Most wireless routers are still working on 2.4 GHz frequency and whereas modern 802.11ac routers supports both 5GHz and 2.4 GHz. New devices automatically connect to 5GHz Wi-Fi and old device connects to 2.4 GHz. Upgrading your router connection to 5GHz is an important factor to improve wireless connection as if offers many advantages. Some of them are:

  • 5GHz is a less cluttered part of spectrum
  • People in your surroundings may be using 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, hence signal interference in 5GHz is reduced
  • 5GHz offers 23 non-overlapping channels whereas, 2.4 GHz offers 3 non-overlapping channels
  • Old 2.4 GHz wireless devices like baby monitors and cordless telephones won’t interfere with 5GHz Wi-Fi

Thus, keeping all above aspects, upgrade to 5GHz wireless routers which in turn will improve home Wi-Fi signal.

Increase Coverage with a Repeater

Repeaters are used to extend Wi-Fi coverage and thus are useful for covering large homes or home with many nooks and corners where signal cannot reach. Sometimes, you may even require more than one repeater.

Visit any store like Amazon, where you will get networking equipment’s and search for Wireless repeater or Wireless range extender. Buy the one which is compatible with your router for better internet signal. Such kind of devices is easy to use and small in size. You just need to plug into an electrical socket like a night light and functions similar to repeaters.

Stronger Antenna

Instead of using a repeater, you might buy a strong and powerful antenna for your router. Such antenna can boost the range of Wi-Fi signal, covering maximum distance and improving signal strength.  Before you buy antenna, make sure that it is compatible with the connector on your router. Even you could make use of DIY antennas made from old aluminum can to some tin foil.

Modern Wi-Fi Standards

Devices using Wireless B was the first successful Wi-Fi standard launched in early 2000 and later replaced by Wireless G in 2003. Some modern routers do support old 802.11b devices, but it slowdowns Wi-Fi connection affecting the performance.  If you are using Wireless B devices then it is time to replace them with modern device.

You can connect 802.11g device to an 802.11n network and it will work absolutely fine at wireless G speed. Check your old Wi-Fi-enabled devices and make sure that they support 802.11g at a minimum.
