Internet has become an essential part of our lives and we are always surrounded by wireless radio signals, be it in our office or home. Many of us cannot even think of a life without internet, but what if some areas of your prefab modular home do not get the signal from your Wi-Fi router? Do not think that you are doomed. Below tips can help you fix Wi-Fi signal coverage issues in prefab modular homes.
It is true that the Wi-Fi routers are not the most attractive pieces of equipment, but you should not place them inside closed cabinets. Mirrors, walls, floors, doors, and windows of your home can affect the signal from the Wi-Fi router. This is why it is important to place the router centrally so that all the areas of the home will get a clear Wi-Fi signal. Another important thing is to place the router as high as possible as the wireless antenna of the Wi-Fi router send signals in the form of a canopy.
After placing the router centrally in your prefab modular home, the next thing to ensure is that nothing is interfering with the signals from the router. Signals from devices like baby monitors, cordless phones, and microwave ovens can interfere with the Wi-Fi signals causing signal disruption. If this is the case, you will need to change the channel that is used by the router. To do this, you will need to refer to the user’s manual that is provided with the router. If the manual is not available, you may need to contact your internet service provider to get the instructions to change the channel.
Use Wi-Fi Repeater
If none of the above steps fix the Wi-Fi signal reception issues, you may need to use a Wi-Fi repeater to boost the signal so that it can reach all the areas of the home. Some of the commercially available repeaters are simple devices that can be plugged into a wall outlet, whereas some others are complex ones. A Wi-Fi repeater is used to extend the signal from the router, but you need to keep in mind that these signals get weaker when you move away from the router.
