What is WiFi Coverage

WiFi coverage refers to the range and strength of the wireless signal that a WiFi network provides. It is the area within which you can connect to a wireless network and access the Internet without experiencing issues with slow speeds or connection drops. The coverage area of a WiFi network can be impacted by various factors, including the location of the router, the number of connected devices, the presence of walls or other obstructions, and the frequency band used by the network. To improve WiFi coverage, it is recommended to place the router in the center of the house, if possible, so the signal can reach to each corner of the house with ease. It is also recommended to avoid heavy-duty appliances or electronics, since running those in close proximity can impact WiFi performance. If the router has external antennas, orient them vertically to bump up coverage, and it can even help to elevate the router—mount it high on the wall or on the top shelf to get a better signal. There are also plenty of tools to help visualize network coverage, such as Ekahau’s Heatmapper or MetaGeek’s inSSIDer, which show both the weak and strong spots in the WiFi network. WiFi coverage can also be analyzed using WiFi analyzer software, such as NetSpot, which provides detailed information on the signal strength throughout the coverage area.
