Do you have a wireless router? Do you know what type of Wifi connections are enabled on it? Do you know that wifi technology has changed drastically over the last 20 years? If you are using a router you bought prior to 2014 it is likely outdated and will not work on newer wifi enabled devices (Smart TVs, Smart home apps, etc). Put it this way. If there is new technology you are using in your home, you would likely need and or benefit from a new wireless router. When I say new, I'm not talking about one that you can purchase off the shelf at a local retailer. I'm talking about the technology within that wireless router being new.
Wifi tech can be found by the generation or IEEE Standard indicator on the box or label. See below diagram which breaks this down. The newest wifi standard or technology would have a "ax" indicator on it. We would recommend the TP_Link Archer AX1500 if your looking for a cost effective way to get the latest wifi tech. Be advised that wifi router only can broadcast effectively up to about 1200 square feet. If your home or coverage area is greater than 1500 sq feet, you'd likely need to upgrade your wireless system to a mesh network. This combines multiple access points under one network name and will automatically connect your wifi device to the closet hub. We would recommend the Eero Mesh System or the TP-Link Deco Mesh system if your needing larger home wifi coverage.
