Every so often, we often notice the wireless strength is stronger or has more bars for an outside, unsecured wireless network as compared to our own wireless. Logically, this does not make since when looking at the obstacle of "distance" upon signal strength of a wireless. For instance, it is reasonable to say the router within our own wireless is "closer" to the wireless pc's as compared to the transmitting router on an outside wireless. There must be other factors which perhaps has an even greater effect than even distance.
Any shared thoughts to this question will be appreciated. It will be enlightening to review any possible rationales for this observation.
