Question [Q] Moto G Wifi Signal

Hi,
new user here but long time lurker
I have a question about the WIFI antenna on the Moto G. Does it get a good signal far from the router or with walls in between? My house has three floors and my router is in the first one. Even on the second one I have problems connecting with my Sony X10 Mini running MiniCM7. My brother with an LG Optimus L3 can connect from anywhere in the house for example. Is the Moto G WIFI better or on par with the L3?
Thanks a lot.

I don't know about the L3, but for the phones that I've used in the past the G is not so good - not terrible neither, but not as good as an iPhone or Lumia Windows Phone

It's OK, however it depends which WiFi router You are using.

Moto G has the best WIFI and the best GPS, I ever had on any other phone, this includes S3, Note 2, Galaxy Nexus and N5.
Can't say this will be the same for you though.

If I remember correctly, most Wi-Fi antennas broadcast out in a (mostly) horizontal direction. That could account for not getting good signal on the 3rd floor.

You have to put the router on a cleanly position because router anthena are onmidirectional. In anothar way you have to put reapeater is the best option. You hev to search more information about wireless network.

Oh, I have. But since the my brother's LG L3 is working just fine everywhere in the house and it's a very cheap phone I figured there's nothing wrong with my actual wireless network configuration
