Don’t waste your time. It’s time to upgrade your WiFi at home
Despite having a good plan contracted, it is possible that we need to improve the WiFi at home for various reasons. Thick walls, load-bearing walls, a large house with several floors, remote rooms… There are many reasons why we may find ourselves with slower areas or, directly, with no signal at all.
Fortunately, there are several ways to improve performance. We can start by placing the router in the best possible location, find out where the interference is caused or change the channel our router broadcasts on.
In addition, there are some additional equipment that can help us to boost our coverage. These are the main ones to consider if you want to improve your WiFi at home:
- WiFi signal extenders. This is one of the quickest, simplest and cheapest formulas. They are small devices that plug directly into a socket. Among their main properties is that of extending an existing network.
- Mesh WiFi network systems. They have been in vogue lately to improve WiFi at home and offer the best performance currently available. They consist of multiple nodes capable of communicating with each other to establish the ideal network parameters for each specific moment. They consist of a main node and other nodes that form the mesh. The result is a uniform network with the same parameters and passwords.
- PLC adapters with integrated WiFi. Another really simple system that uses the home’s electrical network to bring the wired connection to the different rooms. It consists of a first PLC adapter without WiFi that is connected via a cable to the router and different nodes that will be distributed throughout the rooms. Thus, the main node will be responsible for sending the data signal through the home’s electrical wiring.
