Ive encountered almost every type of installation problem! I wanted to write an informative and easy to understand book on moving a Router.Did you know Wi-Fi is roughly 50% slower than hard-wired networks? Thick walls, ceilings and metal can all have a detrimental effect on Internet speed. It can actually be a LOT slower depending on your house architecture. So thats where hard-wiring will triumph every single time. Not only that in many cases the Router is sometimes at the front of the house. This means if you have a computer in the upstairs rear room then your Broadband speed can be very slow!The Wi-Fi signal spreads outward in a sphere so like cordless phones the signal actually works better when up higher or on another floor. Many people are now moving their Router so its next to the computer they use most and use a patch lead and plug directly into it. This maximizes your Broadband so there is no loss of speed.So i can help you move the Router and increase your Internet speed - so much easier for surfing the net, watching films and sending files!So how will i help?1) I will help list all the equipment you need so you get everything together.2) Ill help advise on cabling inside a house. This can be very tricky due to neatness being of high importance. No one wants to see ugly tram-lining cables stapled to your lovely wood skirting? Knowing how to get around the architecture can make all the difference between a very hard job and a relatively easy job. Im going to help you use your house to your advantage.3) Im going to help you connect the new socket and connect to the existing line jack.4) Finally its the test, theres a few ways to be 100% sure everything is working.So together we are going to use this simple How to to work out how to move that Router and make as neat a job as possible.Let’s get cabling!
