How to Set up a Powerful Home Network
Share it with your networks
We’ve all been in this situation before:
You call your Internet service provider, get your modem and router set up, and get an Internet connection. So easy! Wait…now your connection is flaky and really slow. What happened?
It’s not enough to set up your Internet and hope that you will have a strong, fast and powerful home Wi-Fi network. It takes a more work than that. You don’t need to know technical terminology, but you do need to know the right steps to take and tools to get the job done. That’s exactly what we are going to cover.
What makes a home network “powerful”?
A powerful home network is designed for peak performance. There is no such thing as a bulletproof home network, especially if it is a wireless home network. But you can do things to make it pretty close!
At the very least, a powerful home network:
- Has a strong Wi-Fi signal.
- Provides fast Internet connection speeds.
- Offers coverage throughout your entire home (even the hard to reach spaces).
- Is a secure and managed network.
Making these investments makes all of your Internet activities better. A Wi-Fi network that performs well makes online gaming as lag-free and fun as it should be. It doesn’t interrupt your favorite Netflix show, kick you out of your online class or out of your video work meeting. And, it will keep you (and everyone connected to the network) safe.
So, how do you do it?
How to boost your home Wi-Fi network
There are a handful of ways to boost your home network so that it is faster, stronger and safer. Here are a few places to start:
- Start with your router placement.
To boost your Wi-Fi, make sure your router location is central and off of the floor.
- Use Wi-Fi boosters.
Next, try out Wi-Fi boosters. This can be anything from a MoCA network extender to a MoCA network adapter. They are wired solutions that make your Wi-Fi better.
A powerful home network isn’t a given. It takes some effort but these are things you can do yourself! So, if you’re currently experiencing network issues that have you stumped, you can learn more about MoCA Network Adapters and WiFi Extenders on ScreenBeam’s Complete Guide to MoCA.-
