5 Ways to Boost Your Home WIFI

One of the most common things our customers want assistance with is improving the coverage and speed of the WiFi router in their homes. No matter how fast your home’s connection is to the Internet, there are a number of factors which can make your in-home experience miserable.

In this article, we take a look at 5 simple things you can do to improve the experience you have with your WiFi Router

1. Upgrade Your Router

If you’ve been using the same WiFi router for years and years, it’s probably time you invest in some new equipment. What you want to do is make sure you get a router with the following basic specifications:

Wireless Standard 802.11ac
Antennas 2+
Frequency Channels 2.4 & 5Ghz
MU-MIMO Yes

2. Location, Location, Location

If you find there are areas in your home in which you continually experience a poor WiFi experience, you may want to look at moving the WiFi Router to a more centralized location in your home.

WiFi speeds diminish over distance. This means the further away you are from your WiFi router, the slower your experience will be. And if you start adding walls, plumbing, electrical conduit or materials like brick to the equation, your signal and experience will diminish even quicker.

Try and find a centralized location in the open for your WiFi router. Placing the router in a cabinet or in a closet is not recommended.

3. Choose The Right Band

Most modern WiFi routers support both the 2.4GHz 5GHz bands. While the 5GHz band can support higher speeds, it doesn’t penetrate obstructions or have the same ability to go far distances. And conversely, although the 2.4GHz band can not provide the same top-end speeds, it is much better at pushing through walls and can cover greater distances.

4. Upgrade Your Device

There’s an old saying that reads “It Takes Two To Tango.” And with WiFi speeds, the adage couldn’t be more on point. People often complain that their speeds are slow despite having the latest and greatest WiFi Router. It’s important to look and see what type of device you’re using and that it too is capable of taking advantage of the newer WiFi router capabilities.

Older smartphones, laptops, tablets and streaming TV devices often will only support an older, slower WiFi standard. So be sure that the device on the receiving end has the ability to support both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz channels.

5. Go Mesh

If none of these tips are able to improve your WiFi signal across your home, you may want to look at investing in one of the newer, mesh WiFi systems. These systems utilize multiple smaller devices that you place throughout your home along with some fancy software that ensures the device you’re on is always pulling the strongest (and fastest) signal.
