How to locate exact Position of Wi-Fi Router

To locate the exact location of our Wi-Fi Router we have to figure out how far away we are from router. We can find this through Signal Strength Value. If our signal strength value is low, means it is ranging from -30dBm to -70dBm it would be alright but if its go beyond from -70dBm that means strength value is going high so Wi-Fi point is going out of our range. As from below screen shot, the Wi-Fi “Connect” is having Strength value -40dBm, which means that we are somewhere near the Wi-Fi point so just move little closer so that you’ll be at exact Wi-Fi’s location. This is how you can figure out the exact Wi-Fi location through measuring the Signal Strength Value of your connection.
