Improve your WiFi experience at home

August 05, 2019

With RSAWEB fibre you can get ridiculously fast internet at home. But, to make the most of those speeds, you need to make sure that your WiFi can keep up with your line speed. We’ve already got some tips on router placement to improve your WiFi at home. If you’ve already made sure your router is in a great position and unobstructed but are still experiencing dropped signal or dead zones in your home, read on below to find out how to fix it. 

It can be very frustrating to leave a room and suddenly see everything on your phone or laptop slowdown because your reception has dropped as you’ve entered a WiFi dead zone, even worse is when you don’t realise that you’re no longer on WiFi and end up using all your mobile data on a season of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. 


Searching for signal in the far corners of your home? 

If you’ve got areas in your home with little to no signal and your devices are struggling to connect, strategically placed range extenders will make sure your signal is spread throughout your house to eliminate WiFi dead zones. 

TP-Link AC1750 Wi-Fi Range Extender (RE450)

In simple terms, the TP-Link AC1750 connects to your existing WiFi network and extends your coverage by amplifying and boosting the signal for up to 1115m2 to cover the weak or dead zones. It also reduces signal interference to ensure you have reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. 

Walls getting in the way? 

If your home is larger or has thicker walls than most there may be areas where a regular range extender won’t be able to relay the signal. This is where a powerline adapter comes in handy. 

TP-Link AV1300 Gigabit Powerline ac WiFi Kit (TL-WPA8630) 

This kit is borderline magical. It expands your home’s Wi-Fi coverage into areas where the signal from your router is non-existent or unusably weak by building a unified network using your home’s existing powerlines. This means you can have connectivity in any room with a plug point, as long as the two points are on the same electrical system. It’s an ideal solution for homes where WiFi struggles to penetrate into further areas due to glass, concrete and other obstructions. 

Looking for complete home coverage? 

A mesh WiFi system will cover your entire house with a single network and keep your speeds consistent throughout. This solution is the most convenient way to keep your entire home covered.

TP-Link AC1200 Deco M4 Wireless Mesh WiFi System

Deco uses a system of units to achieve seamless Wi-Fi coverage for your entire home; no more dead zones or weak signals. Deco units work together to form a unified network with a single network name. In simple terms, your devices automatically roam between Decos as you move around your home, making sure you always have the fastest possible speeds. The Deco system is great for larger homes with big families as it can keep up to 100 devices connected without any lag.


All these solutions can be easily managed through TP-link’s convenient apps, giving you simplified control over your network from any Android or iOS device.
