Why does my WiFi not reach every room in my home
Why does my Wi-Fi not reach everywhere I need it in my home?
Your Wi-Fi router just won't reach every part of your home and for most people one router just can't reach the whole home. The signal will get weaker and weaker until the signal strength is too weak to deliver the Internet to where you need it.
Domestic Wi-Fi routers such as the one you will have in your home, are limited by law, to transmit no further than 200 feet, outside in perfect conditions, i.e. in the middle of a field on a sunny day. For this reason you can't just turn up the power of your router. It's also the reason that the new router you just bought, is no better than the old one.
The list of things that will decrease or even stop the Wi-Fi signal include:
- Thick walls and especially the type of walls in Edwardian and Victorian homes that are common in Cardiff,
- Any metal such as wiring or pipes in the walls, metal furniture, radiators, etc.
- Large electronics devices such as TV's
- People. Yes a room full of people will reduce the Wi-Fi signal
- Interference from neighbours or local businesses
