New WiFi protocol WiFox boosts networks up to 700%

If you have a cheap wireless router in your home, you know how frustrating they can be, partly because you get what you pay for, but also because the inherent speeds and intermittent connectivity of WiFi aren’t usually anywhere near the quality of a hard, steady ethernet line. However, engineers at North Carolina State University have created a way to boost the throughput of WiFi networks up to 700%.

The new method is software-based, which means consumers wouldn’t have to buy a new router, and the update could simply be rolled out to existing hardware. There’s no word yet on a release, but the study is being presented at the ACM CoNEXT conference, which takes place just one month away, from December 10-13, so hopefully we’ll find out soon enough.
