hello guys, just want know is there any way to use ESP 8266 in low wifi signal strength more efficiently without using additional hardware???? . I am facing data packet missing and lag issue in the network due to low wifi signal strength. Kindly help me.

@Rahul-b62 If the radio is not receiving a quality signal, of course you are going to get lag and missing packets (this isn't esp8266 specific issue, it happens with PCs also). external antenna that is directional is your best choice (some modules have the external antenna connector).
The signal strength by default is the strongest I believe (see WiFi for the call to change the signal strength)
