Stay Connected With a Wi-Fi Extender
Consider buying a Wi-Fi extender if you're tired of fighting a losing battle against weak internet. Why suffer through a bad signal when you could enjoy reliable reception. There's nothing more frustrating than your favourite show buffering mid-scene or an interrupted overdue FaceTime with friends. Whether you have multiple computers to service in an office or your home simply needs a Wi-Fi booster – high-speed internet is en route!
Which Wireless Extender is Best?
Consider the following factors before choosing a Wi-Fi range extender:
- Purpose - A strong, reliable connection is required to support multiple smart home devices.
- Usage - A business environment requires a more powerful extender compared to a small apartment.
- Installation - Plenty of devices require minimal setup; simply the touch of a button for some.
- Design - Other models feature a user-friendly touchscreen design or a compatible app.
Do You Need a Wi-Fi Extender?
Even brand new wireless routers can lack strength. It's all about location, location, location! Find an optimal spot for your modem first and if the signal is still weak, then it's likely you need a Wi-Fi booster. Here's a handy tip – video call a friend who is standing next to the router and move throughout your home until you begin losing signal. Weak areas are determined by deteriorating call quality which make for a prime spot for your new wireless range extender, which poses the next question...
How Do Wi-Fi Range Extenders Work?
Every wireless extender serves the purpose of boosting internet speed. There is little difference between extenders, boosters and repeaters. They all essentially build a connection with the router in order to amplify the existing signal. Some require new login details and others can connect to the original network. The impact should be instant, allowing you to connect your phone, laptop or iPad immediately from anywhere in the house.
