How to Boost Your Satellite Internet Signal at Home

boost satellite signal

Whether sending emails from the comfort of your bed or winding down with YouTube videos on the living room couch, wireless Internet access is a luxury most of us enjoy daily. That’s why it can feel a little irritating finding an area of your home with a weak or non-existent Wi-Fi signal. You might wonder how to boost your Wi-Fi signal strength in those areas to maximize your satellite Internet experience. A Wi-Fi booster is perfect for supplementing your satellite Internet service and stretching the signal range.

What is a Wi-Fi Booster?

A Wi-Fi booster (or extender) is an accessory that helps expand your existing Wi-Fi network when the router can’t cover your entire house. Wi-Fi boosters offer an effective way to increase Wi-Fi coverage without requiring a hardware change.

How Do Wi-Fi Boosters Work?

Wi-Fi boosters are relatively simple devices. They connect to existing Wi-Fi networks, duplicate their signals, and rebroadcast them for you to access, effectively increasing the coverage of your Wi-Fi signal. Typically placed midway between the Wi-Fi router and any dead zones, boosters need to be close enough to your router to connect to its network but also near enough to uncovered areas to offer an effective signal.

Do Wi-Fi Boosters Work with Satellite Internet?

Yes, they do! Hughes offers a premium Wi-Fi Booster that enables HughesNet® subscribers to seamlessly extend the range of the satellite Internet connection wherever needed. Here are just a few of the perks:
