Depending on the size of your house and construction, having a couple of walls between you and the Wi-Fi router can cause a huge drop in performance. Newer home Wi-Fi Mesh Network devices can go a long way towards solving this. This allows you to have access points at various spots in your home to maximize the strength of your network based on your needs.
I'd like to put in a Ubiquiti system. One big problem is that what may potentially be our master bedroom when we renovate it is an addition on the far end of the house from our router. Since it's an addition, there's a brick wall between it and the rest of the house. Terrible wifi.Data drops FTW.
I can easily run data drops through the attic or crawlspace. (In fact I think some gamers lived here before me because there are remnants of cat 5 in the crawlspace and attic. It was just run in the most ad-hoc way possible.)
