There’s a wide range of networking equipment to choose from, and knowing which is best for your network can keep it running smoothly. For example, if your Wi-Fi needs to cover long distances, consider investing in a wireless extender, powerline adapter or mesh network. A wireless extender is useful if you want your Wi-Fi signal to travel farther. A powerline adapter can be handy if there are lots of obstacles (walls, floors, fireplaces, electronics, etc.) interrupting your connection. A mesh network can make it so you have more than one source for a wireless signal.
