There are several methods you can adopt in order to get these wireless services at your home and most of them depend on availability and geographical location. If you have the access to a wired internet service, you will be able to set up your own WiFi at home.
This can be done by connecting a router to your modem which enables you to share your internet connection with all the wifi enabled devices within a given range. In case you have a two storied home or a relatively larger area to cover, it is advised to have a wifi extender or a mesh router system to cover the whole premises. It is also important to know as the number of devices increase so does the demand for bandwidth. To have your devices running at its full potential you may need to upgrade your internet plan accordingly. Occom offers a wide range of best NBN/OptiComm internet plans with speeds up to 1Gbps, to find out more, please visit: https://occom.com.au/
Wi-fi at home
Have you ever considered how exactly emails or a streaming video gets into your device so seamlessly and in real time? Well that’s Wi-Fi in action. I’m going to tell what it is and how we can set up this system at home.
Wi-Fi router uses radio frequency to send signals between devices. The two Wi-Fi frequency bands are 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Taken the case of home Wi-Fi systems, it is the radio signals which are sent from a wireless router to a nearby device, which are then translated to data that we see and use. It is a much easier way of connecting to the fibre internet via Wi-Fi rather than having to connect by cables as used by a generation before.
