Hi, I’ve recently moved house and I find that the WiFi is not as good as it should be in certain areas of the house. I live in a 3 bedroom house, so it’s not massive and my router is maybe around 4-5 metres from my PS4 in my bedroom and I find the WiFi sporadic. I’m wondering if it’s anything to do with the construction of the house, it’s concrete all over, no floorboards on first floor and I wonder if the WiFi struggles to get through the floor.
Yes, very much so, especially between floors as wireless propagation is much weaker in the vertical direction.
Concrete can have a high attenuation rate, rising with the thickness of the concrete , and will be much higher if there is an insulation layer in the concrete
The most robust solution is to provide a separate Wireless Access Point upstairs, but this needs to be wired back to the Hub.You could look at running a Ethernet cable along side water pipes between floors if possible.
Powerline Adapters can provide a more convenient solution but can be affected by noise on your electrical mains and may not work with some older types of consumer boards.
