When you sign up for Viasat, a professional technician will install all of your Viasat equipment for you, including setting up your home Wi-Fi network. The Viasat Wi-Fi router will have a good reach in your house, but as with all Wi-Fi networks, the signal gets weaker with distance and when passing through walls. Because of this, it’s possible you will want to boost the Wi-Fi signal to reach every nook and cranny of your house. Boosting a Wi-Fi signal can increase the signal’s range and help it get around objects that might weaken the signal.
The first step in getting the most out of your Wi-Fi network is to place the router in a central location. If you can get it closer to the middle of your house instead of next to exterior walls or in a basement, the signal will be able to reach more places. With optimal placement, you might not need a booster at all. You might be able to reach every corner of your house without a booster.
But if going through walls or over long distances is still preventing the signal from reaching certain areas of your house, or if the signal is too weak to provide a consistent connection, the next step is to look into Wi-Fi boosters. Viasat Wi-Fi routers are pretty standard, so most Wi-Fi boosters should be compatible. Wi-Fi boosters may also be called repeaters or range extenders. All will perform the same basic task: helping your Wi-Fi reach more areas of your home. All you have to do is plug the booster into an outlet somewhere between your Viasat Wi-Fi router and the area that isn’t receiving coverage and follow your particular booster’s instructions for connecting to your Wi-Fi network. This is an easy, affordable way to make sure your Wi-Fi network covers your entire house or office.
