Consider using devices connected via network cable

By using some devices connected by network cable, you will make the WiFi of your router freer for the devices that really need to operate wirelessly. In addition, the connection via a network cable is very stable, so you can get even lower latency. Check how to connect phones by network cable in the article "Connect your phone to the router using network cable".

Disclaimer: Unfortunately, TP-Link routers haven't worked well with StageWave. If you cannot find the routers on the list in your country, write to us and we will help you find one.
