Abstract: The purpose of this study is to predict the indoor propagation of 5 GHz Wi-Fi networks using the FDTD method and to give suggestions on placing the access points or transmitters in an indoor environment. The basic theory of electromagnetic wave propagation and the free space loss is introduced in the literature review. Also, an empirical model which has been used for predicting the coverage of 2.4 GHz wireless network is studied. This work presents a 3d CAD model with materials assigned. The model includes two bedrooms, one study, one storage room, one living room, two washrooms and one kitchen. The computer software XFdtd is used in this study to simulate the propagation of wireless network. The receivers and surface sensors are used to collect the signal strength and magnitude of electric field. Four common locations of placing the transmitter are compared using the results of simulation. According to the comparison and discussion, recommendations for placing the transmitters are given in the dissertation.
