The advanced WLAN test makes it easy for you to set up your ideal home network.
The advanced WLAN test allows you to analyze your WLAN coverage at home in more detail. As you walk through your home, the advanced WLAN test gives you a live view of your WLAN speed (Mbps) and signal strength (dBm). This way you can find any connection holes in your WLAN network to close them, or you can find ideal locations for your home office, WLAN box or smart devices to have a consistently strong connection.
For WLAN speed, you can use the following recommendations as a guide:
|Daily Life e.g. Social Media, Youtube, E-Mails||minimum 16 Mbps|
|Multimedia e.g. Swisscom TV, streaming||minimum 50 Mbps|
|Gaming e.g. Update-Downloads, smooth gameplay||minimum 100 Mbps|
For WLAN signal strength, you can use the following recommendations as a guide:
|Good||up to -40 dBm|
|Moderate||-40 to -85 dBm|
|Critical||from -85 dBm|
