Wi-Fi too slow? We have a solution!

Wi-Fi is a problem everyone will be familiar with: For days, you have been looking forward to watch football with your friends, but when it’s finally time to turn on the match, the internet connection goes bad. Instead of relaxing and watching the game, you have to fight signal crashes the whole evening. You can’t turn to gaming sessions, either, if the internet isn’t working.

 

Unfortunately, poor Wi-Fi reception is the rule rather than the exception in many households. There are many reasons for this, from external sources of interference to the position of the router. Small changes often contribute to improving Wi-Fi reception. If none of your countermeasures succeed, the signal can be extended to even out-of-the-way rooms with Powerline adapters.

 

Product overview

Poor Wi-Fi reception: possible causes

In theory, modern Wi-Fi routers can have ranges of several hundred meters. However, these ranges are only in the open and under optimum conditions. The reason is that living spaces are full of sources of interference, some of which can greatly impair reception and weaken the Wi-Fi signal. Among the factors that can negatively affect your Wi-Fi are:

Structural conditions ...

...such as walls and ceilings, solid masonry walls, and underfloor heating can have a damping effect on the Wi-Fi signal.

Signals ...

...that are transmitted by a neighboring Wi-Fi system can step on the Wi-Fi signal to a certain extent.

Electrical devices ...

... speakers, microwaves and devices using Bluetooth frequencies cause additional interference so that there are rooms without internet.

The Wi-Fi solution

If these factors apply to your situation, we recommend devolo Magic adapters with Wi-Fi that extend the signal through the power line to other rooms and provide Wi-Fi there.

* Powerline speeds up to 2000 Mbps. Wi-Fi speeds up to 1200 Mbps. Actual data throughput and data over distance will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building material and construction, and network overhead, result in lower actual data throughput rate.

How does Wi-Fi work?

In order to optimize Wi-Fi range, it is important to understand how the technology works: Wi-Fi is a local wireless network that connects devices to form a local network. If there is a link from the local network to the internet, you have worldwide connectivity. A router usually has an integrated Wi-Fi access point for wireless networking. Since Wi-Fi is a so-called shared medium, all devices using Wi-Fi also use the same bandwidth.

 

Depending on the type of router or Wi-Fi access point, it uses the 2.4-gigahertz or the 5-gigahertz frequency band. Some devices support both ranges. Different maximum bandwidths can be achieved, depending on the Wi-Fi standard. Among the common standards are IEEE 802.11 b, g, n, and ac. Depending on its settings, the router occupies certain channels within its frequency band.
