Having Powerful Home WiFi in the Era of Coronavirus
Right now, we are all going through uncertain times because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Many people are working from home as a result, which means having a stable and reliable Wi-Fi connection is more important than ever.
Is your Wi-Fi powerful enough to keep working from home during the era of Coronavirus? With no certain end in sight, continuing your efforts to boost your Wi-Fi is important.
Let’s take a look at what is necessary to have powerful WiFi during these times and how to get it if you don’t.
Fast and reliable Wi-Fi is now a necessity.
In the “before times” fast and reliable Wi-Fi was necessary to enjoy your online activities and, for some, to work. But if things got spotty you could skate by. Not today. Today, reliable WiFi could be the difference between you and your income. Or, your online grocery order happening or going through.
To make sure your Wi-Fi is fast enough, you need to make sure your Wi-Fi signal is strong enough. They directly relate.
Full Wi-Fi coverage in your home is now a necessity.
If you only have solid WiFi coverage in one room or area of your home, that’s not going to cut it anymore. Not during times where we are asked to spend most (if not all) of our time at home. For convenience and sanity, making sure that you have solid WiFi in every inch of your space is a necessity.
If you live in a smaller space like an apartment unit, getting full WiFi coverage will be easy to do. But getting Wi-Fi coverage to every corner of your home may not be immediately as easy to obtain when you live in a larger home.
That’s when you can look into two things:
- The type of internet connection you have
- Using Wi-Fi boosters
Is it Better to have a Wired or Wireless Connection?
To answer this question depends on your personal situation. There are wired and wireless options for obtaining a fast, rock solid Internet and WiFi connection that reaches every corner of your home.
Wireless is the most convenient option because it allows you to roam free throughout your home. However, wireless is also the riskier option because it is most vulnerable to obstacles and interference.
Wired connections can involve costly re-wiring jobs in your home, but it doesn’t have to. Wired connections are the most stable because they are a direct connection between your device and router.
So, if you are a gamer or you have a job where you cannot risk interruptions, consider going wired. Or, consider powering up your wireless internet with a “wired” connection adapter like MoCA. (Best of both worlds.)
