Having trouble controlling my Bose system outdoors?
Over the years, many of our clients have commented how much they enjoy their outdoor speakers. However, as with all Wi-Fi based devices, at times, controlling these devices from your Patio or Pool area can be challenging. This is due to a weak Wi-Fi signal in those areas caused by an older router, location of your router, or exterior wall construction. There are a few solutions you can try to improve your outdoor Wi-Fi signal. First, simply move your existing router closer to the outside wall. Routers broadcast the Wi-Fi signal in a circular pattern from the router and the closer the router to the devices, the better. Second, you can upgrade your router. The quality and strength of routers have improved dramatically over the past couple of years. The third option is to add an outside access point. Many of these outdoor access points mount to the outside wall and are hardwired directly to your router. The outside access point allows you to bypasses any construction issues and acts an antenna for your router.
