  • Winter Wi-Fi Prep With Solid Signal



    How’s your winter Wi-Fi in your home? With the cold weather coming, it’s best to make sure that precious signal is available throughout your house.

    Winter is coming or it’s already here in many states north of the Mason-Dixon line. For example, my kids already have had one snow day here in Michigan. With cold weather and the very real threat of frostbite looming in the frigid air, children spend more time indoors during this time. For many of them, this isn’t such a bad thing… as long as they have unfettered access to their favorite games, movies, music, and entertainment. So, are the Wi-Fi services in your home up to snuff? If not, you might need to get a new router or a Wi-Fi extender.



    You Might Need a New Router

    A new router is one way to spruce up the Internet connection in your home. A router is the small device between your modem and your computer. Its purpose is to take information form the modem and deliver it to your computer. What’s more, your router can take information from several networks and deliver it to many computers. This lets you work on your desktop while your kids are using tablets in their rooms on the same Internet connection.

    You might need a new router if:


    • You want to run two Internet-connected devices in your home at the same time.

    • You want to use your laptop throughout your home without a wired connection.




    You Might Need a Wi-Fi Extender
    While a router acts as a gateway between your home and the Wi-Fi of the outside world, extenders help you get more Wi-Fi into your home. These devices take your existing Wi-Fi signal, amplify it, then transmit the boosted signal throughout your home. A Wi-Fi extender sends signal to the far corners of your home or office, including different floors, and can even extend coverage to your yard. These devices are also known as Wi-Fi boosters and Wi-Fi repeaters.

    You might need a Wi-Fi extender if:


    • You’ve tried moving your router to a central location in your home but did not see a change in coverage.

    • Your router is a newer upgraded model but still cannot offer you the coverage you want.
