Learn about the factors affecting your WiFi signal and how WiFI mesh can help improve experience

Philippine Daily Inquirer, October 21, 2020

While the internet was always perceived as important, its impact to our lives has never been more highlighted than in the situation we are currently in. Who could have imagined that we can effectively work, learn, and play without going outside of our homes, right? It’s this reason why the internet has become more than just an added expenditure but a necessity for every household.

What’s common to every internet user in the country (and frankly, the world) is experiencing connection troubles such as slow speed and dropping signals. More often than not, these are caused by simple reasons that require equally simple solutions:

Distance from the router

The location of your router can affect your internet speed. That’s why it is best to place your WiFi router as close to the center of your home as possible and away from corners so that you can experience better reception throughout your house. Keep it elevated and also move devices that can compete for airwaves away your router.

Too many connected devices

When everyone else in the family is using the internet for work or online classes, chances are your internet connection can get slower. To boost the speed, you can try switching to another channel to reduce interference. A WiFi scanner is useful to easily identify the least used channel in your area.

WiFi signals being blocked by walls

Physical obstructions like walls, doors and appliances can possibly block the signals from your router from reaching some areas in your home.To get rid of this dilemma as well as the two mentioned above, it is best to invest in a mesh network.
