Having a Wifi extender can be a huge help to
your peace of mind in 2020 since WiFi is currently a very important tool
in all of our lives.
Whether you use the internet once a year , once a week or all day long
you will need fast internet access at some point in order to
simply manage your life. In 2020 everything we do involves getting online. The person to person interaction that we are accustomed to has been
reduced due to Covid-19.Disclosure: This article does contain affiliate links that earn us a commission
You can do just about anything online in 2020 and most businesses
Even if you are one of the rare people that still refuses
to use the internet and lives like it’s still 1990, at some point you will be forced to fill out something online or communicate with a friend or relative using today’s technology.
My late friend Larry Butler was 85 years old when he
passed away and even he embraced today’s technology and was even on Facebook.
Now that we’ve established a few of the main reasons
to be familiar with using today’s technology let’s take
a look at how you can make it as easy as possible to
do things fast and efficient.
Technology has came a long way in the last 20 years.
We can now do anything online in a matter of seconds
compared to when the internet first started and we
all had dial up modems.
Wifi which is short for “Wireless Fidelity” has
revolutionized our lives and we can’t get enough.
Although Wi-Fi is fast it can also be spotty and
slow depending on your location and number of users.
This is as frustrating as the old dial up internet connections.
Wired Wi-Fi like cable or ethernet have
little down times but wireless seems to be a problem
So how can this problem be solved
or at least improved?
If you want to skip all of the solutions that may or may not help and quickly fix the problem I would suggest
that you get a Wi-Fi extender.
Wi-Fi extenders can take your existing Wi-Fi coverage and strengthen it by 100 times or more.Disclosure: This article does contain affiliate links that earn us a commission I remember years ago when I was skeptical about buying one.
I remember years ago when I was skeptical about buying a Wi-Fi extender.
I am happy that I took the chance because a Wi-Fi extender has improved
my life since that day. Since I work from home it is imperative
that I have a good, fast and safe internet connection. I live
somewhere that provides a community Wi-Fi so I didn’t feel the
need to spend the money to purchase a monthly Wi-Fi service.
The problem with our community Wi-Fi is that it just isn’t fast enough
since there are other people sharing the connections.
I finally got fed up with the slow connection and I purchased a Wi-Fi extender.
I took it home, followed the directions, and within 20 minutes
I was up and running with my own network and I now have superfast Wi-Fi.
I have been happy with my Wi-Fi ever since.
One of the greatest advantages to having a Wi-Fi extender is that you can
create your own network with a unique password. This creates a secure
network that puts a barrier between you and the hackers.
Just be sure to use a strong password. Never use your name or any
password that is easily discovered by hackers. Now days nothing
is 100% secure but as long as you use the suggested pre cautions I have listed
below when setting up your home network you stand very little chance
of ever getting hacked.
Here are my suggested precautions:
1) Use a very strong username and password with letters, numbers and symbols
2) Change your password regularly and never use the same password twice. Use a very
long uncommon password if possible.
3)Never use the same password for all of your accounts
4) Be sure to keep your password in a safe place.
5) Don’t share with neighbors. It might seem safe but you never know what they will do with that password plus your signal will be weaker than normal while they’re logged in.
6) Never use factory supplied passwords. These are general passwords and usernames that
are provided with the device for the setup purposes only. They are well known by hackers since
they are universal passwords for that make and model. It is up to you to decide your device with
a strong password. Just remember that hacking into your Wi-Fi is like picking the lock to your
computer. Once they get in the damage can be done before it is ever noticed by you.
7) Choose WPA2 PSK security which enables you to create your own password.
8) Read all directions and follow all security suggestions and never forget that as soon as you think you
can’t get hacked is when you will get hacked. Be safe about what you do online.
Without a doubt Tp-Link and Netgear are the best brands of Wi-Fi extenders on the market which
makes them the best selling also.
Below you will find that these 2 brands are on sale on Amazon. I have
also included several more brands that are more than recommend by me and they have great customer
reviews. All of these items are worth buying but as a person that has tried several of them I have to say
problems for years.
I do not write a lot of recommendations because I only recommend things that I have used and trust.
