Getting Internet In A New Home? 4 Ways To Create A Discreet Setup


When you buy a home, you may intend on signing up for an Internet plan as soon as you move in so that your family can start using the Internet right away. If you know that your Internet usage is not going to change, you may intend on picking the same download and upload speeds as your existing plan. The challenging part may be getting a discreet Internet setup in your new home.

Moving into a larger home means that you may need to get creative with certain equipment to provide a reliable Internet connection throughout the whole house.

Wireless Extenders

In a huge home, especially one with a basement and second story, you may find that you need to add wireless extenders in certain areas to strengthen the connection in the weakest areas. The wireless extenders will need to be plugged in, but you do not need to plug them into an electrical outlet directly. An alternative is to use a surge protector after plugging it into a nearby outlet.

By using a long enough surge protector, you can conceal the device behind a piece of furniture and then the wireless extender will not be visible when looking around the area.

Ethernet Cables

While your family may be comfortable with a wireless connection for certain devices, you may want to provide everyone with the option to use wired connections. An easy way to hide Ethernet cables is to run them underneath the carpet on the edges. You can also put small holes in walls in hidden areas and run the cables through a room or two to put them in certain rooms. Your internet access provider can point out the best places for the wires and holes.


If you are not getting a fiber-optic connection, you will need to use a modem for Internet. These devices can be somewhat large and have LED lights in numerous areas. If you want to keep the lights from being seen, you will want to hide the modem in a cabinet with a solid door. However, you will want to make sure there is enough airflow to keep the modem from overheating.


The router is where you will be getting the signal for your wireless connections. This device will also be used to route all your Ethernet cables throughout the house. You should place it in an area that makes it easy to run several cables under the carpeting or through the walls. Shopping for a high-end router will make it possible to get one that allows you to turn off the LED lighting.

Using these tips will help you make a discreet Internet setup for your new home.
