KTLA  – Are you having problem with dead spots in your wifi coverage?

WiFi is convenient because it gives us the freedom to move about while getting work done, but only when it works. Sometimes it doesn’t reach every room.

Here are some devices that will boost the range of your base station.

Gadgets mentioned:

Amped Wireless High Power Wi-Fi Range Extender

NETGEAR – Wi-Fi Booster for Mobile Range Extender

Powerline Network Adapters

How to figure out your dead spots

  • Use a tool like the Wi-Fi Analytics Tool from Amped Wireless to figure out where the dead spots are in the house.
  • Take an open space near the dead spots with an electrical outlet to install a WiFi range extender.
  • After plugging the extender into the outlet near the dead spots, check  online to set up the extender to latch onto the current WiFi signal in the house.
  • Set the extender as a new WiFi point.
