Tips on Boosting your Wifi Signal
The final question on the 9pm Tech Wednesday call was a man asking about better WiFi for his large home. I also have a large home and had similar problems. I tried extenders and they were very unreliable and dropped constantly. I researched alternatives and went with Google Home WiFi. This product creates a mesh network over your entire home using small white “hockey pucks”. Each one is actually a router.
I pay for 100Mbps from Spectrum and the furthest corner of my property (outside the home) now gets at least 90mbps. Inside furthest point hits upwards of 114mbps. I have 4 units in the house to cover everywhere. A three pack is around $250 and the units are about $115 each when purchased separately. One unit plugs directly into your modem and the others just need power. Each one also has an available port to hardware a device. The entire system takes about 10 minutes to set up. The best tech investment I ever made. One other point about Google Home WiFi. It does not increase your speed it just makes your entire bandwidth available from each router. Each unit covers approx 1500 s/ft.Here is a link to a short video explaining the product - watch now!
