Hi everyone,

I would like to know how far the Wifi can reach. I want to share my wifi with my cousin living upstairs. Is it possible for her to access the wifi?

Hi Tung,

One floor up or one floor down should be no problem.
At two floors, the signal will not be very strong.

What type of building is it? Know that denser floors such as concrete can impede wifi signals.

As Fizzy Mentioned, dense and /or concrete floors will weaken the WiFi signal, my friend connected with his sister's upper duplex modem by RJ45

Hi Tung, it will depend on wich Floor you are located, a test speed might be necessary. I suggest contact the customer Service to be sure either on Facebook messenger (https://facebook.com/fizzca.) or Fizz Website by oppening this link https://fizz.ca/fr/faq/comment-modifier-mes-renseignement... and simply scroll down until you see the Green Bubble, Click on it to start your Chat session with the customer service. Good Luck, they will be able to help you ! ! :)

Hi Tung,

Your cousin should have no problem getting wifi upstairs. However, depending on their usage, you might consider at least connecting via the 2.4GHz frequency. But obviously, an ethernet connection would be best. Though you wouldn't ask for wifi range if you could get one :P

Basically,
2.4GHz: (+) larger coverage area, better at successfully penetrating solid objects | (-) lower data rate, more susceptible to interference
5GHz: (+) higher data rate, less susceptible to interference | (-) smaller coverage area, less successful at penetrating solid objects

If want to know more about the difference between wifi frequency, here's detailed explanation:

Hope it helps :)

I live in an appartment situated on the 3 floor of an old house. The modem is situated at one end of the appartment but I still get signal all the way on the other side of the appartment, in the parking, 3 stories lower. Depending on the construction of your building, you might have some problems but I reckon the signal can be quite vast.

Cheers

Hello Tung.
I think it should work fine if she's upstairs to you. I would advise to place your modem in the middle of the appartment to have a best signal everywhere.
Have a good day !
