For many people today, their office is now their home.

This now means that the numbers of connected devices at home has increased significantly, from phones to laptops, to TVs.

How can you maximise your home network with Linksys?

While many products seem similar on the surface, not all are the same. With so many to choose from, it can be confusing as to where to start. What factors play into getting the most out of your home network?

Test Your Wi-Fi Speed

Currently, there are single-band, dual-band, and tri-band WiFi routers on the market. Single band optimal speed is up to 750 Mbps, a dual band WiFi router clocks up to 1625 Mbps, and a tri-band router provides the fastest speeds with up to 2166 Mbps on each band.

It is important to test your WiFi speed to make sure the speed you are paying for and receiving is matching your needs.

Ditch Your Old ISP Router/Modem

Many people try to make do with the ISP router/modem that they most likely got from their Internet provider. These routers are adequate for basic Internet needs but that’s what these routers are: basic. If you’re dependent on reliable, fast and consistent WiFi throughout your home office and home, these ISP provided routers likely aren’t optimal.

Upgrade to Mesh WiFi

Mesh WiFi, or whole home WiFi, consists of a main router that connects directly to your modem and a series of nodes you place around your home. This provides full WiFi coverage throughout your house. Think of it like an old-school stereo, with a main receiver and various satellite speakers around the house to carry sound — but in this case, it’s a router, nodes, and WiFi.

With a Linksys Mesh WiFi router, such as the MR9000 or MR8300, you create a mesh WiFi that delivers superior speeds through your home. It’s easy to install and you can expand your coverage as your WiFi needs grow.

Add WiFi Range Extenders

Some Mesh WiFi systems require to you upgrade to an entire new WiFi system if you want to expand on it. Fortunately, Linksys offers ways you can extend the range of your WiFi with affordable products. That means you’ll be able to augment and expand upon your original investment.

Linksys Velop Mesh WiFi benefits include:

  • Faster Internet speeds
  • Expand your WiFi coverage
  • Easy to install
  • Customizable
  • Automated software updates

Optimize Your Home WiFi to Maximize Productivity

Overall, optimizing your home WiFi is about staying connected and in control so you can be as productive as possible. Your family members who rely on WiFi will be happy, too.
