What Is The Problem With Wi-Fi?

Nothing, in theory. We are fans of wireless broadband ourselves… when it works. The problem is that it doesn’t always work very well.

There are lots of reasons why that could happen.

Solihull has a growing population and sometimes neighbouring home wi-fi setups can disrupt yours. Some wireless baby-monitors can interfere with broadband if they’re not extremely well shielded and broadcast on a narrow wavelength.

Even mobile phone signals can cause disruption. The most common problem is that the wi-fi signal just can’t get through brick walls and insulation.

If you live in a 3 storey house, you’ll probably know what I mean.

Why Doesn’t My Wi-fi Work Well?

Although Wi-Fi technology has advanced substantially over the years there are still limitations to the signal strength. In larger properties, areas where the signal may be blocked, and inside outbuildings this can become an issue. Luckily we have a solution at MKH Aerials, the leading providers of network cable installation in Solihull.

Event the best routers from Virgin MediaBT and so on need help occasionally.

With the correct cabling you can install a hard line for your internet connection anywhere on your property. Devices can be plugged in directly, or you can set up a second Wi-fi router to offer wireless connectivity in a remote part of your house or gardens.  With high quality components you can enjoy fantastic results.

Using the right type of cable is important, generally we use Cat 5e or Cat 6 cabling for our network cable installations. The choice will come down to your budget and the kind of performance you want.

Cat 6 cables are more costly but boast the very highest specifications. They are most commonly used in multi-point environments.

Cat 5e is still preferred for many home installations as it is cheaper and allows broadband as fast as necessary for almost all uses.
