Many Hungarian homes are installed with desktop computers and a few other electronic devices. Like Americans, Australians, Canadians, and other Europeans, Hungarians enjoy spending time behind a computer. In 2018, it was reported that approximately 81 percent of Europeans utilize the Internet regularly, which has been deemed weekly, for the 2018 Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI).
The Hungarian population, on the other hand, was slightly lower at 76 percent. While Hungarians are playing catch-up as far as the Internet goes, many Europeans spend time on their electronic devices at least daily. Some a little more than others, but they spend time on the Internet nonetheless.
What Are Wireless Dead Spots?
Wi-Fi, often referred to as wireless Internet, is designed specifically for mobile Wi-Fi-enabled devices, such as the laptop, iPad, and tablet.
A wireless signal allows users to connect their mobile devices to the Internet remotely, instead of directly utilizing an Ethernet cable. No cables are needed for Wi-Fi, which can create some issues in apartment complexes, large cities, condominiums, townhouses, and flats. These residential settings tend to have more physical barriers than single-story homes in suburban and rural areas.
Dead spots are areas that cannot access a wireless signal. Multi-story homes generally have dead spots because wireless routers only offer a specific range. The larger the home, the more risk for dead spots. As far as apartment complexes go, the extra walls and ceilings create barriers between the wireless router and some areas. These physical barriers can also weaken the signal, which is nearly as bad as a dead zone in some situations.
How To Combat Dead Spots And Weak Signals
There are two options when it comes to Wi-Fi expansion. These options are the Wi-Fi extender and the mesh network. Both of these options are great for large, multi-story homes that are experiencing dead zones, weak signals, and loss of signal. All of these issues are generally related to the Wi-Fi router, which is not strong enough to push the signal all throughout the home. Below, you will discover more in-depth information about these two Wi-Fi expansion options and which one works best.
What Is The Purpose Of The Wi-Fi Extender?
The Wi-Fi extender’s main purpose is exactly as its name entails. This device is designed to expand the Wi-Fi signal into dead zones. It can also strengthen the signal in areas where the Wi-Fi signal is weak and keeps cutting in and out.
Unfortunately, pretty nothing can be done about physical barriers but there are methods to combating the issue.
This is where the Wi-Fi extender comes into play.
There is a broad range of Wi-Fi extender brands available, making it extremely difficult to choose just one for your home network. By considering these factors – compatibility, customer reviews, design, number of Ethernet ports, speed, electrical requirements, and range (coverage) – you will find it easier to make the decision.
In most cases, the Wi-Fi extender operates on 400-volt three-phase electricity. The component plugs directly into an electrical outlet or receptacle in the area where it is needed most. The goal is to find where the Wi-Fi signal starts to weaken, so the extender will strengthen the signal from this point and push it into new areas.
There is also the desktop design, which requires more space than the plug-in design. However, many people prefer this design to the plug-in extender because they believe, in this case, bigger is better.
There is not enough evidence to back up this theory but you can always do a comparison to which design is more suitable for your home.
When you are playing your favorite video games at an online casino, you don’t want to be left dealing with a weak wireless signal. A mesh system will eliminate these issues before they can get started.
The last design option is the USB-powered extender, which plugs into your desktop computer or laptop’s USB port. This is a handy, compact wireless extender that works great but, unfortunately, has some limitations.
The Wi-Fi extender itself is so tiny that the embedded components are limited to the basic necessities.
However, a lot of consumers appear to be satisfied with their USB wireless boosters. This design would probably work great for a laptop that is slightly out of the Wi-Fi range.
Most name-brand – Netgear, TP-Link, and Linksys – are all great options. If you stick with the name-brand Wi-Fi extenders, the odds of you having to return it will be on the low side.
