Everyone knows the frustration of seeing the dreaded “buffering” symbol pop up on screen when you’re in the middle of streaming, and most homes have a Wi-Fi No-Mans’-Land, where the network just will not reach, no matter how many boosters or extenders you have.
Luckily, the new trend of mesh-networking systems - the latest technology upgrade for home Wi-Fi solutions – promise to make that a thing of the past.
Some of the most trusted networking brands on the market today are making waves with their new solutions; like the Amplifi system from Ubiquiti Networks and the award winning Orbi series from Netgear. Both offer a set that consists of a main router and ‘satellite’ or ‘antenna’ which will provide maximum wireless performance throughout your home unlike anything else, and is not only extremely easy to set up, but also able to be controlled via an App. You can also buy the routers or boosters separately to add on to your base network as necessary.
If you’re really feeling the need for speed, the RBK50 AC3000 Orbi system from Netgear is Fibre Ready with the latest firmware, and the Amplifi system offers VLAN tagging and PPPoE termination on the WAN port, which means it can be used as a fibre termination router.
From your front door to your back deck, if you’re yearning for super strong Wi-Fi in every inch of your home, get yourself a mesh network!
