Here is a step by step guide on How to set up the Mesh WiFi.
There isn’t a ton of flexibility on where your connection enters your home. Along side with flashing lights and cables hanging, routers and modems don’t particularly look great
You can try improving your current WiFI signal. First, making sure your router is up-to-date or run a trobleshoot check on your devices.
Having your router in an area where the WiFi signal is great would be the perfect solution. This is why the Mesh WiFi is a perfect alternative as they can be used on a wireless backhaul and look good.
A poorly placed router that has to remain connected to a modem is not easily remedied.
Why do I lose signal
Every time it has to go through a door, a wall, etc, your connection will be slightly compromised and the WiFi signal can be lost. The biggest thing to remember with wireless is that the stronger your signal is, the faster your connection is going to be.
What does mesh Wi-Fi do?
The mesh system essentially takes the internet that comes into your home via your modem and uses the router and “points” situated throughout the home to evenly blanket your space in coverage.
