COM­BAT WI-FI DEAD SPOTS AT HOME

Quick and easy so­lu­tions to your at-home Wi-Fi wor­ries

Australian T3 - - HOME -

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.
