Work from home is the latest work culture that we all have been forced to follow due to COVID-19 breakdown. Our homes are overrun by technology amid lockdown. While adults are trying to cope up with their backlog of work on their personal computers, children are also trying to study via several apps like Google Hangouts, Zoom, and many more. It is quite disappointing to see the dining room table turning into an overgrown IT department.
If you have been working from home for all these weeks, then you must have realized that there are certain spots in the house where the Wi-Fi signals remain totally absent. If there are such spots in the house, then you need to find a way to eliminate them using the right devices. You have to understand that many issues stem from Wi-Fi dead spots, like everybody sitting near the router to get the best internet signals, and if that router is kept in your room, then everybody will remain there, disturbing your privacy completely.
If you want to overcome this problem, then you will have to use a WiFI Extender because this is the only device that can get rid of problems like ‘Wi-Fi dead spots’. Wi-Fi routers usually end up in the corner of the house because that’s where the cable comes in. Now, if you have a highly efficient router with the fastest internet service, you may not be able to get the Wi-Fi coverage everywhere because of the limited coverage.
WiFi Extenders come in all shapes and sizes, as some are large while others are small, but none of those things matter, as WiFi Extenders can easily spread the Wi-Fi signals to every nook and cranny of the house, provided it has 2-3 rooms because extenders too have limited coverage. It is very easy to set up WiFi Range Extender, and once the extender is set up, you will find a significant change in the Wi-Fi signals. You just need to plug the WiFi Extender into a standard outlet and rotate the antennas to pull in the signals from your current router followed by boosting it to the rest of the home. The process of setting up an Extender looks like this:
- Plug the extender into an outlet close to the router. Turn it on and wait until the power light comes on.
- After that, you need to connect your smartphone’s Wi-Fi onto the new WiFi extender followed by opening a web browser.
- After that, you need to create a password that will let you log into the extender. Then, you should select the Wi-Fi signal in your house that you wish to extend.
- Now, you need to type in your Wi-Fi password for the original router. A few seconds later, your Wi-Fi extender will be connected.
- You need to find a spot to plug in your new WiFi Range Extender, which should be away from the router.
- Extenders have an indicator light that lets you know about the placement of the extender whether it is too close or too far from the router.
- It is better to place the extender close to the router, but not beyond the edge of your current coverage.
That sums up the extender setup process and now, you will see all the dead spots being enlightened by the Wi-Fi coverage.
