 Ways to extend your Wi-Fi range

Experiencing slow internet speed can be excruciation, especially during the pandemic when most people work from home. Thus, it is crucial to have a fast and stable internet connection. But before we complain about our internet provider or connection, the best thing you can do is double-check your actual download and upload speeds.

Go to our Speed Test page and click the "Start" button. Use the tool to test your internet speeds several times to get your internet speed information. But, of course, if you have a fast and stable internet speed, you don't need to do anything about that.

In contrast, if your internet speed is way lower than what you have signed up for your monthly plan, you may suffer from low internet speeds, and one of the most common cause could be poor or weak Wi-Fi signals.

Factors that affect your Wi-Fi range

1. Obstruction:
Various Drywall, stone, wood, or home appliances can block or absorb the internet signals. If you place the router in a room where it is surrounded by many home appliances, it can significantly reduce the signal range.

2. Physical distance:
Of course, physical distance is one of the factors that can affect the Wi-Fi range. The Wi-Fi signal is not the same as cell towers. The further the distance from your Wi-Fi router to devices, the weaker the Wi-Fi signals.

3. Router Capacity:
Although most wireless routers can support about 250 devices connected at once, however, this is properly not a good idea to connect so many devices at once. Keep in mind that every device connected to the router will decrease the bandwidth to other devices that are on the network. Therefore, if you must connect many devices at once, you want to ensure the router has a high capacity to support all the connected devices. Or you can disconnect device that you don’t use anymore.

Wi-Fi Signal Range

Without any doubt, there are various Wi-Fi routers on the market. So naturally, the more powerful Wi-Fi router is the more range they have. But keep in mind that the router's brand and price are not the factors that affect the internet speed. As mentioned previously in this article, many factors can affect the Wi-Fi signal.

However, there are a few ways to fix the problem of weak Wi-Fi signals. Here are the four ways to extend your Wi-Fi signal:

1. Reboot

"Please reboot your devices.” This is the most common thing that people hear from any IT team. Just one simple action (switch the device on and off) can sometimes help you improve the Wi-Fi speed.

If you have no idea how to reboot your device, please see instructions here. And remember rebooting your device can sometimes fix network issues as well. Next time when you experience slow internet speeds, unplug the router and modem first.

2. The right location for your router

As we mentioned earlier in the article, certain obstacles can block Wi-Fi signals and cause a slower internet speeds. So, placing the router in a room with large materials like glass, drywall, shelf, or stone, is a property, not a good idea because it has potential to weaken the signal. Since the router sends out the signal in all directions, it is best to place your router in the house’s central location to optimize the signal.

3. Switch the router frequencies

The newest router allows you to switch between 2.4 GHz to 5GHZ. The main difference between these two is: 2.4 GHZ gives you longer and broader coverage which means the signal can "travel" further than 5GHZ. In contrast, 5GHZ provides faster speeds but with less range coverage.

If you live in a small area, then switching to 5GHZ may provide a better internet speed. But keep in mind that some older devices may not support the 5GHZ connection.

4. Change your Internet package/plan

If none of the above methods work, you can consider changing the internet package. CanNet provides affordable internet packages for everyone. For 75Mbps, high-speed internet we only charge $29.98/month.

Seven things we love about the holidays


 “Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh what it is to say why we love Christmas Day.”
It’s the best time of the year, it’s time to make some warm memories with family, share gifts while listening to Christmas carols, and end the day by watching Home Alone. We all are waiting for December to enjoy the festive season and all the good things it brings.

Even though many of us are not very fond of the winter, the Holidays are worth all the snow and freezing temperature. Nothing is better than a white Christmas, where you enjoy the weather from inside your home while enjoying a hot cup of cocoa sitting beside the fireplace.
There are so many things about the holiday period that we love, so we are listing out seven things about the Christmas holidays we all love and why is it worth the wait and the winter:

1.    Festive Decoration 
The entire city is bathed with illuminations, Christmas lights and looks like a beautiful wonderland. Every house has put up a Christmas tree and is decorating it right after the December starts; like the festive season has now begun.

2.     Time to exchange gifts
 Christmas without gifts? We all love gifts and Christmas brings an opportunity to offer special and meaningful gifts to all your friends and family is one of the priceless joys of Christmas and not to forget all the gifts you will be receiving in return. Christmas is incomplete without gifts at least for us.

3.     Family time at home 
Christmas means holiday time; no work and no school. You are home and so is your whole family, and what better way to celebrate the Holidays than with family by enjoying the dinner together, play games and have fun. Christmas is special because you spend it with your loved ones doing things you love and enjoy.

4.     Food 
It's the holidays and you are home while it’s snowing outside, and you are making smores, your mom baked you some nice gingerbread and you had turkey for your dinner. Thank God!! Christmas is right before New Year, we can always save the weight control for New Year’s resolutions!!

5.      Christmas Movies/Music
– Every grocery store and department store is playing Christmas songs all December and we even tune to the Christmas radio every time we are driving. Similarly, no matter how many times we have watched them, we watch our favourite Christmas movies on Christmas Eve night again every year. Few of our favourite Christmas movies that we recommend are Home Alone, Elf, Christmas Story or The Polar Express every year, what are yours?

6.      Christmas Markets
The festive season begins with the start of December and so does the Christmas markets. Admit it, the best poutine you would ever have was in winter at your local Christmas market while you enjoy all the beautiful illuminations and live concerts and performances. Christmas markets give us all an opportunity to go out and walk around and enjoy the seasonal food, the festive activities while you also buy a few gifts.

7.     Christmas Parties 
It’s no secret that we all love parties and Christmas brings the opportunity for a lot of them. One with college friends, one with school friends, one with family and one with your office friends, phew… that’s a lot of parties in one month. Also, it’s the time of the year where you get to enjoy a nice dinner with your co-workers and boss at your annual office party because why not, it’s Christmas.

We have a lot more things we like about Christmas and they are countless, but long story short, that is exactly why we all love Christmas and wait for it. And now that it’s finally here; enjoy it wholeheartedly with your friends and family.

CanNet wishes everyone a Very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
