A strong Wi-Fi signal everywhere… finally!
How’s your Wi-Fi holding up? Wireless routers used to only connect a computer or two, but with today’s smart homes and small offices, there’s a much larger wireless demand. Smartphones, voice-activated assistants, security systems, smart TVs & sound systems, smart thermostats, and more are all looking for a strong and secure signal.
So, what can you do to get rid of those wireless “dead spots” and dropped connections? The answer may be a wireless mesh network.
Haven’t heard of them yet? It’s not surprising, they’ve only been readily available since 2016 and have only just started making their way into homes and offices. They greatly improve Wi-Fi range and signal strength.
Why You’ll Want Two River Computer to Install a Wireless Mesh Network for You Right Away:
- Get Rid of Dead Zones
Do you have a corner office or basement that has a hard time getting a good signal? Things like concrete and brick walls can render Wi-Fi useless. A wireless mesh system uses individual nodes (or receivers) that can get around obstacles to provide a strong signal to every corner of your property.
- Expand Your Internet World
Wouldn’t it be nice to lounge in your backyard or courtyard and be able to work with a strong wireless connection? Would you like to stream the ball game while hanging out in the garage? Wireless mesh networks make it possible. You can expand your internet range to areas outside your home or office easily.
- Beats the Pants Off Extenders
If you’ve tried extending your router’s signal with a Wi-Fi extender, you know it can be hit or miss. Use the microwave, and suddenly your device loses the connection. Wireless mesh units work differently than extenders and give you a much stronger signal.
- Set Up is Quick and Easy (no wires!)
Wireless mesh units are small (about the size of a coffee cup or travel mug) and easy to set up throughout your office or home. Two River Computer can come in, perform a survey to see where you’d like to have your Wi-Fi signal reach, and have your new mesh network going in no time.
But what if I already have wires in my house?
If you’re lucky enough to already have ethernet wiring running from a central location in your home or office to multiple rooms that blanket the area you want to cover, we can install traditional Wireless Access Points (WAPs) to create a wired mesh network. The benefit of WAPs is that they are wired at the same speed as your router. So if you have 2 or 3 WAPs installed you’ll have blazing speed all over. It’s like having multiple antennas all broadcasting the same exact signal. And if you almost have enough wiring to cover the whole area, we can install a hybrid of wired and wireless devices to get what you need.
