Wi-Fi tips

Let’s look at some different ways you can setup your home Wi-Fi network to make the most of your fibre connection

Connect via ethernet cable

If you have devices that are close to your Wi-Fi router, connect them with an ethernet cable to get the fastest connection.

Wi-Fi mesh

A Wi-Fi mesh network uses one or more Wi-Fi repeaters, placed around your home to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi signal to every part of the house.

Placement of your router

Place your Wi-Fi router somewhere central, or close to your most-used devices, with as few walls or obstacles between it and the places you need Wi-Fi.
