Extend your wireless network with Wi-Fi pods
Wi-Fi pods are small devices you plug into a power outlet. Once you pair them with your Helix Fi Gateway, they enable you to extend your home’s Wi-Fi network coverage. Wi-Fi pods help improve your wireless connection by eliminating areas where coverage weakens, also known as “dead zones”. You’ll then enjoy consistent coverage in every room!
These pods are optional, since the Helix Fi Gateway is often enough to provide you with a fast connection and reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. However, if you notice your Wi-Fi signal is weak or inconsistent in certain rooms, you should consider getting some pods.
Remember that several factors may affect your internet speed, such as your connection type or the number of devices used. Get more tips on how to optimize your home network’s Wi-Fi connection speed.
How can I get Wi-Fi pods?
If your home features three or four bedrooms and several floors, we recommend that you add a set of three Wi-Fi pods to your installation package. Contact us to make an appointment!
The recommended number of pods depends on various factors, such as the size of your home, its construction materials and where your Helix Fi Gateway is located. You’ll therefore have the opportunity to purchase additional pods. Ask one of our Customer Service representatives for advice on the optimal number of Wi-Fi pods you should get. However, you should know that when your equipment is installed, the technician will make sure the right number of pods are installed in your home.
