Having fast internet connection is one of the most common necessities nowadays. Even so now that everybody is advised to stay at home due to the ongoing pandemic. Your internet is your best friend! You’ll want this best friend to be very effective all the time.

According to The New Daily, Australia’s Wifi is “embarrassingly slow” as it placed the fourth nation with the slowest internet. Certain devices are necessary to make for a better internet connection. Some of the most common devices are wifi extenders and wifi repeaters. The job of these devices is to make your internet connection better.

On top of having these devices, you need a reliable electrician to set up these devices. You still need relevant electrical work to make sure your internet improves. Gordon Powers is available for that. We have licensed electricians that offer services for internet connection concerns.

Wifi Extenders

Wifi extenders are electrical devices that do as its name suggests. It extends the wifi connection to other areas in your home. There are many available models in the market. There are varying brands that provide wifi extenders depending on your need. These devices connect to the network through wire connections. Ethernet cables and ports in some of the electronic devices work with wifi extenders. 

The wired connection is a guarantee. Wherever you place the device, there is internet available in the area. The device is physically connected to the source (via cables). This immediately extends the coverage within the area the wifi extender is in. Unless the cables, device, or internet service provider is defective, there’s no reason a Wifi extender won’t work.

Wifi repeaters

Wifi extenders are widely and interchangeably used with wifi repeaters. Although the difference is, wifi repeaters tend to be wireless in nature. In contrast to wifi extenders, the wireless connection of wifi repeaters give it a slight disadvantage. Wifi repeaters are more portable and accessible. With regards to any improvement to the wifi itself, there’s no guarantee it will be good.

Wifi repeaters rely heavily on the wireless connection. The connection inside your home is prone to disruption and worsen with many things. The wireless connection makes the wifi repeater susceptible to many interferences at home. You have a thick wall surrounding some rooms? A wifi repeater tends to have poorer performance.
