Today internet is a tool we use to almost everything, and now in these days of confinement which serves as a tool to continue working and maintaining relationships with family and friends, as well as to distract and hang series and looking for·movies or playing online.
Often confused with the Internet connection WiFi home, they are two different concepts. We have a good internet connection with good bandwidth but poor WiFi coverage at home, that we will bring down the quality and speed of service alone·required and can be a problem if you have multiple devices connected and scattered house.
Below we have some tips to improve your WiFi signal at home:
1. On locate the router?
We note that all the walls, ceilings and doors of our house, influence the WiFi signal. then, cabbage·Placement of the router or router is essential to enjoy a good connection, For this reason it is best to install·Install it in a central location of the house, or the point of the house where we connect more. In a medium-high height and without having elements that clog. Many times we want to hide behind the TV or inside a cabinet and we are already getting the first barrier.
2. Position antennas
The ideal is co·Place the antennas perpendicular, one horizontal and one vertical. With calculated a few years ago Apple engineer, radio reception is maximized when both the client device and the access point or router WiFi agree polarization (horizontal and vertical).
3. Avoid interference
Surely you noticed that your home comes the sign of other connections nearby. Today's routers are configured so that signals do not disturb and do not occupy the same frequency, but if you are curious and want to see, have different apps to make it as WiFi Analyzer and programs as inSSIDer.
Using a channel that is free from interference, WiFi signal quality will improve, and with it the connection speed, not having interference errors.
4. Choose from 2,4 GHz i 5 GHz
If you have a dual band router, it is also desirable to know when to connect your devices to the side of the 2,4GHz or 5GHz. Each of them has different characteristics, with which it is worthwhile to differentiate between one or the other as required. This is a comparative table:
|WIFI||2,4 GHz||5 GHz|
|CANALS||14 canals||25 canals|
|INTERFERENCIES||more interference||less interference|
|MAXIMUM sPEED||less speed||more speed|
|COVERAGE||more coverage||less coverage|
|STANDARD||IEEE 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n
(B, G and N)
|IEEE 802.11a, 802.11n, 802.11ac
(A, N, AC)
Also well differentiate the needs of connection. For example, use network 5 GHz devices or services that require high speed and low latency applications such as streaming or online gaming, and leave the network 2,4 GHz for mobile devices or for Web browsing and e-mail consultation.
You can identify the 5GHz network because there will be a 5G at the end of the SSID or network name (usually identified with the customer number).
5. Connect everything you cable
It seems simple advice , but all the teams that are close and router can connect by cable, you better have them for WiFi. So you can have all the bandwidth available and at the same time, WiFi network download devices, with which you will improve performance.
It is highly recommended for devices and services that require low latency and connection quality, and are usually near the router, such as smart TV's or video consoles, and also to applications and content streaming and also video-conferencing Teleworking, to avoid cuts in talks.
