Have you lost signal walking through your home?
While a standard Wi-Fi router covers an average-sized house, sometimes the Wi-Fi isn’t as strong in some areas or, even worse, it doesn’t reach a room at all.
Aptus know that no Wi-Fi is just not an option in a modern busy home and has solutions to ensure you can enjoy seamless connectivity throughout your home.
What is causing your Wi-Fi issue?
If your house is oddly shaped, has thick walls or floors, or is bigger than average, you’re likely to experience Wi-Fi range issues. Stone, concrete and metal walls and floors can all cause Wi-Fi range issues.
You may have hardware issues. The hardware (i.e., the router) may be outdated or may need to be reset. Equally, the router signal might be blocked by interference devices. Yes, this is a real thing.
Some common household devices cause interference with Wi-Fi signals, leading to poor coverage or range. Here are some examples of interference devices:
- Baby monitors
- Thick doors
Whatever the cause, if your Wi-Fi isn’t covering the whole home, don’t worry. This is where mesh technology saves the day!
How does it work?
A mesh Wi-Fi system connects your router to a series of devices that carry the same Wi-Fi signal throughout your house. These devices all connect to the same network and can be easily accessed using the same password. Mesh systems allow you to access Wi-Fi in every room of your home with the same performance strength as the original router.
Unlike a range extender (i.e. Wi-Fi booster) Mesh devices can be placed anywhere in your home and work as part of your current network. You can place them in any room and move them when and where you choose.
