Home wi-fi connectivity is fast-changing as the technology that we routinely rely and depend on evolves. To fully use and enjoy your newest smartphone, home device or those streaming media favorites found on Amazon, Netflix, Hulu or Spotify, you want to be able to receive strong, fast and reliable wireless signals throughout your home. Most of us have typically relied on wireless routers and, perhaps, a second router that acts as a range extender. It’s not unusual, though, to find frustrating weak or dead spots from room to room with such a system depending on the physical characteristics of the home. If you’re a heavy personal wireless user or rely on high-speed system availability for a home office or business, no or slow reacting response is unacceptable.
A newer and, perhaps, more robust wi-fi system is now available through a variety of technology communication companies. Popularly referred to as “mesh” systems, this linking protocol generally uses one main router and then as many satellite modules as needed to achieve the necessary coverage required for that home or dwelling’s layout and size. These added modules or nodes as they are also known, communicate both with the router and link between themselves. This mesh-type configuration assures a continuous string of “helping” communicating devices that enable signals to be as strong at the furthest point away from the wired router as the nearest. Need more or better coverage? Just add another module where coverage is not up to your expectations. Talk with your favorite tech guru. For a few hundred dollars, you can make sure your latest, greatest devices have someone or something to talk to.
