Do you have spotty Wi-Fi coverage in some parts of your home or office? You can do something about it by extending your current Wi-Fi network with an extra AirPort Base Station!

Wi-Fi has made connecting multiple devices to the internet much easier than in the internet dark ages of wired connected access. Now that we rely on our various devices to be always connected, having poor Wi-Fi coverage in your home or office is a frustrating problem. Luckily, there are technologies that can extend your Wi-Fi coverage using your same Network Name and Password. Although you'd have more than one hardware Access Point, your devices will only "see" one physical network. Apple's AirPort Base Station makes extending your network coverage a breeze when using two or more Base Stations.

Make certain you've properly set up your primary network

Additionally, if you're more concerned with protecting your children from too much access to the internet, you can follow our guide to set timed limits on internet access with your AirPort Base Station. Finally, you can ensure you're getting the best possible Wi-Fi connectivity by following our Wi-Fi diagnostics guide to find out which Wi-Fi Channel you should be using for your area.
