It sucks to have spotty Wi-Fi connection at home. Having a stable and strong internet connection is needed at home, so we have to look for ways to keep this consistent.

As a staple platform at home, the internet is one of the major sources of productivity and enjoyment for the family. However, these things are not confined to just one spot at home. We take our Wi-Fi-connected smartphones to various places at home – sala, bedroom or even at the comfort room – to “snack” on social contents and recording aha and wow moment in our lives. We use our gaming consoles, desktop and laptop computers to play our favorite games; and almost all the time, our games demand stable and reliable bandwidth.

There is a big chance that a Filipino household usually uses a 2.4 GHz router, which covers 150 feet indoors. Put walls and obstacles in between, and you get yourself an obstructed bandwidth reliability. This makes on-demand video streaming buffering and playing games with high ping. Solving this issue may be done in several ways: DIY hacks, router repositioning or buying a relatively more expensive router.
