What is WiFi?
WiFi is a another term for wireless broadband. It refers to a broadband signal that's transmitted around the house in the form of radio waves by a wireless router.
The result is that you can use a wireless signal to get online with multiple internet-enabled devices in all rooms of your home.
That's in contrast to old-fashioned wired broadband, which required you to plug in a cable to the device you wanted to use to go online. And could only provide internet connectivity to one device at a time.
How do I set up WiFi?
To set up WiFi, you simply have to plug in your router and download some broadband software. But it's important you think hard about where to place your router to ensure the signal extends around the home and won't mean that some rooms are blackspots.
We'd suggest you place it somewhere high-up or on a wall. And don't hide it away in a cupboard or behind something that'll obstruct the signal.
