How Can I Connect Our Spare House to WiFI?

Episode 1681 (30:20)

Janelle from Oregon

Janelle has a Netgear Orbi and she'sĀ been having issues with her RING doorbell dropping out front. Leo says that RING works best on 2.4 GHz, but that's also very congested. Leo suggests going into the RING settings and set the RING to connect to the 2.4 GHz band. And if she can name the band, it can be easier to connect. But she also may have a neighbor that has a powerful router that is knocking the connection offline. Wifi also doesn't like going through barriers, and since Janelle is trying to go out to her tiny house in the backyard, having the router line of sight near a window facing it would be best. There's a great article on ARS Technica on how to position your router for the best signals. Orbi also has an outdoor satellite option, that may work better.
