WiFi problems can occur in any area of the house, but homeowners are likely to have the most problems in the garage. Sometimes the issue may be that the garage is disconnected from the house, and thus farthest away from the router.
Another common culprit is thick walls. These walls are often made out of either steel or concrete, making it harder for the WiFi signal to reach there. Below we’ve explained just a few of the things you can do to get WiFi in your garage.
WiFi Router Placement
The first step to ensuring full internet coverage for your home is making sure that your router is placed correctly. Generally speaking, you’ll want to make it as centralized as possible in order to ensure that the entire home’s covered. You may want to experiment with placement to determine what works best for you.
In some cases, one WiFi router won’t be enough to cover your entire house. It may be that your home is too big, your router isn’t powerful enough, or certain walls are simply too thick for the router to be effective.
In this situation, we recommend getting a WiFi booster. This device takes a weak WiFi signal and amplifies it, allowing it to reach into areas where you may otherwise not get internet.
Replace Your Current WiFi Setup
Regardless of how you’ve set up the router and other WiFi accoutrements in your home, you may not be able to get the WiFi strength you’re looking for. In this case, the problem may be that your current WiFi setup is too old.
Experts recommend replacing your WiFi equipment no more than once every five years, since the technology evolves rapidly and you want to make sure your equipment is able to handle the requirements of the larger and larger amounts of data our devices use every day.
If you’re still having difficulty getting internet, an ethernet cable can help you get internet connection while easily bypassing the walls. Some people don’t like the setup required for ethernet, but it does provide you with faster internet speeds and more reliability.
