Everything You Need to Know About WiFi, Connectivity and Signal Deadspots

Wireless network has been around for some time now, but there are numerous misconceptions about whether broadband internet and WIFI are the same.

Wireless network technology is here to stay and the need for super fast connectivity is increasing daily. Given the level of dependency on WIFI for business and home use, it's an amazing wonder how we managed without it all this time.


WIFI and broadband internet are actually two different technology concepts although in most cases, both comes from the same router. Internet is often referred to as broadband and this is supplied by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) via the phone or cable services (such as Virgin Media). WIFI on the other hand, is a radio wave signal that is generated by a router or access points within your home or office. This means most people who only have physical network connection from the non-WIFI router will have internet but not wireless connectivity.


WIFI Dependence and What This Means for Us

These days, wireless network is powering a whole host of stuffs within offices and homes, including iPads, phones, tablets, laptops, refrigerators, iOT hardware, CCTV and many other types of gadget. Imagine having an environment where you can communicate with the external work and get things done wire-free. Imagine what it was like with all the cables running around the numerous measures that had to be put in place to mitigate the risk of trips and falls. For many people, the presence of wireless network is truly amazing and for others, there are concerns about security and health factors.

In this blog, we will focus on wireless networking as a solution for homes and business and not delve into the other areas mentioned above, although these may become posts within their own right - would be interesting to see the developments.

Wireless network signal is internal to your premises service and is really your responsibility and not that of the service provider. This means once internet is available within your home or office, you have total freedom to boost wireless network signal throughout your home or keep it as is.

With more and more devices supporting WIFI connectivity, user demands for reliable whole home wireless network is on the increase and with the expert help from a wireless network specialist in London, you too can have WIFI connectivity everywhere. This means, you could have a hybrid network comprising Ethernet cables and access points for seamless internet connectivity throughout your office or home. 


How Does Wireless Network Operate?

By default, the WIFI signal generated by most routers do not provide sufficient signal for full home wireless coverage. This can be seen in situations where there is patchy connectivity or frequent drop-outs within your office or home. When this happens, it is very likely that dead-spots are present in areas of the building close to those trouble points.

It is common to experience technology frustrations in areas where wireless network is well but nothing you do seems to work. This is especially true for locations where it's not possible to move your existing workstation setup to a different location that is closer to the router.

To overcome this challenge, some users resort to home network plugs and wireless boosters to improve WIFI connectivity and to a fair extent, these do work. The challenge comes in when there are larger properties and these boosters are not able to create consistent virtual network circuits using the power line (electrical mains), or the signal is interrupted frequently by noise of high intensity, resulting in unstable network performance.
