No matter if you’re trying streaming a movie from the basement or follow a step-by-step guide on how to install laminate flooring, it’s vital that your WiFi signal can move from one area to another. To eliminate WiFi dead zones and increase the speed of your internet connection you’ll need a WiFi signal booster or extender.

WiFi signal boosters (also known as wireless range extenders) take a weak Wi-Fi signal and amplify it before broadcasting to other areas. This effectively expands the WiFi network’s coverage area and allows users to connect to the internet without filling their data plans or being disconnected.

The most popular type of WiFi booster is a powerline Wi-Fi extender that works by utilizing the electrical wiring of your home to rebroadcast the WiFi signal and improve your internet speeds. It can be installed quickly and easily by plugging it into an electrical outlet close to your router or in the area that you require an additional boost in WiFi.

There are a variety of different WiFi signal booster models that differ in terms of appearance, range and power. Some are designed for use as wall or desktop plugs, while others have larger antennas that can improve WiFi coverage in many rooms. Some devices can also serve as a Wi-Fi extender, or repeater. Select the one that best meets your requirements. The device should be placed in a place that is not cluttered by walls or appliances.
