MIMO Wi-Fi routers

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011 by | Filed Under: Hardware & Peripherals

Sandy from Alberta asks:

What’s a MIMO Wi-Fi Router? Will it extend my wireless range?

The ever-changing advances in wireless communications have called for various technologies to increase data throughput and link range to improve performance.

One such example is MIMO (multiple input, multiple output). It is an antenna technology, which uses multiple antennas at both the source and the destination. This has led to improvements in applications of digital television, wireless local area networks, cell phone communication, and metropolitan area networks. Luckily for us, MIMO technology has helped Wi-Fi channels to have increased network bandwidth, range, and reliability.

However, MIMO Wi-Fi routers can supposedly get a range of up to 100 feet indoors and 1,000 feet outdoors. Whether you achieve this or not depends on what obstructions and/or interference there are between your computer and the router. Look for companies that have MIMO routers with good speed, eliminating dead spots in the house and outdoors, and have simple set-ups.

One good example of this is Belkin’s Wireless G+MIMO Router. It is perfect for individuals and small offices because it provides a reliable and wider coverage area.
