How to Install Wi-Fi Signal Booster

Install a Wi-Fi booster if you are having trouble using your devices in a dead zone. These devices boost existing WiFi signals to improve your speeds, and are easy to install and use. All you require is an WiFi router, an outlet and the direction in which you’d like it to be pointed. Some boosters offer additional features, like the USB port for charging wireless devices.

How do you install a Signal Booster

A WiFi booster, or range extender, is a simple device that is easy to use and connects wirelessly to your router and can be used anywhere you have an internet connection. It broadcasts the signal from your router to a different location that allows you to connect to the network in your backyard or basement. Place it halfway between your router and the place where you lose signal and place it in the direction you want it to go.

It’s important to be aware that although a booster boosts internet speed, the speed offered by your internet service provider isn’t increased. This is because the speed you pay for comes from your broadband service and is not dependent on how far away you are from a WiFi signal.

Water can also affect wireless signals with high fidelity. A fountain, an aquarium or even a coffee cup could affect your signal. Avoid this by keeping the WiFi booster and cellular amplifier from any water sources.
