Do you need a brand new mesh router, or will a simple Wi-Fi range extender suffice?<br>
<br>

Suppose, for some reason, that you're spending a lot more time at home these days. You're working, you're homeschooling your kids, you're video chatting with friends and family, you're binge-watching Rick and Morty -- and you're pushing your home's Wi-Fi network to the limit. Maybe you've become painfully familiar with those limitations -- including the spots where the signal drops off and your device can't hold a speedy connection. What can you do? <br>
<br>

<br>
<br>

I've already outlined some of the initial steps you can take to boost your connection without buying anything, but in a lot of cases, eliminating dead zones like those will require a hardware upgrade. Your best bets: Wi-Fi range extenders, or maybe a mesh router with its own, range-extending satellite devices called nodes. Simply put:<br>

Wi-Fi range extenders are the best cheap option for smaller spaces. And the best model I've tested thus far is the TP-Link RE220, Saham DUTI - https://www.sensory.id/berita/saham/DUTI which can be had for as little as $30 or less -- if you can find it in stock.<br>

Alternately, mesh routers are best for whole-home coverage. We have a handful of recommendations, including Amazon's Eero and the AC1200 version of Netgear's Orbi, as well as the Asus ZenWiFi AX as a worthy upgrade pick. But our current overall favorite is the Google Nest Wifi.<br>

That's the quick overview, but here's how I got here.<br>
<br>

<br>
<br>

Like real estate, wireless networking is about three things: location, location, location. That's because wireless access points can only put out a network signal that's as strong as the incoming wireless signal from the router. The best bet is to take a look at your speed test data and find the room closest to your dead zone with a strong signal from the router. That'll ensure that the extender is able to put out the best possible network, and that it'll be able to cover your dead zone - http://www.shewrites.com/main/search/search?q=dead%20zone .<br>

There's a lot to think about as you work to upgrade your home network, so here's a quick rundown of what you should know.
