What Features are Essential for Whole Home WiFi Coverage?

We all rely on the internet for work, play, and communication, making a reliable whole-home WiFi system essential for keeping everyone online. A high-performance WiFi mesh network can solve signal problems and open up a new world of connectivity. Here are five important WiFi considerations to ensure you get the best WiFi mesh system for your household.

Look for a powerful router with a strong signal.
Choose a WiFi system with enough WiFi range to cover your entire home.
Look for a mesh system with multiple antennas to improve the signal to cover the entire property.
Choose a WiFi 6/6E or WiFi 7 router that can handle multiple devices simultaneously.
Look for a router with advanced parental controls and encrypted WPA3 security features.

The latest WiFi mesh systems can cover large homes in a blanket of blazing-fast whole home WiFi, without the need for range extenders. Newer devices support WiFi 7, the latest standard that takes home networks to the next level.

NETGEAR and Multi-Gigabit WiFi Mesh Systems

NETGEAR Orbi 970 and 960 series products are the most advanced mesh router systems on the market today. Dual-band WiFi has been superseded by superfast tri-band WiFi and quad-band WiFi systems designed to provide large homes and big households with fast and reliable wireless and wired internet coverage. Until recently, WiFi routers only tapped into the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, whereas progressive WiFi 6E and WiFi 7 routers also utilise the 6 GHz band.

WiFi 7 uses multi-link operation (MLO) to combine different WiFi Channels for more reliable WiFi coverage. These routers also use beamforming for specific devices, and multi-unit multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO) technology that was first introduced with WiFi 5.
NETGEAR Orbi systems are a breeze to set up and manage for large and complex homes. Secure internet connectivity for data-hungry high-definition video streaming, virtual reality immersion, and competitive online gaming is now a reality.

Mesh WiFi 7 System Advantages for Connected Devices

The best mesh WiFi networks deliver multi-gig WiFi signal speeds for the entire household and eliminate WiFi dead zones. A home WiFi network can include laptops, iPads, gamer consoles, Apple iPhones, Android smartphones, smart speaker Alexa sound systems, and a whole lot more. Here are some technologies designed to improve WiFi in large homes.

Wider Channels Than WiFi 6 & 6E

WiFi frequency bands are split into multiple 20 MHz channels. However, it’s in the 6 GHz bandwidth that WiFi 7 makes a huge difference. The 6 GHz band in WiFi 7 is composed of 60 x 20 MHz channels, resulting in 320 MHz bandwidth compared to the 160MHz bandwidth of WiFi 6E. The wider the channel bandwidth, the more data it can transmit.

Better Efficiency with Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM)

QAM combines two signals into a single channel, effectively doubling the channel bandwidth. NETGEAR Orbi 970 WiFi 7 supports 4096 QAM (4K QAM), up from the 1024 QAM offered by WiFi 6E. Higher QAM allows more information to be transmitted.

Multi-Link Operation MLO

Older WiFi standards use single-band connections. Newer standards include MLO, which can combine the 2.4 GHz band and the 5 GHz band into a single wireless connection. This addresses congestion and interference issues while improving latency.

Preamble Puncturing

If you live in a congested area local demand might be slowing your network down. With previous versions of WiFi, any channels with interference become unavailable. Preamble puncturing allows your WiFi to slice off part of the channel to transmit your data, if the interference isn’t occupying the entire channel, greatly reducing network congestion.

Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access

OFDMA technology creates independent subcarriers within frequencies. This allows simultaneous transmissions with multiple clients and solves congestion issues by efficiently allocating bandwidth.

WiFi That’s Flexible, Secure and Easy Set Up

Flexible Solution – Expand WiFi coverage easily and choose the pack that best fits your home with a two pack, our most popular three pack or a four pack, designed so the satellites relay WiFi signals upstairs, downstairs and even out into the garden.

Easy Setup with the Orbi App: Streamline installation and manage your network with the Orbi App, designed for secure user-friendly interaction.

Advanced WPA3 Encryption: Orbi 970 WiFi 7 mesh systems are equipped with WPA3 encryption, the latest WiFi security standard. This feature safeguards device connections and ensures private data remains inaccessible to malicious intruders.

NETGEAR Armor: Elevate your WiFi security with NETGEAR Armor for a robust, automated security layer for connected devices such as PCs, smartphones, security cameras, smart TVs, etc. NETGEAR Armor offers real-time protection against cyber threats with an integrated VPN service
