Enjoy seamless high-speed Wi-Fi all around the home.
A home devoid of any dead spots is the ultimate dream
The need for reliable Wi-Fi coverage is constantly on the rise. With more and more we can do online, more devices being added to the mix, and often more people trying to connect at once, Wi-Fi can often become strained. In larger, or heavily furnished, houses this strain can often become worse as the router stuggles to reach all areas of the property. But what can we do about this? How do you go about improving your home Wi-Fi?
What Is Whole Home WiFi?
Whole-Home Wifi, also known as a Mesh Router, is made up of a main router and two or more access points, also known as nodes. Whole-Home Wi-Fi systems act as a way to blanket your home with Wi-Fi, spreading your Wi-Fi signal over a larger area. These devices act together as a single wireless network, all using the same SSID and password, and can connect up to 100 devices at any time.
How Does Whole Home WiFi Work?
To set up your Whole Home WiFi system, you will first need to connect your Mesh router to your ISP broadband, just like with a traditional router. Next it’s time to place the nodes! Nodes are designed to further broadcast the Wi-Fi signal around the building, so are beest to be strategically placed to eliminate deadspots.
Depending on the size of the building, you may need more nodes. Smaller houses may only need one node, where as larger houses may need to set up multiple throughout their home. Fortunately, there is no limit to the number of nodes you can add, making this a practical solution for any home!
Compared to range extenders that creates additional separate networks, Whole Home Wi-Fi devices use a single unified wireless network to enable you to jump between nodes seamlesslessly.
Why Do You Need Whole Home WiFi?
In today’s virtual world, Wi-Fi coverage is vital. Now with the expectations that have been built to constantly be able to connect with others, update our social medias, play games online with friends and stream media in any form, we begin to feel lost when this access is gone. Add in the the increased popularity of working from home and reliable Wi-Fi coverage becomes more important than ever.
Forunately, Whole-Home Wi-Fi systems offer reliable coverage regardless to the amount of devices connecting to it. With multiple devices fighting for priority, your internet will run slower to try to compute all the requests it’s receiving at once. With additional access points to boost the coverage anywhere in the building, and to take the strain off of one singular router, your Wi-Fi signals will be stronger than ever.
Wi-Fi problems aren’t always due to the size of the property either, often being caused by signals struggling to penetrate dense materials. With a traditional router, you may suffer from weak signals or frequent drops in signal the moment the signal tries to pass through walls, shelves, or floors. With the addition of nodes, you can ensure your Wi-Fi coverage finally reaches the dead spots for perfect Wi-Fi connection anywhere in your home!
Even without signal problems to face, you may want to opt for a Whole-Home Wi-Fi system for the extra control you have over your network. With apps to control the system, parents can get extra control over the Wi-Fi for additonal security features! Mesh Wi-Fi allows you to turn off the internet for specific users, as well as blocking inappropriate websites, to help monitor your child’s internet habits.
