Will your WiFi be up to the challenge of your new Christmas gadgets this festive season?
The festive season can be a testing time in many areas of life. Waistlines, credit card limits and family relationships all come under pressure. And now with the boom in smart tech gifts, your new Christmas gadgets could also mean breaking point for your WiFi.
Why a festive WiFi meltdown could be looming
Getting ready for Christmas? Planning to buy all the latest Christmas gadgets?
- Smart phone?
- Smart speaker?
- Smart TV?
- Games console?
- Interactive toy?
Just a small selection of today’s most wanted devices for the family. But like the fun new toy spoilt by the ‘batteries not included’ sticker in days gone by, if your WiFi can’t cope with these lovely new tech gifts you could be suffering the same disappointment on the big day.
Will your home WiFi manage the extra workload?
If you rely on your router for your WiFi, the answer is, probably not. This is because most wireless routers are not designed for many devices connected at once. In fact, for most routers any more than five will probably be a struggle.
And that’s not including visiting friends and family over the holiday. If you’re entertaining tech-loaded guests for the festive season, then your WiFi may be at breaking point with the extra demand.
How not to fix festive WiFi woes
Thinking you can buy a cheap WiFi booster or range extender to solve the problem? They may not be the low-cost simple fix they claim to be on the ads. In fact, they can even make things worse.
Like so many things in life, you get what you pay for!
Something for the top of your Christmas list
If you’re spending hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds on wireless tech gifts but not even thinking about how your current WiFi is going to cope, the chances are that it won’t – simply because it’s not designed to.
There is good news though. There’s a simple and cost-effective solution that most people aren’t aware of. Install a network of future-proof wireless access points throughout your home and get strong, reliable WiFi for all of this year’s must-have Christmas gadgets, and for many Christmases to come!
