Is Your Home’s Technology Keeping Up?
Are you beset by slow connections or ‘dead zones’ in parts of your home or yard? Are you tethered to a certain area of your home to make calls because there are little to no ‘bars’ when you walk away? Does downloading a file or webpage take forever? And are you frustrated by frequent interruptions while the movie you’re streaming stops to ‘buffer’? It’s probably not the fault of your Internet service provider (ISP).
With today’s ‘smart’ homes, more and more devices demand the bandwidth of your ISP, and while they continue to provide better, faster service, other factors such as home electronics, walls, and distance can weaken the strength of the signal from your router.
If your router is very old, you may want to upgrade it, but if that is not the case, or a new one doesn’t solve the problem, a Wireless Access Point to boost your Wi-Fi signal will.
A Wireless Access Point, or range extender, extends your router’s wireless signal throughout your home and yard, giving you complete and stronger Wi-Fi coverage. Once this simple appliance is set up, you can connect all the devices throughout your home, including your Smart phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, gaming consoles, and TVs. Multiple members of the family can then enjoy streaming their favorite movies or music without buffering issues, even when used simultaneously, and you can move freely throughout the house while on a call.
While this sounds easy enough, there are a lot of variables to consider, such as your current bandwidth and upload/download speed, where the problem areas are in your home and what might be the cause, whether or not you can easily hardwire a device, or if an Access Point is the solution. And then… which one? There are several on the market, and which you choose should be based on your needs. If you don’t have the time or the patience for techno-babble, and you want it to simply work, Ambiance Systems can help. We’ll come to your home to assess your situation, see what is/isn’t working for you, make recommendations, and even install and configure the necessary appliances to enhance your Wi-Fi signal.
