I have a house of 1200 SFT, will it cover whole house, when i use WIFI?


Please note that actual data throughput and coverage will vary from home to home based upon the environmental conditions in the area and where the D-Link router is actually placed within the network.

Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, buildings materials, construction, network overhead and competing network overlap from other wireless devices and networks may impede and affect the actual data throughput rate as well. These variable conditions along with any environmental factors such as the weather and humidity which also have an impact on the actual wireless signal range make it very difficult to determine your actual signal range.

However, there are also other available options to assist you in increasing your wireless range as well such as changing channels on the access point to see if signal strength improves with each channel change and or adding a wireless range extender such as our D-Link DAP-1320 product, which can amplify a weak wireless signal from within your network and retransmit it out therefore extending your wireless range as well.
