ASK AN EXPERT: Is My Roof Affecting My Wi-Fi?

Okay, this might sound crazy, but can my roof affect my Wi-Fi signal?

Depends on the type of roof. Metal roofs have been known to interfere with weak Wi-Fi signals, especially if the router is positioned on the same floor as the roof.

Here's what you can do:

Relocate your router: Moving the router to a different location on a lower floor can significantly improve signal strength.

Upgrade your antenna: Consider using a stronger antenna for your router to boost the signal.

Mesh network system: For larger homes or those with thick metal roofs, a mesh network system can provide better overall Wi-Fi coverage.

If you suspect your roof is affecting your Wi-Fi signal, consult with an internet service provider or a networking specialist for solutions.
