The roommates are leeching off OP's WiFi from the sound of it, or the router is based in their room. Either way, it sounds like OP should invest in a lock so they stop being not only idiots but also stop violating OP's privacy.

Technically traveling through any barriers such as walls or floors of a building could diminish the signal strength, but I seriously doubt 1 door is making that much of s difference.

I suppose it depends on what the door is made of as different materials are likely to have a different effect on signal strength. However, if it's a standard wooden door I doubt it makes much difference.

It actually would make a difference. However, the difference would be negligible unless the door was made from something heavy duty (like a safe door).

I assumed this was because OP spends all of their time in their room on the internet, thus "hogging" the Wi-Fi, so the roommates thought they would be funny by attempting to "set it free".

it actually is quite effective when the signal strength is not very strong to begin with or the walls are made of concrete and the door are heavy duty as well. your roomie just had a funny way of saying it.
