Sure, you could add a network extension to your wireless network and it will extend the signal, however, everyday usage of this setup is troublesome.
The first problem is diminished wireless signal quality. It can only go so far. As you duplicate your wireless signal with an extender, you cut the “resolution” of the original wireless router’s signal by fifty percent. This is somewhat similar to making a photocopy of a photocopy. It doesn’t take long for the image to become fuzzy and blurred. It’s nearly impossible to get a good Wi-Fi signal in the entire house and consistent gaming is impossible off of a wireless extender.
The second problem with wireless network extenders is the non-cooperative nature between wireless routers. Essentially, they simply overlap Wi-Fi signals. As you walk out of range of the main router, the overlap, in theory, should keep you connected. But it often doesn’t. The main Wi-Fi router can’t give the extension router any notice and it can’t smoothly transfer your wireless connection. This causes Wi-Fi dead zones, disconnections, interruptions in streaming and often being forced to log on again. Frustrating.
Mesh Wi-Fi solves these problems by using intelligent nodes (routers) that smoothly maintain your connection without any degradation in signal, no matter where you are.
Each mesh node intelligently communicates with all other nodes so that your signal is never degraded and never dropped. Each Mesh system is typically capable of expanding to 8-10 nodes, which makes dead zones a thing of the past.
Not all Mesh Wi-Fi networking gear is the same and some have limitations imposed by the manufacturer that lock you into their services. Call Computer Pros Today for expert Mesh Wi-Fi installation services.
