WiFi Signal: How to Increase Its Strength

Learn > WiFi Boosters > WiFi Signal: How to Increase Its Strength

You need a strong WiFi signal to have strong WiFi. If your signal is weak everything slows down and a reliable Internet connection is either intermittent or nearly impossible.

 

How to Increase your WiFi Signal Strength

Here are 5 things that can boost your WiFi signal strength, making it stronger so it reaches further and makes your Internet perform better:

  1. Restart your WiFi router
    Try restarting your router first.  Turn it off for 30 seconds and then back on. Sometimes, a simple reboot is all your WiFi network needs.
  2. Move your WiFi router
    Make sure nothing is blocking or is surrounding your router. It should be up and off of the floor, centralized to your most-used devices, and not hidden inside of a drawer or behind other objects or devices.  Your WiFi router needs a clear path to your devices to send its strongest signal.
  3. Adjust your WiFi channels
    Most WiFi routers use two wireless channels (think of them as “lanes”) to transport your Internet traffic within your home.  These two channels are either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency channels. Your WiFi network can have traffic congestion when there are too many devices connected to one of these channels. To adjust your wireless channel, look up the printed manual for your WiFi router and follow the instructions.
  4. Use your Coax TV wiring
    Yes, you read that correctly.  Use your coax TV wiring to create a very fast and reliable WiFi network backbone that will give you extremely fast speeds and reliability for your WiFi signal.  Up to 90% of homes in the US have coax TV wiring running throughout their walls and it can be converted to Ethernet over Coax.  Ethernet over Coax, also known as MoCA technology, forms a bigger pipe for your network backbone, which means, any Ethernet device that you connect to it, such as your WiFi router, will increase its performance.

Hitron’s HT-EM4 MoCA adapters can help increase the strength and the reach of your WiFi signals to every room in your home.  Where ever you have a coax outlet or connection, you can connect your MoCA adapter and an Ethernet device.

Looking to increase your WiFi signal strength? MoCA technology is the way to go. You can enhance your WiFi signal connection to every corner of your home with HT-EM4 MoCA adapters.  Want to learn more about WiFi boosters? Please check out Hitron’s Learn Page.
