Today we ask more and more of our internet connection. We want to be connected 24/7, and more and more devices are being added that also want something with your WiFi signal at home. But because we put more and more pressure on our internet connection, some small issues also arise more and more often. For example, stuttering while streaming You on Netflix, a broken connection during a conference call on a home working day or just too much lag during a game of FIFA on your PS5.
Fortunately, these kinds of issues are easy to solve. The German network expert devolo AG presented the WiFi 6 Repeater 3000 at the end of last year. It ensures higher data speeds at all places in the house, is very easy to install and it is also a good way to prepare your WiFi home network for the future.
Closing gaps in the home network
The office in the attic, or the home entertainment setup in the playroom and even the refrigerator in the utility room: more and more devices at home depend on a good connection. But often these devices are far away from the WiFi router in the house, which unfortunately can still be found far too often somewhere at the bottom of the meter cupboard. And that same router also has to keep the increasing number of smart gadgets connected. And so you cannot escape one (or more) WiFi amplifiers.
The new devolo repeater offers a quick and easy solution for medium-sized homes. This strengthens the existing WiFi network in the house. And it also features a Gigabit LAN port. for any stationary devices nearby.
Plug & Play
Installing is very easy. Just a matter of plugging in, pressing the button and off you go! You then want to see 4 green lines on the signal indicator, so that you know that it is in an optimal position. The Home Network app from devolo (for iOS and Android) is also very useful here. It will give you a helping hand with the installation if necessary and also provides an overview of all configuration options.
No special technical knowledge is really required, so you don’t have to call ‘a guy’ to install this repeater.
Plenty of information and options in the handy app.
This WiFi 6 Repeater is designed for easy and flexible operation. As a compact socket adapter, you can place it in the optimal place in your home. The repeater works together with all common router models and connects to the existing WiFi router within seconds via the practical WPS function. Since it ‘extends’ the router’s existing wireless network, no additional configuration of devices is required. These simply remain connected to the existing access data, but also benefit from the advanced WiFi 6 standard with transfer rates of up to 3,000 Mbps.
Ready for the future
WiFi 6 makes this WiFi turbo boost possible thanks to, among other things, OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access). This advanced modulation technology makes much more efficient use of WiFi frequencies and provides more bandwidth per data stream. As a result, WiFi 6 is significantly more suitable for managing multiple connections at once. This is great for all households with a growing number of devices.
In addition, the WiFi 6 standard uses an optimized Target Wake Time (TWT). This is especially beneficial for battery-powered smart home devices, of which we are seeing more and more in today’s households. TWT significantly extends battery life.
In addition, the devolo WiFi 6 Repeater supports so-called BSSC (Basic Service Set Colouring). This feature allows simultaneous use of a WiFi frequency band by multiple WiFi 6 hotspots. This is especially important in residential environments such as apartment buildings with a lot of wireless WiFi communications, as it increases both the performance and stability of the WiFi.
Smart mesh WiFi
The devolo WiFi 6 Repeater 3000 has advanced mesh functions, which make it possible to set up a wireless network with WiFi access points that are perfectly coordinated. For example, by using Client Steering, mesh networks ensure that mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, are automatically connected to the strongest hotspot. This prevents stuttering and disconnections, which can occur in normal networks, for example, when users walk around the house during a telephone conversation. Smart WiFi functions such as band steering, airtime fairness and beamforming complete the functions for an optimal home network.
WiFi on the first floor is immediately a lot faster and more stable. Handy for a TV in the bedroom, for example.
This WiFi repeater from devolo is a very simple way to boost your WiFi connection and range at home. You really don’t need any technical knowledge to install it. And after installation it works immediately and hopefully you will be rid of those minor issues.
