Learn How Networks Outside of Your Home Can Affect Your Home Network
Potential clients often approach us about their slow network speeds and connectivity issues. The first line of defense is to contact your local Internet service provider (ISP) to ensure there are no issues or outages. If you’ve done that and still have problems with slow devices in your Dallas-area home, then it’s time to address some common wireless network interference issues.
That’s where Texadia Systems comes in – our home network services address every aspect of your Texas property’s wired and Wi-Fi connections. Read below to learn two possible culprits causing your home networking issues – your neighbor’s Wi-Fi and local cell towers. And if you need a home network service upgrade for your Dallas/Fort Worth-area home, connect with Texadia Systems today!
Your Neighbor’s Wi-Fi
A network signal doesn’t stop broadcasting at the perimeter of your property – nor does your neighbor’s. Just as microwaves, cordless phones, and baby monitors can cause network interference, so can other devices, networks, and building materials.
Our specialists at Texadia Systems will perform a wireless survey of your home when installing a new or upgraded network. As they assess every square inch of your DFW property, they’ll be able to address any interference issues by placing access points in strategic locations. Certain materials like metal and concrete can significantly impact signals, too, so our team will take this into consideration. The frequency and channel your devices connect to can be adjusted not to match your next-door neighbor’s in order to avoid further congestion.
Wireless frequency ranges used by residential and commercial Wi-Fi networks are unregulated by the FCC and operate on unlicensed 5GHz and 2.4GHz frequency standards. In recent years, heavily regulated cellular networks have moved some of their data traffic to the unlicensed 5GHz frequency band. This cellular traffic can significantly interfere with your home network and your cellular calls.
Diverting your device traffic to a different frequency and channel – plus, adding cellular boosters inside your home for cellphones – keeps all of your wireless technologies connected. Buffering symbols and dropped video conferencing calls will be a thing of the past!
How Texadia Systems Can Help
Our expert networking team can remedy the slow or spotty connectivity issues outside networks can potentially cause in your Dallas-area home. Not only can they direct device traffic to the appropriate network and reduce interference with strategic installation, but the use of commercial-grade networking solutions ensures your home’s wireless and wired connections keep technology running without a hitch.
