    To help you better understand your Wi-Fi-internet situations here are a few questions:


    1. Where is the location of the wireless router?

    2. Where is the location of the modem that it plugs into?

    3. How far is your pantry from the wireless router?

    4. Is the wireless guarded by a password or is it public for use?

    5. How many devices do you run PantryTrak on during your pantry hours?

    6. Are other devices not associated with PantryTrak running during pantry hours?

    7. What’s the name brand of your computers, laptops, and tablets?

    8. What’s the name brand of your wireless router?

    9. Who is your internet provider, and do they supply you with other services such as cable, telephone, ect.?

    10. Are the walls between the router and your pantry brick/concrete?

    11. Is the space between your pantry and the source of the wifi more than 1000sq.ft?

    12. Does your pantry work out of a basement?

    13. Is the wifi and the Pantry located in separate buildings?

    14. Does you distribution take place outdoors?


    We have a few options you can try to enhance your wireless:

    • Be sure your computers, laptops, and tablets are fully charged and updated before distribution.

    • Move the wireless router away from modem using a longer internet cable (cat5) into a room closer to your pantry.

    • Set a password for your wireless internet, if one does not already exist.

    • Try to keep all of your technology brands the same if possible. (Ex. NETGEAR, TP-LINK, D-Link Systems, CISCO, ect.)They are compatible with each other however; using the same brand provides better service.

    • You can buy:

    Device

    When to use it.

    How it works.

    Wi-Fi Extender

    Distance (>40ft) between Wi-Fi devices, or more than two devices working at the same time, weakening the Wi-Fi.

    Plugs directly into Wi-Fi device to strengthen signal or a wall where the Wi-Fi signal has begun to weaken.

    Wi-Fi Repeater

    Distance and barriers between Wi-Fi devices.

    Concrete/brick walls or several floors between Wi-Fi devices.



    Part of the device plugs near the Wi-Fi router or repeater and the other plugs in near your pantry.

    Wireless Access Point

    Distance and barriers that weaken the signal between Wi-Fi devices.

    Can be a stand-alone device to plug into wall.

    Wireless hub

    With multiple devices that do not have Wi-Fi ability like a desktop and other Wi-Fi devices connected with internet cable (cat5).

    It strengthens the signal and allows the use of non-Wi-Fi devices with Wi-Fi without connecting to the main modem.

    Wireless USB Adapter/ High gain antennas

    A small distance (40ft) with a weak Wi-Fi signal.

    Attaches to a router, or computer to strengthen the Wi-Fi signal.
