How to Install Wi-Fi Signal Booster

Install an internet booster if you encounter issues with your devices in a dead zone. These devices are easy to set up and use and can boost WiFi signals for better speeds. All you require is a WiFi router, an outlet and the direction you’d like it to be pointed. Some boosters include additional features, such as an USB port to charge wireless devices.

How to Install a WiFi Signal Booster

A WiFi booster or range view extender is a simple device that can be used anyplace with an internet connection. It connects wirelessly to your router. It broadcasts the signal from your router to another location, so you can connect to the network from your backyard or in your basement. Make sure that you place it in a middle between the location where the signal goes away and your router and point it toward the area.

While a booster can improve internet speed, it’s important to note that it doesn’t improve your internet provider’s speed. This is because the speed you pay for is derived from your broadband service, and is not based on how far away you are from WiFi signals.

Water can also impact wireless signal fidelity. A fountain, aquarium or even a cup of coffee can affect the signal. Keep the WiFi booster and cellular amplifier away from any water sources.
