What is a network access point?


Everyday more and more devices are being connected to your home’s Wi-Fi network. The last couple of weeks, we have discussed the importance of a strong Wi-Fi network throughout your home and how to quickly test the strength and coverage. In many cases, you will find your Wi-Fi coverage will vary throughout your home. You can strengthen the coverage of your network by adding Access Points or Range Extenders. These devices are not the same. An Access Point is wired back to your router and creates another wireless network in your home. An Access Point can handle many mores devices than a Range Extender. A Range Extender connects wirelessly to your router and therefore needs to be placed close enough to your router to create a strong Wi-Fi connection that can be expanded. Because of this, a Range Extender cannot be placed in the “dead Zone” since the Wi-Fi signal is already weak in that area and the Range Extender will not connect to the router. When wiring is possible, we prefer Access Points to Range Extenders.
