Boost WiFi in a townhouse

Do you live in a terraced house of average size but is your wifi above bad? There are several solutions if you do not have wifi in a house or corner house. So you get wireless internet upstairs and you have wifi throughout the house. In this article I explain what the different options are.

I want wifi in a place where I do not have a wireless signal yet

Do you have no wifi in the bedroom or do you want wireless internet in the attic? With a powerline adapter you create a Wi-Fi network in a place where you do not have a reception right now. This is simple: you plug the adapter into the wall socket and connect it to your router. Then, for example, plug the second adapter into the socket in the bedroom. So you have internet upstairs without cables. The network traffic runs through the power network in your house.

I want to strengthen my current WiFi signal

Are you satisfied with your current router or modem, but do you want to extend the signal? So you also have wifi on the upper floor? Then expand your current router. With some brands and models this can be done with a special extension. For example an extra station for Multiroom WiFi, Asus AiMesh or a repeater from Netgear Nighthawk. These devices make a wireless connection to your current router, giving you 1 network in house. Do you use a different type of router, for example that of your provider? Then you expand your wireless network with a powerline adapter. This sets up an extra WiFi network. The internet runs via the power network. It is therefore not necessary to draw cables.

I want to replace my current router

Do you have Wi-Fi in your terraced house with your current router or modem or is the Wi-Fi above bad? Then you can also think of a Wi-Fi router with a large range. Multiroom wifi with 2 or 3 stations is the best solution for your average home. You place these stations scattered around your house. This way you create 1 WiFi network with the same name. The stations are in contact with each other wirelessly, so that you have a good signal everywhere. Even when you walk from top to bottom with your smartphone.

We recommend 3 stations for an average single-family home.
