WiFi repeater: the perfect amplifier for the home

WiFi repeator the solution to improve the door of your wifi

Your internet box correctly broadcasts WiFi in your accommodation, except in a few distant rooms, on your terrace or in your garden ? A wifi repeater can help you solve the problem. Here is everything you need to know about this very practical equipment.

How does a wifi repeater work ?

The WiFi repeater is a small electrical box to connect to an electrical outlet. The principle of WiFi repeaters is very simple. They have two parts: one captures the WiFi signal issued by your Internet box, the other generates a WiFi signal with the same power as if you had put your box in this location. As their name suggests, these small boxes only repeat the WiFi signal they receive ! Result: the range of WiFi is extended by several meters, to reach the distant parts of your box, where you had so far difficult to receive the signal. On the other hand, the WiFi repeater is not intended to improve the flow close to your box. If you find your ADSL connection too slow, you can do a fiber eligibility test or discover our 4G box offer.

With which box to use a wifi repeater ?

The use of a WiFi repeater is justified if the signal of your WiFi box does not reach certain parts distant from your modem, or too weakly. The quality of the WiFi signal tends to be reduced with the distance. If your accommodation is large, its walls and ceilings are numerous or thick, or its rooms are distant, difficulties in WiFi may appear. This can also be the case outside your accommodation (terrace, garden, garage.)). All internet boxes (ADSL, VDSL, fiber, 4G box) can be associated with a WiFi repeater. Our Bbox Ultym offer with optical fiber allows you to receive one or two WiFi repeaters for free, depending on the results of the 100% personalized WiFi diagnosis that you can perform from your customer area. For optimal operation, it is recommended to use a repeater of the same generation as the wifi standard of your box: if you have a WiFi 6 box, you should opt for a WiFi 6 repeater.
