Install an upgrade to Wi-Fi if you encounter issues with your devices in an area of dead. These devices are easy to use and set up and can help boost WiFi signals to improve speeds. You’ll only need a WiFi router to plug it into an outlet for power to put it in and the direction you want it to point. Some boosters also have additional features, for instance, an USB port to charge wireless devices.
A WiFi booster or range extender is a basic device that can be utilized anywhere with an internet connection. It connects wirelessly to your router. It broadcasts the signal from your router to another location, so you can connect to the network in your backyard or basement. Make sure to place it in the middle of the area where the signal disappears and your router, and point it towards the area.
It is important to understand that although a booster boosts internet speed, the speed offered by the internet service provider you use is not increased. The speed you pay for is determined by the broadband service you use and not by how far you are from a wireless signal.
Water can also impact wireless signal fidelity. A fountain, aquarium or even a coffee mug can hinder the signal. You can prevent this from happening by keeping your WiFi booster and cell signal amplifier out reach of any water sources.
