COMBAT WI-FI DEAD SPOTS AT HOME
Quick and easy solutions to your at-home Wi-Fi worries
Traditional routers aren’t always able to reach the furthest corners of your home, resulting in Wi-Fi deadspots. The number (and thickness) of walls between you and your router is usually the main culprit, but a Wi-Fi extender could solve your problem.
The Velop Whole-Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (from $299.95), for example, is built to deliver a fast, fullstrength signal. The modular design means you can place nodes in any part of your home, creating a blanket of WiFi coverage.
Also try TP-LInk’s AC750 Wi-Fi Range Extender RE210 ($69), with built-in signal indicator and Ethernet port. The plug-in D-Link DAP-1320 ($69) is even smaller, yet delivers up to 300Mbps for whole-home coverage, while the Netgear EX3700 ($79) has speeds of up to 750Mbps and an extra Ethernet port for connecting wired devices to your extended network.
