Routers, Repeaters and Extenders

To truly appreciate the benefits of the Calix GigaSpire BLAST Wi-Fi 6 router, it’s important to understand how your home internet works and how your Wi-Fi signal is produced and sent out. Most people are familiar with routers and their functions. These devices are the gatekeepers to wireless internet access. Often connected to the internet source entering your home, they transmit internet data to smart TVs, tablets, laptops, mobile phones and other wireless devices.

Unfortunately, the average home is filled with obstructions that can block the signals that routers transmit. Everything from tall, heavy furniture to thick walls that divide your living space into individual rooms can serve as signal blockers. Wi-Fi repeaters are relatively small-sized devices that intercept router signals and then retransmit them. They provide service to remote rooms and other problem areas.

In larger homes, Wi-Fi range extenders may be used. Just as physical obstructions can impact the receipt and strength of wireless signals in remote areas, long distances cause issues as well. Wi-Fi extenders differ from routers in that they can operate at two different spectra: 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz. This allows them to receive internet data on one spectrum and transmit it along another. Although helpful, this essentially creates a new and separate network. It also requires users to manually log into the new network in order to access it.

The Calix GigaSpire BLAST Wi-Fi 6 Router Changes Everything

Throughout the years, internet signals have become increasingly powerful, and internet speeds have greatly increased. However, this hasn’t resolved every issue that can be experienced by a weak or restricted Wi-Fi signal. In part, this is because consumers are using more connected devices in their homes. Poor Wi-Fi signal can also have environmental causes. The Calix GigaSpire BLAST Wi-Fi 6 router may solve some of you Wi-Fi signal woes.
