There are many ways by which you can quickly increase the range of the router but in this article, we will tell you only 5 effortless tips by which you can easily boost the range of the router.
Locate Your Router In Central Location
When you locate your wavlink router closest to the exterior walls then it does not provide you with more range and WiFi coverage. Then just try to change the location of your router in a central location of your house and office. Further, do this you will get a strong WiFi signal in all directions of a house and office.
Change Frequency Band 2.4GHz to 5GHz
2.4GHz band easily increases the range of the router and easily passes out through an exterior wall. Most routers support 2.4GHz and 55GHz bands so you connect both of them separately. From the list of WiFi, check the available WiFi network and pick up your network to connect to it.
If you can’t see the WiFi network in the WiFi list then you must launch a web browser and type wifi.wavlink.com in the address bar of a web browser. After doing this, you will enter the login page of the WiFi router settings. Now, you can replace your 2.4GHz to 5GHz frequency band manually to get the best range and speed of the router.
The 5GHz frequency band only provides you with a strong WiFi signal but it does not easily pass through the walls. So, this is the reason it does not provide you with the best WiFi range.
Download Latest Version of Firmware
When you download the latest version of the firmware of the router then it might improve the range and overall performance of the router. Find online your router model to see any updates regarding the software of an extender. You can also see an update of the router on our official website wifi.wavlink.com.
Type this IP address in the address box of the web browser. With the help of this website, you will enter the settings of the router and find an option labeled ‘software updates’ or something similar like this. Download the software updating files on your router and make it completely done before trying out your router again.
Locate Foil Paper at the Edges of the Router
Foil paper may also reflect the signal, in which direction you want to travel the signal. Take a foil paper and around something rounded to the edges of the router. Soda and water help you to give the shape to foil paper. Locate foil paper in the vertical direction of the house to prevent the WiFi signal from traveling in that direction. For example: set the foil paper between the router and the window, if you don’t want the WiFi signal absorbed by the wall and window.
