devolo Magic 1 WiFi
Starter Kit - 2 adapters
A comparison for the right decision
A router signal is often inadequate to supply a house or a large flat with WiFi. Internet reception is often weak just where it is needed the most. Connections are interrupted. The cheapest way of expand WiFi coverage is a so-called repeater. These devices can expand the WiFi area covered by routers to include a room that is directly adjacent, but does not improve the router’s overall signal strength. The Powerline technology, on the other hand, provides WiFi reception at a distance of several rooms.
We will help you make the right decision.
Good reception in the direct vicinity oft he router – large distances and obstacles such as ceilings and walls weaken the Wi-Fi signal.
A weakened signal is transmitted – the larger the distance and the greater the obstacles, the weaker the Wi-Fi reception!
Top-notch Wi-Fi reception! The signal is transmitted over the electrical wiring – no signal loss over large distances. Ceilings and walls are no obstacle!
The WiFi repeater is set up via web browser or WPS (WiFi Protected Setup). If you use WPS, all the information you need is how long to keep the WPS button on the router pressed. Our WiFi repeaters give you continuous information about signal strength using the LED display. The adapters comply with common WiFi standards and are therefore compatible with all common WiFi routers.
✖ halves the transmission bandwidth (high loss)
✖ not suitable for use in large flats or houses or across several storeys
Summary: WiFi repeaters are especially suited to expanding the WiFi signal on the same storey if there are few obstacles such as walls to impair signal transmission. But WiFi repeaters are ill-suited to solving WiFi connectivity problems across storeys; for them to work, the architecture of the space must be quite open.
Our WiFi-capable Powerline adapters carry the internet signal over the power lines. This brings the signal to every room on every floor. All you need is at least two devolo Magic adapters, one of which you connect to the router, plugging the other into a power socket where you need WiFi.
Summary: The ideal solution for improved WiFi reception, since the data transfer is accomplished even over great distances. Installation is by means of the encryption button on the adapters (pairing) or via our “Cockpit” computer tool. The WiFi network can also be expanded by adding with as many additional adapters as you need.
If these factors apply to your situation, we recommend devolo Magic adapters with WiFi that extend the signal through the power line to the desired room and provide reliable WiFi there.
