A weak WiFi signal is a problem and is something that you need to fix. When a WiFi signal is weak your connection to the Internet suffers. Your weak WiFi signal causes slow connection speeds or no connection at all (dead spots). A weak signal can happen for a number of reasons:
- Your router is too far away from devices
- Physical interferences like thick walls, floors, or other appliances
- Too many people or devices connected to one network
- Weak signal being transmitted by an outdated router
How to get a stronger WiFi signal
WiFi, by its very nature, can be vulnerable to inferences, which weakens a signal’s strength and reach. WiFi boosters can help carry the signal further to reduce or eliminate interferences.
Here are some ways you can boost your WiFi signal:
- Make sure your router isn’t hidden or blocked by interferences. Your router should always be in direct line with your wireless devices. Keep it central and off of the floor.
- Check to see if your router needs a firmware update. An updated and protected router performs best. Always stay on top of updates.
- Use a WiFi booster. Specifically, a wired WiFi booster such as a MoCA adapter can improve your home network’s speed as well as your WiFi coverage.
WiFi boosters help to ensure you are getting the best WiFi coverage and Internet connection performance. It’s important to know how to give your WiFi signal a boost where and when it needs it.
There are both wired and wireless WiFi boosters:
- Wireless repeaters
- Wireless range extenders
- Wireless network extenders
- MoCA adapters (an affordable solution for most)
- Mesh WiFi (great for larger homes/spaces)
WiFi Boosters are easy to use and install and eliminate weak Internet, whether that is through Ethernet, MoCA, or WiFi. Looking to fix your weak Wi-Fi? MoCA technology is the way to go. You can enhance your Wi-Fi connection in every corner of your home with HT-EM4 MoCA adapters.
