We introduce structure and merit of mesh Wi-Fi, setting method.
Wi-Fi that is displayed in flabelliform mark by smartphone and PC.
We have role to be able to link apparatus to the Internet by one kind of wireless LAN.
As for Wi-Fi and the apparatus to connect, and to use, there are game console and tablet, a great variety of things including music player. Wi-Fi environment cannot miss household appliances that Smart speaker and AI were equipped with.
In other words, Wi-Fi apparatus is in condition to increase more and more in house.
It is necessary to install "Wi-Fi router", and to make environment to be able to use Wi-Fi in house or cafe. The Wi-Fi router gives radio wave, and it is said that range of about 100m arrives on the average.
However, is place where Wi-Fi is hard to lead to in house even if within range that it is smaller than 100m?
In house, there is thing interfering with electric wave of Wi-Fi with wall or door, household appliances. When it is said with apartment built with steel reinforced concrete in particular and bearing wall, household appliances made firmly, microwave ovens hit that.
Therefore place that communication is unstable in comes out of Wi-Fi router at place in less than 100m.
Mesh Wi-Fi is method by to increase plural exclusive repeaters called satellite separately from Wi-Fi router, scatter load of router.
Originally mesh Wi-Fi was technique developed as product for public Wi-Fi and industry, but it came to be used for household use by around 2017.
Method to stabilize Wi-Fi communication in house includes existence called "broadcast machine". We are apt to confuse broadcast machine with mesh Wi-Fi, but, in fact, we are similar and are thing named fault.
By installing between Wi-Fi apparatus and routers, broadcast machine works as "mediation" of each other's electric waves.
By broadcast machine receiving radio wave that Wi-Fi apparatus emitted, and conveying information to router, with Wi-Fi apparatus
It is available without communication breaking off even if router is far.
When we set Wi-Fi, we decide network name called SSID. And when you add broadcast machine, you will have network name unlike Wi-Fi and must turn frequency called "channel".
In other words, repeater is only "intermediate position" reporting radio wave from Wi-Fi apparatus to Wi-Fi router, and burdens on router do not decrease. When you want to use broadcast machine, you must change frequency.
Mesh Wi-Fi acts like the other self of Wi-Fi router unlike broadcast machine mediating between electric wave.
Because range where electric wave reaches in comparison with then spreads out, Wi-Fi communication environment that was easy to break off becomes stable.
Mesh Wi-Fi is particularly recommended to family, "only a part of the room has bad electric wave".
Speaking of terminal to connect to Wi-Fi, PC and smartphone were main in old days. However, apparatuses to connect to Wi-Fi including household appliances and game console, TV and Smart speaker in the present when IoT where thing leads to the Internet advanced, and to use increase rapidly.
Parent is not that the scene where children use PC and game console, tablet for on the second floor is rare using PC in living.
Line is crowded, and communication becomes unstable when we connect many terminals to Wi-Fi at the same time.
Mesh Wi-Fi functions as the other self of Wi-Fi router as introduced some time ago. Therefore line becomes hard to be crowded even if connected Wi-Fi apparatuses increase.
About difference between mesh Wi-Fi and broadcast machine, we introduced that it was necessary to change by manual operation when we went by way of broadcast machine some time ago. As it is necessary to make SSID which is network name a different one, we are not automatically changed.
However, existence like the other self of Wi-Fi router that mesh Wi-Fi is set up by the cause.
In other words, he/she automatically goes as we can make network name the same when we go by way of mesh Wi-Fi.
Terminal judges strength of electric wave of mesh Wi-Fi in Wi-Fi router, and it is said to tie to which is strong in radio wave without permission.
In other words, it is in communication environment that is smooth without being conscious of mesh Wi-Fi as Wi-Fi router widens range usable smoothly.
It is mesh Wi-Fi to think of to be absoluteness, but there is precaution, too.
At first, it is transmission rate of Wi-Fi. It is fact that range where we introduce mesh Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi is usable spreads out, but original purpose is "stability" of line environment and is not improvement of speed. Electric wave of Wi-Fi does not need to become strong.
Even if case "that the present Wi-Fi environment wants to nominate processing speed for though it is stable" introduces mesh Wi-Fi, it will be hard to feel merit.
However, speed of communication does not improve; even if untie, is level in comparison with "high-performance router". When it is result that communication environment is unstable in, and connection of Wi-Fi becomes slow, we will feel that speed rose when we introduce mesh Wi-Fi.
When it is result that Wi-Fi apparatus increased to, and communication becomes slow, speed is improved by mesh Wi-Fi.
It is necessary for mesh Wi-Fi to make setting information including network name the same as original Wi-Fi router. It cannot be just said that only mesh Wi-Fi turns setting as it is positioning called "the other self" of Wi-Fi router.
Therefore it is recommended that Network senior to "want to change setting for each router" examines method except mesh Wi-Fi.
Mesh Wi-Fi is just made assuming Wi-Fi communication which is wireless LAN. Therefore, in the outlet of port necessary for wired LAN, few products including around two are main.
However, transmission rate is fast in wired LAN, and we can handle much information, and there is merit when attack risk from the outside is low.
Case "that plural wired LAN use though we want to introduce mesh Wi-Fi" will choose thing with much number of the ports of wired LAN.
As the number of the ports of general Wi-Fi router is about four, it does not disturb wired LAN if around four outlets of port are mesh Wi-Fi that there is.
We put in the center of house
As router works while taking out electric wave radially, we can transfer electric wave efficiently by putting in the center of house if possible. It is passable that intention, corner of the inside and house of shelf avoid mesh Wi-Fi to put in the middle of house likewise.
We avoid water tank neighborhood
As radio wave that microwave oven emits disturbs, we will keep away if possible.
There are many people seeming unexpectedly, but electric wave of Wi-Fi is absorbed in water. Therefore what place where there is many water including water tank avoids is recommended.
It is 1~2m from floor
We put in high place
1~2m is high, and let's install router in place with a few obstacles around from floor. Communication environment improves only in this.
