I’m sure by now you have heard of many Wi-Fi access solutions for your favorite devices, whether it be your PC, Mac, iPad, Tablet, Video Game or mobile device. Wi-Fi has changed the world of communications and continues to improve from a technology standpoint, expanding its capable signal range and security standard.

Believe it or not, there is a difference in the type of Wi-Fi solution you obtain. There are different size and capacity routers and mesh systems on the market today. Some are developed for home, while others are for business and more industrial use. What comes with this difference in technology is the cost as well. 

There are a couple of old sayings when it comes to paying for things these days, you pay for what you get and are better off having more than less. Purchasing and getting the lowest cost Wi-Fi router in your home or business may not do the trick nor provide the level of capability necessary to support your needs. This may also result in problems, such as slow service or connection drops. Along with that comes the frustration as an end user of the unreliability of your Wi-Fi service, which leads to loss in personal or professional production.

Besides the technical capability of the router there are other things that factor in to how well a Wi-Fi solution may work. For example, the type of structure you are using the solution in can matter. What type of construction materials were used? Drywall, stone and metal are elements that can have an adverse effect on Wi-Fi signals, just as interference from other devices that broadcast similar signals can. Range capability is one of the most common misconceptions about Wi-Fi. So, taking all of these factors into consideration, you can see there is so much thinking and planning that needs to go in to implementing such a solution that you could use a professional IT consultant or technician’s expertise to steer you in the right direction. Sure, I see the advertisements too. It’s as simple as turning it on and connecting to Wi-Fi, which is a statement that sounds good, until other factors come into play.
