The Internet in Your Home – Deep Dive #1: WiFi
Working from home can certainly emphasize the importance of a strong wi-fi network. In the first deep-dive into the world of home internet, the Brothers discuss the basics that you need to know in order to create and get the most out of a wireless network, including:
- Router types
- Standards (802.what??)
- Signal types
- Enable your “Guest” network at home so that when your brother comes over, you can give him a really slow internet!
In addition, the “BiTS” (Brothers in Tech Suggestions):
- Brian’s Pick = WiFi Explorer (https://www.adriangranados.com): Application that will provide you with lots of information about the strength of not only your wireless network…but any network that it can see. Helpful when determining effective router or working location.
- Alan’s Pick = FING (https://www.fing.com/products/fing-app): a mobile app that will show you a list of all connected devices on your network, provide network alerts & speed tests.
