Whats the current state of wifi coverage bosting tech, to remedy poor coverage ?
**** please dont say run cables. If I could run cables everywhere this would be a non issue
With Many newish homes, running cables & cutting holes in walls etc just isnt an option
Ive installed a few powerline kits at various sites , them are OK, but far from perfect
Have boosters & repeaters become any better ? Ive never had much success with those in the past.
I see some ISPs now offering ~mesh~ kits . What the real world experience with those ? If its a house/building with real
wifi degradation through walls, will mesh will still struggle ?
There a company thats been advertising on the radio : guarenteed better wifi
Looking at there site, they are relying on running network cables: so thats a fail, in many homes it cant be be done without ugly trunking runing up walls
and across ceilings
That also claimed "capable of transmitting data at a rate of 1300Mbps" . Is that just marketing BS ?
Is handoff between access points/mesh nodes etc still an issue , or is that more or less solved now.
Ive seen mesh systems where Ithings would stay connected to the weaker more distant node, requiring the ithings wifi to be cycled off/on .
People just expect wifi that allways works, everywhere . Trying to tell them its not realistic seems like you're making excuses
