Wi-Fi SSID.png

SSID (Service Set Identifier)

Each Wi-Fi network has an SSID, which is the network's name. When a device wants to connect to a network, it looks for available SSIDs within range and attempts to join the chosen network.

Authentication​

Most Wi-Fi networks are secured with passwords or encryption methods such as WPA2 or WPA3. When a device tries to connect, it must provide the correct password to access the network.

Frequency Bands

Wi-Fi operates on two main frequency bands: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The 2.4 GHz band covers a larger area but has slower speeds and is more prone to interference. The 5 GHz band offers faster speeds but has a shorter range.

Data Transmission

Once connected, data is transmitted between the device and the router using radio waves. This involves sending and receiving packets of data, which are small units of information.

Channels

Wi-Fi networks use channels to send and receive data. These channels are segments of the overall frequency range. To avoid interference, different networks use different channels.

Wi-fi Information & Tips

What is Wifi

How does Wi-fi Work?

Wi-Fi allows devices to connect to the internet wirelessly by transmitting data over radio waves, with the router serving as the central hub that connects to the internet and communicates with all connected devices.

Transmission of Radio Waves

 Wi-Fi uses electromagnetic waves, specifically radio waves, to transmit data. These waves operate at frequencies of 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz, depending on the network.

​Router

The central device in a Wi-Fi network is the router.

It is connected to the internet via a modem.

The router transmits the internet signal wirelessly using radio waves.

Optimal Placement for Signal Strength 

 

The quality of a Wi-Fi connection can be affected by distance from the router, physical obstacles (like walls), and interference from other electronic devices or neighboring Wi-Fi networks. For the best coverage, place your router in a central location. Avoid hiding it in cabinets or behind large objects, as obstructions like these can weaken the signal. Elevate your router on a shelf or mount it on a wall to minimize interference and maximize range.

Minimize Interference

Wi-Fi signals can be disrupted by other electronic devices, such as microwaves, cordless phones, and baby monitors. To reduce interference, keep your router away from these devices and use the 5 GHz frequency band for a cleaner, less congested signal

Secure Your Network

 

Ensure your Wi-Fi network is secure by using a strong, unique password and enabling WPA2 encryption. Regularly update your router’s firmware to protect against security vulnerabilities and maintain optimal performance.

Regular Maintenance

 

Keep your network in top shape by regularly rebooting your router and checking for firmware updates. Clean the router's vents to prevent overheating and ensure consistent performance.

Monitor and Manage Your Network

Take control of your Wi-Fi - Monitor device connections, manage bandwidth, and perform speed tests to ensure your network is running smoothly. Set up parental controls and guest networks with ease, giving you peace of mind and greater control over your internet usage. These are just some of the features that can be provided by our high quality routers. See more here
