A week in wireless #2: mesh

There is some good news for your WiFi network as well: especially if you’re tired of slow connections, or if your WiFi connection hardly reaches the attic. Mesh networks are becoming more popular and you can usually tell when a new technology is catching on, when the big names get involved. Google recently announced they will start selling their mesh routers in the Netherlands.

So, what are the benefits of mesh technology? Instead of a single router having to cover your entire home (and competing with the neighbours’ access point), your WiFi could be provided by a network of routers set up in different rooms. They will work together to automatically create the best connections throughout your home and select the best WiFi channels to use in each location. Sounds promising!
