by collecting the signal to go from an access point to that of the new area to which we move. Exactly, it can be a burden because we would have to be repeatedly restoring the signal, but there is a simple trick for the smartphone to do almost all the work:

  • Simply, when you see that the Wi-Fi signal is dropping and the speed is very slow, activate the airplane mode of the mobile a few seconds and remove it. In this way, the smartphone will automatically search for the next airport Wi-Fi access point in the area where you are.
