Have Wi-Fi dead zones? Here are solutions to help.
SAN ANTONIO – If you’re stuck or working from home and you have a spotty internet connection or dead zones around the house, Wi-Fi range extenders may be an affordable solution. “We had a dead zone on the deck in my backyard where we would hang out and barbecue,” said Consumer Reports electronics tester Rich Frisco. So, Frisco used his own home as part of Consumer Report’s testing of Wi-Fi extenders. Two that did well in Consumer Reports tests were the Netgear Nighthawk EX7000, which costs $90 to $140 and the TP-Link RE220 for $30. A less expensive network recommended by Consumer Reports is the TP Link Deco Whole Home, a three-pack for $170.
Wi-Fi buses were a quick solution for student internet access, but as schools reopen they need their buses back
But with more students returning to in-person classes, some school districts now need to get those buses back on the road while still figuring out how to provide internet access to families needing it. The Austin Independent School District has been deploying 261 Wi-Fi-equipped buses across 40 neighborhoods with little or no home internet access, said Eduardo Villa, a district spokesperson. Wi-Fi bus programs were an affordable, quick-turn solution to long-standing problems getting students in rural and underserved neighborhoods access to the internet. But it was meant to be temporary, internet access experts said. Students in households with limited or nonexistent internet access were among the first group, along with students with disabilities and English language learners, given the option to return to schools in person.
