Depending on the age of the house and how it was built, placing wi-fi
in the basement can cause it to have a very short range, even within
Of course, my house for some reason has built-in faraday cages (a wire
mesh between a drywall layer and a plaster layer), who knows why.
This makes wi-fi and cell service a pain but might be a selling point
for some people.
I've had much better luck with range by placing the router as high as
possible within the house.
