Need to extend range of WiFi for ONE spot.

  compumac 09:28 07 Apr 2020

I have several Google minis around the house, primarily as a safety unit as a means of communication with the outside world.

I find that there is a spot in one room that the Google mini does not maintain WiFi connection, If I move the unit just two feet in one direction it then receives that connection.

Would a WiFi extender be beneficial or are there any suggestions out there as to how to overcome this?

for full coverage a mesh system is the way to go but it is expensive

a wifi extender could do what you want in this case

but for the sake of moving it two feet is it worth it?
