Getting reliable and fast Wi-Fi around the entire house can be a challenge. Maybe there’s a dead zone in an upstairs bedroom where your kids want to stream a movie, or maybe the signal drops in the backyard. Wi-Fi has become as indispensable as electricity in many homes, yet Wi-Fi performance can be temperamental. Given all the devices, metal appliances, and architectural features that can cause interference in the typical house, even the most powerful Wi-Fi router can miss some spots.
A wireless repeater or range extender is a device that helps computers maintain stronger wireless signals by taking in signals from routers and remitting them. The primary advantage of using a wireless repeater is that it can improve wireless signal strength without having to move a computer or router. The further a computer is from the wireless router it connects to, the weaker its wireless signal will tend to be. Weak signals can result in slow or intermittent connectivity. Placing a wireless repeater at some point between a computer and the router it connects to can enable the computer to receive a stronger signal, leading to better performance while surfing the Internet.
Another benefit of using a wireless repeater is that it can help you reduce the impact of obstructions that may impact your wireless connection. Physical objects can weaken wireless signals, and solid metal objects like heavy doors, filing cabinets and appliances can have an especially detrimental impact on wireless connectivity. Placing a repeater in a location where few objects rest between it, the router and the computer can allow signals to travel to the computer without passing through many objects. As much we need to be connected to the Internet anytime and anywhere – such as the porch in front of the house, out by the pool in the back yard, or maybe in a the garage. In this case, you can install a Wi-Fi booster in the part of your home that’s closest to the outdoor area where you want coverage, and you won’t need to use your up cellular data when you’re outside.
Wi-Fi boosters and Wi-Fi extenders primary function is to fill in the dead spots, but they can also be used to add faster speeds and even new features to your Wi-Fi network. By adding a booster or extender to your existing network, you can upgrade to the latest Wi-Fi technology, including 802.11ac speeds, without the trouble of replacing your Wi-Fi router. If your router is older and doesn’t support AC, then you’re not getting the fastest Wi-Fi speeds possible; however, an 802.11ac Wi-Fi booster will add these blazing fast speeds to your network. In addition, some Wi-Fi boosters/extenders feature advanced Wi-Fi technology to increase the efficiency of your network, allowing it to handle more devices and traffic. We recommend you to look for features like dual-band Wi-Fi, beamforming, Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO), and companion apps.
