Install a Wi-Fi booster if you encounter issues with your devices in an area that is dead. These devices can boost existing WiFi signals to give you better speeds. They’re also easy to install and use. You’ll only need an WiFi router to plug it into an outlet and a power source to connect it to and the direction you wish it to be to point. Some boosters come with additional features, such as an USB port to charge your wireless devices.
How to Install a Signal Booster
A WiFi booster or range extender is a basic device that can be used anyplace with an internet connection. It connects wirelessly to your router. It rebroadcasts the signal from your router to a location nearby that allows you to connect to the network from your backyard or basement. Place it half-way between your router and the area where you lose signal and make sure you point it in that direction.
It’s important to be aware that while a booster improves internet speed, the speed offered by your internet provider isn’t increased. The speed you pay for is dependent on your broadband service and not the distance you are from the wireless signal.
Water can also affect wireless signals of a high-fidelity. A fountain, an aquarium or even a coffee cup can hinder the signal. You can prevent this from happening by keeping your WiFi booster and cell signal amplifier out the reach of water sources.
